Pastor Trena joined the GCN staff as the youth pastor in September 2011.  Prior to that she served as the NYI President at GCN for 2 years.  She graduated from Washburn University in May 1992 with a degree in Early Childhood Education.  Trena completed the Ministry Preparation Program through Nazarene Bible College in December 2015.  

She is passionate about seeing the youth grow in their relationships with Christ.  While many think that students are the future of the church, Trena truly believes they are a part of the church today and can make a huge impact on the church.  Here philosophy in ministry is taken from Lube 2:46 which says "After three days they found him in the temple courts, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking them questions."  Trena believes in sitting with students, listening  to them and asking them questions as she walks the journey of life with them.

She and her husband, an Estimator at GBA Builders LLC, are the parents of one son, one daughter and son-in law, Logan, Morgan & Dillon.   They are also the proud grandparents of one granddaughter, Lawson.
