Trudi Lappe

Worship Arts Assistant

I grew up on a farm near Columbus, NE.  Venturing to Concordia College in Seward seemed like a safe distance and yet through that God led me to meet Dustin!  We married in December 1995.  Our first teaching call took us to Juneau, Alaska!  God called Dustin into the pastoral ministry and we spent the next years in St. Louis at Seminary.  I enjoyed teaching grades 2-4 during the next years in both St. Louis and Gilbert, Arizona.  After years of struggle, God grew our family and I got to stay home with our four children:  Trinity (2005), Skylar and Sydona (2007) and Lincoln (2011).  

When Dustin accepted the call as Associate Pastor to Messiah in 2016, we decided it was time for me to reenter the workforce.  What a pleasure it is to serve on the Messiah team!  I help out in the school, direct SONshine Choir, and assist our Worship Arts Director, Chase.   

I enjoy reading, redecorating, watching Hallmark movies and singing.  Sitting on our front porch is a favorite pastime!  We are blessed to be in the Messiah family and seek to reach out to others with the love the Jesus!
