Trinity Presbyterian Church began meeting together as Trinity Reformed Church in December, 2005. Its meetings were held first at the Methodist Church and then moved to the Covenant Christian High School where worship services have been held. After meeting with members of the Mission to North America Committee of the Great Lakes Presbytery, Trinity sought to become aligned with the Presbyterian Church in America.
Trinity Presbyterian Church, serving DeMotte, Indiana, was formed as a mission work in the Presbyterian Church in America at its Presbytery of the Great Lakes meeting on March 3, 2007.
The Session of Good Shepherd Presbyterian Church, Valparaiso, IN was appointed as overseeing session.
On November 11, 2007, Brian Allred was ordained and installed as Assistant Pastor (of Good Shepherd Presbyterian) for planting at Trinity Presbyterian Church in DeMotte, IN. Subsequently, on March 6, 2008, twenty-five people were received as our first members of Trinity Presbyterian Church Mission. Pastor Allred continued to serve the congregation until he accepted another call in June, 2009.
On December 11, 2009, Teaching Elder Stephan R. Van Eck was approved by the Presbytery of the Great Lakes and his installation as Assistant Pastor (of Good Shepherd Presbyterian) for planting at Trinity Presbyterian Church in DeMotte, IN was held on January 31, 2010.
On March 6, 2011, our congregation, until then a mission church, became a particularized (organized) congregation of the Presbyterian Church in America. At the same time, Reverend Stephan R. Van Eck was installed as the Organizing Pastor of the congregation. Our first elders were also ordained and installed.
