Trinity First Lutheran School provides education to children aged 3 through eighth grade. Their ministry to children and families serves to build a family of culturally diverse Christian disciples. Their location, in the Phillips neighborhood of Minneapolis, places them in the midst of ethnic, religious, and cultural diversity. Their faithfulness to the Great Commission, to “go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” is clearly evident in the outreach to communities and families, the baptism of multiple students each year, and the ongoing discipleship of children and youth on a daily basis.


Beginning in February 2016, Family of Christ developed a Lead Team to explore a mission partnership with Trinity First as the result of our Congregation’s vote at the January 31 Mission Igniter event. As a church, we have begun to discover:

  • Trinity First’s greatest needs, challenges, and opportunities

  • Family of Christ’s gifts & resources

  • How they can be best combined to make a significant, lasting impact

As a result of those conversations, we were able to discover the basic financial needs and opportunities for Family of Christ to support, existing and new opportunities for volunteers, and how we can begin to develop a true partnership with Trinity First.
