Serving in Christ's Love and Sharing the Good News

Our Staff

The pastors at Trinity Lutheran believe the church is a faith community that excels in bringing the good news of God's unconditional love alive in people's lives.


Lead Pastor Patrick Patterson

Pastor Patrick grew up in Owatonna, MN, and spent many years in the corporate world before being called to ordained ministry. He graduated from Metropolitan State University in St. Paul, and later received his Master of Divinity from Luther Seminary. He served as the pastor of administration at Christ the King Lutheran Church in Mankato, MN before being called as their Senior Pastor. He joined Trinity as Lead Pastor in July, 2019. Pastor Patrick seeks to discern God’s mission to help lead into God’s preferred future at Trinity.

Pastor Tom Westcott

Pastor Tom is married to his wonderful wife Emily. They have two children, Olive and Rowan, and share their home with their "fur child" Summit.

Pastor Tom finds great joy in exploring what God is up to outside of the church walls and in our everyday lives. "Faith should not be kept within the confines of Sunday mornings or Wednesday evenings. Faith should permeate everything we say and do. Faith should be a way of life," he notes.

Some of his hobbies include home brewing, following local sports, ice fishing, and experimenting with all things BBQ.
