It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of Barbara Hoff on April 5. She will be missed not only by Trinity but by the whole music community of San Luis Obispo county.

I absolutely love working here at TUMC where there are so many kind and welcoming people. I grew up in Boulder Colorado and moved to Yosemite National Park where my two children were born. And skipping to more recent, I retired in 2011 from the CA. Dept of Corrections and Rehabilitation in Sacramento as an Analyst and moved to the central coast shortly thereafter. I have two amazing grown children, my daughter is a Captain/Firefighter/Paramedic in Cambria and my son is a Firefighter/Battalion Chief in Sequoia National Park. I have two fantastic grandsons that are the love of my life. I live here in the wonderful community of Los Osos with my short, stubby, corgi dog, Radar. Life is good!--
Kasey is a proud graduate of Mills College. Kasey is the one who deserves the credit for the great look of our online worship. Kasey is exceptionally creative and is an accomplished artist. She has shared this talent in our online services and elsewhere.
Kasey has her degree in philosophy and a passion for people. She is devoted to sharing Jesus' message of love for one's neighbors (and enemies) and approaches her ministry through the lens of social justice.
Before the pandemic, Kasey also facilitated our Monday Night Home Group where she encouraged the participants to consider how they can live out Jesus' teachings in their everyday lives.
Kasey has worked in education (and with special needs individuals) since 2006. In her "day job" she works as a special education paraprofessional and specializes in working with children on the autism spectrum.
I grew up in San Luis Obispo where I graduated from Cal Poly with a BS in Psychology and Human Development. I have been at Village Children's Center for the past 9 years.
I enjoy hiking in Montana de Oro and listening to live music around the Central Coast. My life is blessed!
