Jon Gaska grew up in the Chicago land area where he discovered a love of music. After years of playing gigs at many jazz clubs, restaurants, churches and bars, Jon felt a call into ministry as a pastor. In 2009 he moved to Seattle to go to seminary at the Seattle School of Theology and Psychology. In Seattle he ministered to the homeless, the LGBTQ community, and interned with Street Psalms (a global nonprofit committed to working with the poor and marginalized in high risk urban areas). Jon, his partner Joy, and their three small children are excited to be a part of Trinity's story and the wider Winston- Salem community. Jon has served as pastor at Trinity since March 2014.
