We are Christ's emissaries. Within our doors, we, as the Church, hold the keys to his Kingdom. We envision Trinity, therefore, as a church with open doors and a people with open hearts...
RECEPTIVE to the gifts of the Holy Spirit,
REFLECTIVE on our individual and corporate response to these gifts, and
RESPONSIVE to the spiritual and material needs of our Father's family.
Open doors and open hearts allow free access for the spirit to infuse our lives and dictate our actions, and enable the unencumbered sharing of our gifts.
Meet Pastor Dave Schreffler
Having received my Master of Divinity from the Lutheran Theological Seminary in Gettysburg (LTSG) in May of 2005, I was ordained into the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America on June 10, 2005. I was called to Christ Lutheran Church in Duncannon as their pastor and served there from June 15, 2005 until August 2011. On September 1, 2011 I began serving Trinity Lutheran Church in Lemoyne where I am currently serving as pastor.
Prior to attending LTSG, I worked for St. John Lutheran Church in Shiremanstown as a recreation leader for their daycare called The Children's Garden. I was employed at the daycare from September 1997 until completing my seminary work in 2005. Prior to working at St. John Lutheran Church, I was employed by Hershey Medical Center of the Pennsylvania State University for nine years. I worked there as a Case Manager for a program called Living Unlimited. Living Unlimited provides vocational rehabilitation services to individuals with brain injury, spinal cord injury, mental health and developmental disabilities. Before that I was employed by the Association for Habilitation and Employment of the Developmentally Disabled, assisting individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities find and maintain employment.
I served on the board for the Center for Independent Living for three years. I also served on the board for the Silver Spring Youth Baseball Association for three years. I have served on church council at Trinity Lutheran Church, Camp Hill, proctored various support groups, assisted with coaching my son's baseball teams, and have been head coach for my daughter's soccer team for the last six years.
I have been married to Fritzi Schreffler for thirty years. We have three children and five cats.
