A Word Focused Ministry
"How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to your word. — Psa. 119:9"
Philosophy of Student Ministry
Wellington’s Student Ministry is a ministry of Wellington Church designed to come alongside families as they desire to bring their children up in the fear and admonition of the Lord. The three goals of the ministry are to evangelize, encourage, and edify the people to whom it ministers. There are three distinct groups to whom the ministry reaches out to; each group having its own needs.
The first group the ministry reaches out to are students. The students need to be evangelized, encouraged, and edified by God’s Word and His people. We seek to accomplish all three of these goals by providing a fun, safe, relational and Bible-centered atmosphere in all of our services, events, and activities.
The second group the ministry reaches out to are families, specifically parents. While parents sometimes need to be evangelized themselves, more often they need to be encouraged and edified in their God-given roles as parents. Therefore, the student ministry seeks to come alongside parents in order to help them lead their students in a life pleasing to Christ.
The third and final group the ministry reaches out to is to the servants who pour into the ministry. While evangelism, Lord willing, does not apply to this group of people, the need to be encouraged and edified in their service and life is still absolutely present. Therefore, the ministry seeks to come alongside those who serve so that they can continue to serve for years to come with increasing effectiveness.

The elders of Wellington church prayed for the Lord’s guidance to bring the best individual to lead our youth and their families in ministry. Through our Lord’s gracious providence, Trey Meester was recognized as an individual whose gifts and desires were a great fit for our current needs.
A native of West Virginia and graduate from The Master’s Seminary (M.Div; Th.M.), Trey’s heart for ministry has been cultivated throughout his education as well as his service in various capacities of camp ministries and his internships with children’s and student ministries at Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California.
Trey has a passion for connecting people with the life-changing truth of God’s Word. He and his wife Katie, who is a native of Southern California, happily relocated to central Kentucky spring 2019 following the birth of their first child in February.
Trey and Katie are fully onboard with Wellington’s mission statement to raise up disciples who serve Christ in a way that truly glorifies our Lord. Please pray with us as this is a major endeavor. May the Lord greatly bless our families through their service for His glory!
