Welcome from Rev. Josh Hatcher

I’m thrilled that you’ve taken the time to explore what the Spirit of God is doing in the Soulard neighborhood of St. Louis. Historic Trinity is an open, uniquely eclectic, and welcoming ministry where we really are, as we say, “a loving, Christ-centered community actively reaching out to all people.”

If you ask me, the great strength of our ministry is our authenticity. We are, if nothing else, raw and real in the life we share under the cross of Jesus.  The love of Christ is for real people with real baggage, real problems, and real joys. You don’t have to pretend here.  You can be your whole and authentic self, bring your real and authentic struggles, your full and unshackled joy, and I promise you will encounter the true and authentic Jesus Christ!

Please take a few minutes to get to know our ministry; centered around our four pillars,  Connect, Worship, Grow, and Care. If there’s ever anything we can do to serve you, don’t hesitate to call the Church Office or shoot me an email at We are here to serve God, and to serve you.

I would love to meet you personally, and invite you to come and worship with us, or to come be a part of any of our Fellowship and Bible Study gatherings. Whether you’re a life-long Christian looking for a Church home, or just wondering what a life of faith can mean for you, you’ll always find a warm welcome and a healing spirit here at Historic Trinity!

Christ’s Peace,

Rev. Josh Hatcher
Senior Pastor
Historic Trinity Lutheran Church
