Pastor Jonathan Meraz


Pastor Meraz was born in Newton, IA.  He and his lovely wife Julie were married in 1982.  Pastor Meraz is a second career pastor who served at Zion Lutheran Church in Plainview, NE from 2003-2016.  His District President states "His pastoral characteristics that stand out are tact, patience, cooperation, leadership, administration, and relating to people. His pastoral skills of greater strength are older adult ministry, family ministry, lay leadership, development, personal witnessing, assimilation of new members, preaching content and delivery, teaching, and worship leading.  He is a strong leader who speaks his mind while also being a caring and dedicated pastor. We are extremely blessed that God has led Pastor Meraz to Trinity!
