ABOUT OUR PASTOR

Pastor Nico Kinner

FIRST, WE WANT TO SAY THANKS FOR CHECKING US OUT. WE'RE PRETTY EXCITED ABOUT WHAT GOD IS DOING AT OUR CHURCH AND WE'RE GLAD TO HAVE THE CHANCE TO SHARE THAT WITH YOU.  

Nico Kinner, 31, was raised and lives in Ayersville, Ohio. He also graduated from Ayersville High School in 2008 and lives with his wife, Katie, and their 3 children. Katie and Nico, while they did not attend the same high school, are high school sweethearts who have been together since 2006 and married since 2011. Nico's journey did not necessarily begin at Trinity United Methodist Church, but his formative years that led to his call as a pastor certainly took root there. In 2018, Nico was called away from Trinity UMC as a lay servant to begin his pastoral ministry in Williams county at a 2 point charge. In 2019, Nico joined a 3 point charge in Williams and Defiance counties with Pastor Rachel Widdowson and they are excited to see what God now has in sotre for the members of the Body of Christ in Defiance, Evansport, Stryker and Pulaski!


Pastor Rachel, 28, was born in Dayton and raised all over Ohio. Her father is an Elder in the United Methodist Church, and her mother is a Deacon in the UMC. She has a twin sister named Emily, and a younger brother named Jake. Since growing up all over Ohio she claims Lakeside as her hometown, and currently lives in Bryan in the Pulaski Parsonage. Living with her are her sister, her dog-Winnie, and her cat-Mustachio. In 2020 Pastor Rachel graduated Asbury Theological Seminary with a Master of Divinity. She looks forward to seeing what God has in store for the new partnership.


Nico will be the primary pastor for Trinity UMC and Stryker UMC and Rachel will be the primary pastor for Pulaski UMC and Evansport UMC. They will both be in connection with the other churches. We are happy to be working with them both.
