Trinity’s minister is the Rev. Dr. Michael Scott Luckey, or “Pastor Scott,” as he prefers. Raised in a military family, Pastor Scott has lived in many different places, ranging from Honolulu, Hawaii, to Stuttgart, Germany … and numerous places in between. He likes to tell people that he got to the Promised Land of Texas as fast as he could! His previous pastorates were in Albany, Texas (where cattle far outnumber people), and bi-cultural Brownsville, along the Texas/Mexico border. He also pastored in post-Hurricane Katrina New Orleans, followed by a hospital chaplaincy in the Rio Grande Valley. Pastor Scott has served as Trinity’s minister since 2011, and feels blessed to shepherd such a loving, servant-oriented congregation.
Pastor Scott met his wife, Sarah, at a church renewal event in Colorado, where he was the guest preacher and she was the visiting worship leader. They served for many years as national representatives for Presbyterian-Reformed Ministries International (PRMI), leading church renewal events across the country. Sarah is the daughter of a godly Presbyterian minister (who passed into glory at the age of 100) and works in the hospice field. A gifted worship leader, Sarah is a real “people person” and is a graduate of the University of Alabama, with a bachelor’s and master’s degree in social work. Scott and Sarah are the parents of two children, Matthew and Gracie. Matthew loves basketball and hanging out with his friends, while Gracie is a talented athlete who loves all things “girlie girl.” The fifth member of the Luckey family is a high-strung (but lovable!) goldendoodle dog named Rocky.
Pastor Scott came to know Christ as Savior and Lord while attending First Presbyterian Church of Seattle. His favorite Bible passage is the first chapter of Ephesians, with its sweeping panorama of God’s grace.
In his spare time, Pastor Scott enjoys Alamo and Texas history, reading and writing, and playing the guitar. He is a graduate of the University of Texas at San Antonio, Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary, and Beeson Divinity School at Samford University.
