Lori Henks joined our ministry team in July of 2014. She is our Coordinator of Children’s Music Ministries and directs the Children’s Vocal Choir and Celebration Ringers Children’s Handbell Choir. Lori is also a very talented pianist, sings in our Sanctuary Choir, and plays in our Tower Bells choir
Lori graduated Magna Cum Laude from Wichita State University with a Bachelor of Music Education degree in 1987 and continued her music education with Friends University.
In addition to her position here at Trinity, Lori is the K-6 Vocal Music Teacher for USD 308 at Wiley Elementary. Lori recently received the South Central Kansas Music Educators Association Elementary Teacher of the Year award! To be the recipient of this recognition, a teacher must be recommended by numerous parents, peers and administrators – not an easy thing to accomplish! Not only is Lori an incredible public school music teacher, she does an amazing job of directing our children’s vocal and bell choirs here at Trinity. We are truly blessed to have Lori as part of our awesome leadership team!
In her spare time, Lori enjoys spending time with her family, especially her granddaughter.
