As a young adult, Rebecca believed she would be a missionary. This didn’t happen, but God’s hand has been on her life in amazing ways. She feels privileged to serve Him at Trinity Church. This position brings all her passions for service – discipleship, outreach, missions, and design – together.

Coming from a musical family, Shirley Woodson started piano at age six, organ as a teenager, and majored in organ performance. Burned out from music and leaving the church while living in Hawaii, she quit playing for more than ten years.
Coming home to San Diego, through God’s intervention, Shirley took an organ job at Northminster Presbyterian Church when her cousin retired. During her 10 years playing there, God took hold of her life. She left Northminster for a two-year break from music. God again intervened, bringing her to Trinity Church when her boss’s wife wanted to retire to follow her son’s baseball career.
She began playing on January 1, 1997, and continues to be an active member of Trinity Church.
Caleb Taylor started coming to to Trinity for Logos (now Kids Kingdom) when he was young and has essentially lived here ever since.

Caleb has two Associate's degrees, one in Fine Arts, the other in Graphic Design.
