Meet Our Staff
Pastor Joe Nollet Sharing the truth of the Good News and teaming up together with others for ministries are great to be a part of here at Our Savior Lutheran Church.
I grew up on the North Shore (Lynn) and I think our church home here has a special place on this North Shore. I went to St. Mary's High in Lynn, got my undergrad at Salem State, and have a love of New England. I previously served at LCMS churches on the UConn campus in Storrs CT, and Scituate MA. I'm joyfully married to Ann and we have 4 grown sons.
The days ahead hold many opportunities for us at OSLC to be creative and intentional in helping people live as disciples of Jesus". . ..Pastor Joe
Kerry Trunfio - Director of Youth and Family Life Ministries
Kerry Trunfio is the Director of Youth Ministry at Our Savior Lutheran Church. She is a 2012 graduate from Gordon College with a degree in Christian Ministry and a concentration in Youth.
Kerry’s passion for student ministry really became evident in her senior year of high school, when she took part in an internship under the lead Youth Pastor at First Presbyterian Church of the North Shore. Throughout her time at Gordon, she continued to further her experience in ministry as a both a volunteer and intern in the ministry program at First Presbyterian, which helped prepare her for where she is today. She was involved in a broad variety of programs, all with the desire to build relations with students that teach them about the personal relationship available to them with Jesus Christ.
Kerry, and her husband, Joel, who works in the Development Office at Gordon College, have a joyful daughter, Cora. You can often find Joel volunteering with the youth program, and he is always willing to play a game of basketball or foosball with a student!
Wendy Betts is Organist/Director of Music Arts, leading adult and children’s choirs and hand chime ensembles for the liturgical service.

Wendy enjoys walking, reading, weeding, attending concerts and theatre, playing board games with her family, socializing with good friends, and living close enough to her three grandchildren – Virginia, TJ, and Lydia – to be in an integral part of their young lives.
