Meet Our Staff
Pastor Joe Nollet joined the flock at Our Savior Lutheran in August 2021. Pastor Joe is returning to the North Shore having grown up in Lynn, attending St. Mary's High School. He previously served at churches on the UConn campus in Storrs CT, and Scituate MA. Pastor is joyfully married to Ann Nollet. They have 4 grown sons.
"I think the ministries and opportunities through Our Savior Lutheran Church are a great match for the way God uses me as a pastor" states Pastor Joe. "I have a heart for Bible studies, teaching, and connecting the Good News into the community. I look forward to being creative and intentional in helping people live as disciples of Jesus".
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’s passion is helping others develop their God-given musical gifts to their full potential, at church and in their communities.
She operates an independent voice studio in Rockport, where she works with students of all ages, is founder and director of Share-the-Music, and Choral Director for the Cape Ann Symphony Chorus.
When there is time beyond satisfying the Music Muse (a very demanding and challenging task mistress!), 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.
She is grateful that she has such a supportive, encouraging husband, Hank, and that her children Bill (and wife Holly) and Brittany are in close proximity, even attending and serving together at Our Savior!
