Pastor Dustin Beck was installed as Trinity’s new pastor on June 26, 2011. He grew up in Wichita Falls, Texas, where he attended Our Redeemer Lutheran Church from birth. His parents, Douglas and Kathy, and sister Alison always provided a loving family environment, and he grew up participating in many activities around the church. During his senior year of high school, Pastor felt led to study for the ministry. Around that time he met Chelsea Holloway, and over the course of about seven years the two became friends, dated, became engaged and were married on June 20, 2009.
Pastor Beck is a graduate of Concordia University in Austin, where he studied Psychology and Biblical Languages. Chelsea is also a CUA graduate where she earned her Bachelor’s degree in elementary education with a Lutheran teacher’s certificate. Pastor next attended Concordia Seminary in St. Louis and received his Masters of Divinity on May 20th, 2011. Pastor recalls that the most exciting words he heard in his seminary career were “Dustin Beck…Pastor…Trinity Lutheran Church…Corpus Christi, TX”, on May 4th.
The Becks love Corpus Christi, and in the few years they’ve been in South Texas, they have started a family, with three sons. The Becks thank God for the opportunities that He has placed before them and the people that He has put in their path!
