During the week he's Director of the Truman Institute at Truman State University, and a professor of Communication. He was baptized and active in the United Methodist Church through his childhood and college years and joined the Episcopal Church in Kirksville for its warm, welcoming attitude and progressive values. He is active working on Trinity's Building Campaign and as co-chair of the Communications Committee.

Junior Warden - Pete Kelly

Pete Kelly currently serves as Co-Junior Warden with his friend, Wynne Wilbur. Mostly that work involves organizing for snow removal and lawn care. He is a professor of education at Truman State University. He feels fortunate in that he works with bright students committed to making positive change in the world, and he loves what he does most every day. When time permits on a cool late afternoon, he can be found kayaking on a lake nearby, working in the garden, or biking. He finds no greater joy than in cooking a nice meal to share with friends.


Junior Warden - Wynne Wilbur

Wynne Wilbur is in her third year of serving on the Bishop’s Committee. She is currently Co-Junior Warden with Pete Kelly. Wynne teaches ceramics and art education at Truman State University and is on sabbatical leave for the coming school year.

Besides working in her studio at home making brightly colored majolica pottery, she loves to garden and draws much of her surface inspiration on her artwork from her flowers in her garden. She also plays cello, sings, and has three cats, Simon, Nori and Temi.


Member-at-Large - Kirsty Imes

Kirsty (pronounced Thirsty with a K), in addition to her Vestry duties, works to create the seasonal and weekly bulletins, takes the congregation's weekly food donations to Food Depot, and I has participated in the choir. She serves on the Pastoral Care Committee and the Outreach Committee. She is committed to LGBT issues in Kirksville and beyond and loves what Trinity stands for as an Oasis Congregation. Kirsty observes, "This church has been a safe haven and a wonderful place for me to explore and strengthen my relationship with God while being an openly gay person."

Kirsty grew up in Colorado and spent time in Oregon and Washington State before moving to Kirksville in August 2010 when her partner started medical school. She currently works as a Phlebotomist (draws blood) and volunteers as a Court Appointed Special Advocate for children that have been abused or neglected.

Treasurer - Krista Baker

Treasurer Krista Baker has a love for and long history with the Episcopal Church.  She has served in a variety of roles in the church from Altar Guild member, acolyte, Bishop’s Committee member, Senior Warden, member of calling committees for two different parishes, and capital campaign and building committee member in her previous parish.  However she enjoys the various outreach projects she has been a part of the most.  Krista’s attention to detail and organization compliment her role as treasurer which she has been in for three years. 

Krista and her husband, Tim, both enjoy being a part of the Trinity parish.  For them, the acceptance and love of God is reflected in the worship at Trinity.  They both enjoy the activities, the diverse membership, variety of worship opportunities and opportunities to engage with others that Trinity provides.  They hope to see Trinity grow into a more welcoming place of worship for anyone in the Kirksville community.

When they are not in Kirksville attending to their jobs, they are traveling and/or visiting family and friends scattered across Colorado, Alabama and Florida.  If you want some fun stories, ask Krista about her grandson, her dogs, her husband, and memorable Trinity moments.  Her most recent interests include quilting and knitting.
