Christ-Centered Church in Fairhope, PA

Thank you for visiting Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church online. Wherever you are in your journey of faith, we are thankful being able to assist you any way possible in a Christ-like manner. Here at Trinity we are a country congregation, located in the beautiful Allegheny Mountains of Somerset County, Pennsylvania. Our congregation of Bible believing Christians are truly one big family as God intended His New Testament Church to be. We care about each other in Christ’s Love. Here at Trinity we all are Disciples of Christ, not just the Pastor, therefore our member’s spiritual needs are met on a higher level of grace, personal care and prayer.

Pastor Paul's Welcome

We would welcome anyone to come and give our church a try. We offer both creative and hymnal worship styles. At Trinity you are only a visitor here once, because people will greet you and make you feel at home.

I’m blessed to be working on my 18th year here at Trinity as their Pastor and at this time have plans to retire here. This is important to people, because it gives continuity to our church program.

My formal education consists of an Associate’s Degree in Arts, a Bachelor’s Degree Criminal Justice Specialist and I have more than is required for a Master’s Degree in Theology. 

Our pastor shares our congregation's passion for welcoming the lost to Christ and edifying the church body. Pastor Paul has been ministering to our congregation since 2001.

New Book!

A new book by Rev Paul Yanke is available for purchase online.

Everyone experiences discouragement in one way or another. If your faith needs strengthening or you just need encouragement to stay on the Christian course in the evil world that we live in, this is the book for you.


With the universal Christian Church, The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod teaches and responds to the love of the Triune God:

the Father, creator of all that exists;

Jesus Christ, the Son, who became human to suffer and die for the sins of all human beings and to rise to life again in the ultimate victory over death and Satan; and

the Holy Spirit, who creates faith through God’s Word and Sacraments.

The three persons of the Trinity are coequal and coeternal, one God.
