We look forward to meeting you!

Pastor Christine Stoxen

Christine Stoxen was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and has lived in a number of states including Connecticut, Delaware and South Carolina.  She graduated from Gettysburg College with a B. A. in Psychology in Elementary Education. Following College, she served in the Lutheran Volunteer Corps in Wilmington, DE in a homeless shelter for women and children.  From there, she served as a social worker for the State of Delaware, continuing to work for social justice. In 1995, she felt a call to ordained ministry and in 2000 she graduated from Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary.  Pastor Chris has served three congregations in South Carolina and came to Holy Trinity in Chandler in 2017.  When she is not at the church, you can find her hiking, reading and spending time with her two grown children, Zachary and Nicholas, and their families, which include grandson Oliver.

His award-winning music has been performed across North America and in Europe, with commissions by clarinetist Dimitri Ashkenazy, Boston Musica Viva, and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.

Judi Carle - Office Manager

Judi Carle lived in the Chicago area until 2001 when she escaped the rat race of being a restaurant company CFO (and the snow) to move to Chandler. She spent the next few years writing cookbooks with her teenage daughters and attending Holy Trinity with her family. In 2006, she was looking for a new challenge and found it in Holy Trinity’s office. In her spare time she likes to cook, garden, quilt and read...sometimes all at the same time.
