Meet our pastor

Pastor Mark Biebighauser came to Trinity in the summer of 2012. Born and raised in the Twin Cities, he graduated from Concordia-Nebraska in 2004 and received a Master of Divinity from Concordia Seminary- St. Louis in 2008. 

Pastor Mark married his wife Joni in 2004 and together they have been blessed with three kids: Kristen (12), Andrew (10) and Lauren (8). They live in the Medford community and are grateful to call southern Minnesota their home. In the summer of 2020, they also added a puppy to the family! His name is Shea and he is... well, awesome.

Pastor Mark loves to hang out with his family, read, write, walk around town, follow all of his beloved MN sports teams (for better or worse), play a little golf and eat Chinese food and Chicken in a Biskit crackers (occasionally some fruits and vegetables too). He is thrilled to be back in Minnesota and serving the people of Medford and its surrounding communities with the love of Jesus Christ!

To get in touch with him, please feel free to e-mail at or find him on Facebook. He would love to hear from you!

message from pastor mark

You know what I love about my God-given callings as a husband, father, son, pastor, neighbor and friend? Because each and every one of these callings puts me in a position to be with all kinds of different people. These are the people whom God uses to daily bless me in all kinds of ways, and my life's desire and hope is to be a blessing to all of them in return. I am deeply grateful for this "people-centered" way of life God has given and entrusted to me. When I reflect on all those people around me- including you, the one reading this now- my heart "rejoices and is glad" (Psalm 118:24). 

When Jesus sacrificially gave up his life on the cross and rose in victory from the grave, he did it all out of love for sinful people like you and me. It is this Good News that I am privileged to not only receive but also share with others each and every single day. I truly hope God will grow me into the very best "people-person" I can possibly be! Please feel free to get in touch with me anytime. I'd love to share some time rejoicing in each God-given day with you.  -Pastor Mark
