Leader Q&A: Allison Wopata


What is your role at Trinity? 

I am responsible for Trinity's design work, and my husband (Mark) and I lead a small group.

Where else are you involved in the community? 

Mark and I are soon-to-be foster parents!  I also lead a college bible study with some really fun Mizzou women.

What's your favorite thing about Columbia? 

I love that Columbia combines all the best parts of being a smaller community with many of the cultural offerings of a larger city.  There's always interesting things going on, and you'll probably run into someone you know!  I also love walking Columbia's trails. And reading a good book on the patio at Uprise.

What's one crazy thing you have to do before you die? 

Mostly this is just a long, long list of places I'd like to travel. Mark and I once spent 48 hrs in Ireland, and I loved the beauty and quiet of the landscape. I want to go back and take our time there. I've also hiked a couple of Colorado 14ers-- there's no feeling quite like it, and I want to conquer several more before I die!

What aspect of Trinity's vision do you most resonate with? 

I am grateful for our church's desire to seek gospel-driven renewal of our community.  We long to see hearts changed, and we are committed to using each of our gifts and passions for the flourishing of our community.
