Here are a few things we’d like to share about our school:

  • We have been educating students for over 50 years in the Grand Rapids community.

  • We provide a Christ-centered and grace-filled environment that is safe and nurturing for all our students.

  • Our academic curriculum meets students where they are, as we provide personalized attention for each student.

Meet Our Faculty

Luke Scherschel, Principal, 6th-8th Grade

I majored in Elementary and Secondary Education and English at Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN. I am currently working towards my Masters Degree in Educational Leadership through Martin Luther College. Prior to serving at Holy Trinity, I was principal and 5th-8th grade teacher for 15 years at Zion Lutheran School in Toledo, OH. In my free time I enjoy reading, watching football (go Seahawks!) and basketball (go Gonzaga!), working on home projects and woodworking, and spending time with my wife, Rachel, and our son, David. I take great joy in working with students and watching them grow as Jesus’s disciples.

Rev. Steve Schamber, Pastor

I graduated from Northwestern College in Watertown, WI with a Bachelor of Arts degree and from Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary with a Master of Divinity degree. Prior to serving at Holy Trinity I was pastor at Faith, Tacoma, WA and a pastor at Zion, Rhinelander, WI. In my free time I enjoy hiking, skiing, and doing some woodworking in addition to spending time with my wife, Robin, and our boys, Stephen II, Mark, and Joel whenever we can get together with them. I have enjoyed teaching Catechism classes in my various congregations for the past 29 years.

Keri Eubank, Childcare Director and Teacher

I earned my Child Development Certification specializing in Early Childhood from Grand Rapids Community College. I am currently working towards my Synod Certification from Martin Luther College. I have been at Holy Trinity since 2016 working in the Early Childhood Program. In my spare time I love spending time with my husband Nick, our two boys Connor and Evan, and our little dog Izzy. I also enjoy camping and reading. One of the best things about my job is watching children grow socially, emotionally, but most importantly spiritually by learning about their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. One of my favorite passages is from Isaiah 43:1 “Do not fear for I have redeemed you, I have called you by name; you are mine.”

Jodi Grant, Kindergarten-2nd Grade

I earned my BS in Education from Doctor Martin Luther College in New Ulm, MN and later earned my Master’s Degree in Elementary Education at Grand Valley State University. I love spending time with my family, playing piano, reading, and playing with my family’s miniature dachshund, Fritz. I love working with children and helping them grow in many ways, especially in their love for the Lord.

Dave Barbachyn

3rd-5th Grade

I’ve enjoyed being an elementary school teacher for many years! Prior to teaching at Holy Trinity, I taught first and second grade at Jenison Public Schools. I received my Bachelor of Science degree from Aquinas College and my Masters in Elementary Education from Grand Valley State University. It’s been a pleasure to join the staff at Holy Trinity and be able to share Jesus and my faith with my students. When I’m not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Karen, my adult kids Laura and Josh, and our Bernedoodles Lacey and Charlie. I also enjoy playing tennis and traveling.

Kris Smith, Preschool Teacher and Secretary

My joy is serving our Heavenly Father working with families here at Holy Trinity . I look forward to meeting your family.

My lips will shout for joy when I sing praises to You; And my soul, which You have redeemed. Psalm 71:23
