Quinn joined HTLC in December 2014, after having served in many different capacities in the Youth ministry area for the past six years, including most recently as Staff in Training Director at Lutheran Retreats, Camps, and Conferences in Frazier Park, CA. Prior to that Quinn was Youth Director at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in Dana Point from 2012 until 2014.
From 2009 until 2012, Quinn was Camp Counselor at Lutheran Retreats, created Bible studies and worships for on-site leadership programs, and served as Resident Assistant at California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks.
In his first month at Holy Trinity, Quinn has quickly endeared himself to the middle and high school youth and has generated numerous program topics that pique student interest and result in lively conversation and thought.
On Tuesday nights Quinn can be found working with High School students in the Hut focusing on a wide range of Bible study topics; on Wednesday he is with middle school students during Confirmation class.
On Sunday mornings, he can be found leading lively welcome celebrations for the Sunday school students including children ages Pre-K through middle school. They sing songs, share “joys” such as birthdays or other news, dance, and then depart for their classrooms.
Quinn grew up in Oceanside, CA and is favorite place to be is at the beach – preferably Carlsbad. Quinn also loves all things cars and enjoys going to car shows. His biggest role models in life have been the pastors he is close with: Rev. Steve Awbrey, Rev. Ramon Zarate and the Rev. Melissa Doherty and Rev. Scott Maxwell Doherty. “They passed on wisdom, love, compassion, care and sometimes a swift kick to the rear,” states Quinn.
