Trevor holzschuh

College Minister

As he was studying Journalism at Northern Kentucky University , Trevor felt the Lord calling him to full time college ministry. Trevor has attended and been a member at Christ Baptist Church since 2016. As he was working odd jobs and exploring what full time ministry would look  like in his life, Trevor was a leader in helping to launch Christ College in the fall of 2020. Trevor is now a North American Mission Board (NAMB) sponsored missionary and works with our college students and young adults here at Christ Baptist Church and has a passion for reaching NKU's campus with the Gospel message of Jesus Christ.

When Trevor isn't doing ministry, he loves playing and watching sports, playing board and card games, watching crime shows and action movies, is starting to learn to really enjoy reading, and loves spending time with family, friends, and loved ones!
