Trinity Wesleyan Church was planted in 1968 by Faith Wesleyan Church as a new church on what was then the south edge of Cedar Falls. Pastor Lowell Stoesz, the founding pastor, had a love for people, an understanding of our urgent need for Jesus, and a vision to do whatever it took to help this new church survive. At times Pastor Stoesz would forego his own paycheck so that the ministry of the church could continue.
The church did survive, and after decades of effective ministry, new pastors, and building expansions, it has grown into a vibrant, gospel-centered, multi-generational church that is located in the heart of Cedar Falls. In 2005 the name was changed to Trinity Bible Church to reflect the historical passion of the church for teaching and living out biblical truth.
