Trinity has "adopted" a husband-wife missionary team in Kenya, Rev. Michael G. Fonner and Leslie Weed-Fonner.


Michael earned a BA in Religion from Dartmouth College, and MDiv in Pastoral Ministry from Harvard Divinity School and a ThD in Comparative Religion from Harvard. Leslie earned a BS in Dental Hygiene from Columbia University, an MEd in Psycho-Education Processes from Temple University and an MSW in Clinical Social Work from Hunter College School of S. W.


Pastor Fonner’s focus is moving the congregation he serves, Nairobi International Lutheran Congregation (NILC), toward self-sufficiency. He is working to transition the congregation from foreign missionary leadership to local leadership. Leslie Weed-Fonner, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with training in child therapy and trauma treatment, provides counseling services to girls at Pangani Luther Children’s Center (PLCC). The center houses girls, unable to live with their parents because of difficult circumstances.
