It’s with overwhelming joy, excitement, and honor that we get to introduce to you Trevor DeVage.
UPDATED: May 4th, 2022
The other morning, I was reading scripture and was reminded of the one that says, “Be still and know that I am God.” As I read that, I laughed out loud. Why? Even in my stillness, it felt chaotic. Then God reminded me that I am to know him in the stillness and trust him in the chaos. He reminded me that he speaks in both and uses me in all moments. To say that we have been in a sprint to Tucson is the understatement of life right now. Yet, I cannot begin to tell you how excited we are to get our family to our new family there. In fact, here is a little bullet point life update. I would encourage you to read this as fast as you can, out loud, in one breath. It makes it more fun.
Whew…I am out of breath just typing that. Yet, in the midst of all of that, God is giving us moments. Moments of family. Moments of fun. Moments of laughter. Moments of breath. What has not changed in any of this transition time in life is that God still has us on mission and vision for the Kingdom. My chaos does not let me off the hook of bringing hope and redemption to others around me.
If you have been around Pantano at all, you know that we talk about the vision of each and every one of us reaching just one person far from God with the hope of Jesus. No matter the chaos of your life or my life, we are called to be hope dealers daily. Even in this transition from life in Ohio to life in Arizona God has called us to deal hope. In the transition of lead pastors at Pantano, God has called us to deal hope. In the transition of your daily life and the chaos this world can bring, you are called to deal hope. Let’s take the opportunity today to show a chaotic world a calming God.
Know that I pray daily for you, our church, and cannot wait to see you all each and every week very soon.
Here’s a bit more about Trevor. He went to college at Lincoln Christian University and completed his degree in preaching with a minor in youth ministry. He followed this up with a teaching degree from Wheaton College. During the next three years, he pursued his love of music playing as a drummer in a band. However, the Lord led him back to ministry—first youth ministry, then preaching, where he spent ten years serving at Compass Christian in Dallas, Texas. Trevor joined Christ’s Church (Mason, Ohio) as Lead Pastor in 2013.
Trevor is married to his wife, Laura, and has two daughters, Ella (senior in HS) and Natalie (freshman in HS). They enjoy the outdoors and this means lots of basketball and walks in the park. Trevor’s other passions are golf, music, photography, the arts, and the Florida Gators. His ultimate goal in life is “that it is evident that I’ve spent time with Jesus.”
Please begin to pray for the DeVage family as they begin their season of transition from Ohio to Tucson and to Pantano. Please continue to love our church as you have. Continue to serve as you have served in the past. Continue to give as you have given and please continue to pray for our church, Elders, and staff.
We are so excited for this new season for Pantano, and hope that you are too! If you have any questions about this process or about Trevor, feel free to reach out to us by clicking the button below.
