Meet Trinity Chapel Assembly of God
Trinity Chapel was founded in 1965 by a handful of believers who felt led to start a congregation in the east end of Louisville, KY. From these humble beginnings in an elementary school, the church has grown to serve as a loving community to people of all backgrounds, reaching those of various generations, education levels, socio-economic classes, and ethnicities. We are blessed to learn from our differences and enthusiastically celebrate the Savior who unites us.
In the past 15 years, God’s miraculous provision has allowed us to renovate almost every area of our campus, including our sanctuary, children’s center, café, gym and office spaces. These top-notch resources have given us an avenue of outreach to elementary schools, community organizations, athletic groups, and local missions. Our goal is to show God’s love generously to all of the children, youth and adults that partner with Trinity Chapel.
Our congregation is built on the strength of committed individuals who serve Christ, our church and their communities with unrestrained devotion. We prayerfully wait for the person God has called to lead us in this new season, and we look forward to the fresh vision and challenging word that are to come.

Louisville today is home to dozens of companies and organizations across several industrial classifications. Louisville's importance to the shipping industry continues today with the presence of the Worldport global air-freight hub for UPS at Louisville International Airport. Louisville is a significant center of manufacturing, with two major Ford plants, and the headquarters and major home appliance factory of GE Appliances (a subsidiary of Haier).
