Trevor Kunze has dreamed of starting an outdoor ministry ever since his days working as a camp counselor at Camp Luther in northern Wisconsin. After his camp counseling days, Trevor graduated with a degree in lay ministry and theology from Concordia Wisconsin and accepted a call as a youth minister at Our Savior Lutheran Church, in Arcadia, California. A few years later, he accepted another call to serve as youth minister to St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in Wausau, WI.
During his time as a youth minister, the dream of starting an outdoor ministry stuck with him and he often shared it with others. The more he shared it, the more he realized that it was more than just a dream. While at St. Marks, he felt a calling from God to pursue turning his dream of planting an outdoor ministry into a reality. After a few months of praying and asking God for guidance, it was more clear than ever that now was the time.
In response to this new call on his life, Trevor hit the ground running and began searching for the right location to plant this new ministry. He knew it needed to be a growing area where he could reach youth, families, and businesses, and a place where he could see himself putting down roots over the next 30+ years. He settled on the front range of Northern Colorado and never looked back.
During this time, Kaitlin Kunze and Caleb Kunze joined the Three Trees ministry team. Trevor and Kaitlin (his wife) moved to Colorado in May of 2019. Over the next year and a half, Trevor led the team to lay the ground work for what would become Three Trees Outdoor Ministry. As of October 1st, 2020 Three Trees became an official nonprofit organization.
