Jerry Parmentier

Family Pastor

Jerry and his family moved to Lake Charles in 2014, to serve as the Children’s Minister. He has been in ministry since 2001, some of those years were in a bi-vocational role in children’s ministry. In 2010, Jerry surrendered to full-time ministry and has had a blast serving in the local church and seeing Jesus do amazing things in the  lives of children and families. At the age of 7, Jerry entered into a relationship with Jesus and that has been the single most important decision of his life. He made my decision public at age 9 and was baptized.

Jerry and his wife, Shannon, met in middle school and were best friends throughout school. They dated through high school and college and have been married for 24 years. They love to travel either to the mountains of Colorado, beaches along the Gulf Coast or cruise the open waters wherever Carnival takes them. They have six children (Chase, Harley, Jenna, Jaelee, Liam, and Ruthie) that call them Mom and Dad and have given many real-life experiences to  Jerry’s role as a pastor.

Their oldest son, Chase, is married to Haley and lives in the Lake Area. Both serve in education in the parish.  

Harley, their oldest daughter, is to be married to Ethan, in late 2022.  Harley is a stylist at one of the local salons and serves in kids ministry at Trinity on the worship team.

Jenna is studying at McNeese State University to become a doctor and loves to go on mission to make Jesus known to others.  

Their three littles, Jaelee, Liam, and Ruthie love Jesus and are growing in their understanding of who Jesus is and how they can be world changers.  

The Parmentiers are excited about what God is doing at Trinity and thankful to be part of the Trinity family!  They love that Jesus placed them here for this moment and believe the best days are ahead.
