Rev. Karen Chraska, Associate Pastor of Worship Arts

Karen manages and directs all things centered around music at Trietsch. She has BAs in both Vocal Performance and Communication with a minor in Theater from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. She also has a Masters in Sacred Music from SMU. Karen is a member of the United Methodist Church 2020 Hymnal Committee, Choristers Guild, The Fellowship of United Methodist in Worship Music and Arts, and American Guild of Handbell Ringers.

She loves to sing and has a deep passion for using music to make a divine connection to God. When Karen isn’t singing, selecting music, or simply being a rock star, she spends time traveling, cooking, reading, working outside, and doing service projects. Don’t be surprised if she gives you a dozen eggs as a gift because she also keeps chickens as pets!

Rev. Dr. Nick McRae, Associate Pastor of Serving Ministries

Nick is a Provisional Elder in the United Methodist Church. He received a BA in English from the University of West Georgia (his home state), an MFA in Creative Writing from Ohio State University, and a PhD in English from the University of North Texas. Though he had planned for a career as a college professor, Nick discerned a call to ordained ministry while completing his doctoral work. He then attended Perkins School of Theology at SMU, where he received a Master of Divinity degree. Before being appointed to Trietsch as Associate Pastor of Serving Ministries, Nick served the First United Methodist Church of Sachse, TX, as an associate pastor.

Nick’s great passion is the reading, teaching, and proclamation of God’s Holy Word. He also loves studying the Biblical Hebrew language, writing poetry, and playing music (primarily guitar). Nick is an avid collector of fine, unique, or otherwise interesting Bibles. He and his wife Annie live in Flower Mound and are expecting their first children—twin girls!
