- Witnessing to the Promise
- Nurturing Faith
- Engaging in Mission
- Working for Justice and Peace
These action statements identify the core purpose of Trinity Presbyterian Women (“TPW”), a viable association of Trinity members and friends. Each woman at Trinity is a part of our organization and encouraged to participate in one of our small groups.
The traditional structure of TPW centers around the “Circle” – a monthly gathering of women. Our primary objectives at Circle include enriching Bible study and prayer. Brief reports are given regarding business and mission projects. Circle is also a time of warm fellowship.

TPW Board of Officers
TPW is led by officers that provide the guidance for the activities of the Circle groups, including mission projects, benevolence distributions, and social events. Each term is two years, staggering so that about half of the Board is rotating into their second year when the new officers come on-board. The TPW year runs from September through May, though the Board typically meets once in August as well. Each meeting begins with prayer and devotions before moving into business. Currently Virginia Kozak is the Moderator and available to address any questions regarding TPW. Other officers include Brenda Miller (Treasurer), Mardi Crosser (Membership), Jan Larsen and Sandy Koukola, Moderator Emerita.
History & Structure of Presbyterian Women
The HERITAGE of PW within our congregation is a long and admirable one. Its legacy traces back to the early 1800’s, when the predecessor organizations met with goals of aiding missionaries through donations, prayer and personnel. The courageous women in earlier generations moved in the forefront of national events, advocating rights and better conditions for women and children, American minorities, the poor, and immigrants. Advocacy within these areas remains a cornerstone of PW today.
Trinity has had Circle gatherings since the very first days in 1958 when we were yet a missionary church to Harvey Browne Presbyterian Church.
TPW is part of a consortium within our denomination with a membership of more than 300,000. PW is organized at all levels of the PC/USA. For us, that means we are part the PW of Mid-Kentucky Presbytery, which in turn is part of the PW Synod of Living Waters before rolling up into the churchwide “Presbyterian Women”.
