Eastminster Presbyterian


Hearts, Hands, Heads for Christ in Service and Celebration


Our pastor of 27 years has retired. We are in the process of calling a new pastor. This will take quite some time. We will have guest pastors and other speakers during this time.

"My role in the life of EPC is always busy, but I am so blessed to be a part of this church family and serve in the capacity in which I do.  I am honored to not only be on staff but to be a vital member of the congregation as well.  I believe that Eastminster has enriched my life personally and spiritually and I am so blessed to call Eastminster my home!”

Youth Director/Pastoral Assistant

Trey Fulkerson

Trey is a native of Evansville and has been a part of the Eastminster family his entire life.  After graduating from North High School in 2012, he officially united with Eastminster and was baptized in the faith.  Since Trey had spent many years involved in the Eastminster youth group and displayed great leadership skills, it seemed only natural that when the need arose in the fall of 2012 that he would become the part-time Youth Director. In September 2017 he became our full-time Youth Director/Pastoral Assistant.

Trey has studied French and German at the University of Southern Indiana and has visited friends in the Czech Republic several times.  In his free time he enjoys fitness and sports as well as spending as much time at the church with the youth group as possible.
