Kurt Trempert was born and raised as a missionary kid in Quito, Ecuador. Upon graduation from high school he headed off to Toccoa Falls Bible College in northeastern Georgia where he played soccer and prepared for the ministry. After two years at Toccoa, Kurt drove across the country and transferred to Simpson Bible College in California. There he continued to play soccer and prepare for pastoral ministry.
While at Simpson College, Kurt met his future wife whom he married after graduation in 1991. They have 3 children. Kurt has coached all of his children as they all share Kurt’s passion for the game of soccer. One of Kurt’s greatest joys is playing soccer with his children and their friends.
Kurt entered pastoral ministry upon completion of college in 1991. He started as the Junior High Youth Director at a church in Redding, California. In 1993, he and his wife took a position as the associate pastor of a church in Fort Jones, California where he completed his ordination requirements and was ordained in 1996. He became the senior pastor of the same church in 1996 and served in that role for the next three years.
At the end of 1999, Kurt and Terasue took a position at HarvestDowntown located in downtown Colorado Springs where he continues to serve as the senior pastor. He and Terasue enjoy their children but are looking forward to the next stage of life as all their children move out of the house and new doors are opened for ministry.
Trempert became involved with Soccer Chaplains United in mid-2015. He serves as the Lead Chaplain for the Colorado Springs Switchbacks.
Kurt is currently ordained in the Christian and Missionary Alliance.
