Originally called as Associate Pastor at the Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd after working at the church for several years as student, administrator, and vicar, she has now accepted another call to "Gracia" (Grace) Lutheran Church in Mexico City.

Angela Trejo is married to Rev. Dr. Moisés Pérez, who serves as Dean of the Theological Community. She was ordained with Seminary graduates Sofía Tenorio and María Elena Ortega in 2009.  In 2011, Angela was named Coordinator of Augsburg Lutheran Seminary. I work closely with Angela at the Seminary, especially in the online course program we have there.  She teaches not only at the Seminary, where she became the first woman professor the Seminary had, but at the Theological Community as well in the areas of history, biblical studies, and Lutheran studies.
