He is a proud graduate of Hutto High School (Go Hippos!), from which he went out to continue his education at Blinn College; however, in July 2012 Trey sensed the Lord calling him to a life of service in full-time ministry. Shortly after, he transferred to Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, IL. and moved back to Hutto upon graduation. In January of 2017 Trey crossed paths with the most beautiful girl in the world, Kristin Taylor, and he mustered up the courage to finally ask her out a couple of months later. In July of 2018 she changed her name to Kristin Dove, as Trey and Kristin joined one another in marriage. Things got even sweeter when they welcomed their precious girl, Taya Dove, into their family. Some of Trey’s favorite things include: spending time with Kristin and Taya, drinking too much coffee, reading, watching movies, and eating good food… but especially donuts.
Trey moved back to Hutto where he joined the staff of Hutto Bible Church in May of 2016 as Student Ministry Pastor, and now serves as Pastor over Spiritual Formation. Trey and Kristin love being a part of Hutto Bible Church and their desire is to serve this community as long as they can, with as much as they have to give, and with as much faith as the Lord will provide.
