Trey and Lea Ann Turner moved to Wisconsin in 2009 with the hopes of one day starting a church. Lea Ann Turner got an administration position at Midstate Technical College in July of that year. Having come from a pastorate in Texas, and with the support of that church and the Minnesota Wisconsin Baptist Convention, Trey worked to build relationships in the community. Volunteer service at various places led to serving a short time as the Executive Director of the Literacy Council of Wood County. Early in 2013 Trey was holding Bible studies and fostering the relationships which would be key for more formal relationships. He then approached the Kellner Moravian church and asked for cooperation in allowing this group to meet on Sunday nights in their building. The church allowed the Bible study to meet and continue to develop. September 2013 Church at Wazeecha began worship services, continuing to meet on Sunday nights until 2015. March 2014, the church constituted as a church under the Southern Baptist Convention and the Minnesota Wisconsin Baptist Convention. The last part of 2015, the Kellner Moravian Church allowed, now Church at Wazeecha, to meet on Sunday morning at a time different from them. They did not have small groups on campus. The Kellner Moravian Church ceased being a congregation December 2015. With the support of other Southern Baptists, Church at Wazeecha seeks to buy their first property and further develop as a congregation.
Trey is still a North American Mission Board church planter and active in the Southern Wisconsin Baptist Association of churches.
