Trinity Church exists as an autonomous congregation, which means that no institution outside the church has authority over its affairs. Instead, the congregation governs itself under the leadership of a group of men called elders.
The elders share the primary responsibility for teaching, pastoral care, and decisions related to healthy church operation. Elders of the church should meet the personal qualifications described by Paul in 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1, and they must be set apart by the congregation to serve in this shepherding role. Trinity’s elders are Matt Givens, Bill Heerman, Seth Jones, Matt McCullough, and Shaka Mitchell.
Though Trinity is an autonomous Baptist congregation, we do enjoy a friendly partnership with the churches of the Southern Baptist Convention for international missions, church planting, education, disaster relief efforts, and care for the poor and orphans.
