    lead Pastor

    Rachel and I are so grateful to be leading such an awesome group of people. I have served in several capacities here at CT over the past 22 years. At present, I have the privilege of serving as Lead Pastor. I can't believe I've been doing this for 10 years. Our heart is to see people take the Word that is taught to them, apply it to their lives & find their lives transformed. In turn, they can then help others grow in their faith. Lives changed by the truth of the Gospel is what it's all about!

  • Greg Phillips

    Elder & Youth Pastor

    We are Greg and Crystal Phillips, youth pastors at Church T. We came to Church Triumphant 6 years ago as an exhausted and burnt out couple. From the minute we walked in the doors, we were loved for who we were. We were allowed to rest, yet pushed to be even more for the Kingdom of God. We love the people that we do life with here at Church T. As Pastor Aaron frequently says, “Circles are better than rows.” We have found that to be true!

    Children's Pastor

    We are the Lemaster's, Buddy and Mistee, and we are the Children's Pastors here at Church T. We have been attending Church Triumphant together for over 15 years. We have both worked within the Children's church for many years and have watched a lot of the children go from nursery to Youth. We love to watch the growth of Jesus work in these kids each week as well as their families.    Reaching Families is our goal.

  • Mike HInes

    elder

    Jen and I have been at CT for 20 years and have served as small group leaders for most of our time at CT. I can't believe that Jen and I have been here that long. I currently serve on the elder team by overseeing the facilities ministry. We love serving God and His people anyway we can. This such a good place to serve the Lord!

  • Nancy Carter

    business ADMINISTER

    I am the Business Administrator at Church Triumphant. I have attended Church Triumphant most of my life. I have had the opportunity to serve in several different ministries over the years. I have seen many changes; people come and go while others remained and the church change in appearance and name. One thing has never changed, though—God’s awesome love, mercy and power. I am thankful God planted me at Church T and desire to see others come to know God’s great love and see lives transformed.
