Meet our Pastor
Pastor Justin Payton Image Pastor - Justin Payton

I was born and raised in the Piedmont/Triad area of N.C. I accepted Christ as my Savior when I was 8yrs old and was baptized when I was 12 yrs old. I started my formal religious education two years out of high school because of the Lord's leading in my life during my high school years. I received my B.A. in Biblical Studies from Piedmont Baptist College in 2006, my M.Div. from Tyndale Theological Seminary in 2020, and I am pursuing my Ph.D. currently at Tyndale Theological Seminary. The Lord led my family and I to Trinity Baptist Church in November 2021, where I have accepted the position of Senior Pastor.
I love to study the Bible, talk theology, and understand the background, customs, and culture of the people in the Bible. I love to cook and I can play the guitar (mainly for my own pleasure). I studied Japanese Ju-jitsu for 13 years and received my black belt during that time. I still own my first car, a 1966 mustang, and have had it restored twice in that time!
