    Bro. T.J.’s favorite verse of Scripture is Galatians 2:20, “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” Laura’s favorite verse of Scripture is I Timothy 1:12, “And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry.”


    Their goal in the ministry is to lead an active and exciting youth ministry in which teenagers are transformed by the saving power of Jesus Christ, and trained to be His life-long disciples.

  • Earl Permenter
    Earl Permenter
    Minister of Maintenance

    Bro. Earl has been attending services at Trinity since he was an infant. At the age of 14, he accepted Christ as his Savior during a Sunday morning salvation message preached by Dr. Claude Craven. Bro. Earl was baptized that night. His wife Natalie was saved at the age of 9 at a church in Arizona, but had never been scripturally baptized. And so, on Earl and Natalie’s first “church date” at Trinity, Natalie was baptized by Dr. Craven in the evening service.


    Earl and Natalie were later married at Trinity. Several years later, they were blessed of God to have a son, Nathaniel. Nathan was also saved and baptized at the age of 5. Bro. Earl was hired by Dr. Craven in August of 1990. He has grown to love his job and church family more each year.


    One of his favorite verses of scripture is Ephesians 4:32 “And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.”
