History
Trinity Baptist Tabernacle was organized by Rev. Glenn Davis on November 21, 1982. He began having services in his home in the Willows Subdivision in January 1982 with 17 charter members. The church moved into the Jaycee building on August 15, 1982 for a brief period before moving to the Old Theater building in January 1983 where it would reside for the next 22 years. On November 27, 1983, Rev. Glenn Davis resigned as pastor, and on December 4, 1983, Rev. Randy Ouzts was called unanimously as pastor.  At this time the membership stood at 11 people. Six of those 11 were Rev. Ouzts and his family. The Lord blessed, and the church steadily grew as the years passed. In October of 1984, the annual fish fry was started.  This was a time when the church would come together in fellowship and eat the fish that were caught during the summer months.  This tradition continues still today. The first Homecoming was held November 3, 1985 with the founding Pastor, Bro. Glenn Davis, preaching the morning service. The Lord blessed over the years and the current church building at 910 Sweetwater Rd. was built. The first service was held on October 2, 2005. On November 28, 2010, after 27 years of pastoring, Rev. Randy Ouzts resigned as pastor of the church. Bro. Randy still resides as a faithful member of the church and now serves as Chaplin at the Faith Home here in Greenwood. Rev. Randy Ouzts, Rev. Phil Dyar, and Rev. Joe Chapman all served as interim pastors as the congregation sought the Lord’s will concerning a permanent pastor. The Lord answered, and Rev. Tony Pettit was called by a unanimous vote on April 21, 2013. We are thankful for what the Lord has done, and we are looking forward to what He is going to do at Trinity Baptist Tabernacle.
