Minister of Music

Mark Warren

Mark has served as Trinity's Minister of Music since January 1993.  "My mission is to lead the believers of the Lord Jesus Christ to worship Him in spirit and in truth and to bring the unbeliever into His presence by the worship of Him through the saints and to glorify the Father which is in heaven,"  says Mark.

Mark was raised in a Christian home as the son of Carl & Sara Warren.  His father Carl was also a music minister.  Bro. Mark walked the aisle of First Baptist Church, New Hope, Alabama, at age eight, but was 27 years old before truly accepting Christ as his Savior.  He found that "old things pass away and all things become new."  The Lord then called him into the ministry, allowing him to lead in worship through song.

Mark graduated from New Hope High School in 1980, then attended Northeast Alabama Community College and the University of North Alabama.  He is currently working with Harbin Ford.

Mark is married to the former Kim Collins.  Kim is the organist at Trinity.  Their son, is Collin.

Youth Minister

Jeff Tubbs

I was born and raised in Scottsboro. I graduated from Scottsboro High School in 1994. I attended NACC before transferring to Athens State University where I earned a Bachelors Degree in Secondary Education Math. After teaching in Jackson County for a few years I earned my Masters Degree in Educational Leadership from Jacksonville State University. After that I had the opportunity to return home and teach math at Scottsboro Junior High School. I currently have the privilege of serving as the assistant principal at SJHS. 

 

My ministry began at Trinity Baptist Church in 2011. I have had the opportunity to serve as the youth leader in the church home where I grew up. God has provided my students at Trinity the opportunity to grow in spirit and in discipleship. God continues to amaze me and work in the lives of the youth. Its exciting to know that he is using them to minister to others as well.
