Pastors and Staff
Daniel and his wife, Joy, are committed to serving the Lord faithfully in every aspect of their lives. Both were saved at a young age and they endeavor to continue their service in full time ministry.
He received his bachelors degree in Bible from Pensacola Christian College, his masters in Pastoral Counseling and then his Doctorate in Biblical Counseling from Andersonville Theological Seminary.
Daniel and Joy also spent four years on the mission field in Africa as church planters. During his time in Africa, in the country of Mozambique, a 16-foot crocodile attacked Daniel. Through many providential helps from God, he not only escaped death, but also found God’s grace more than sufficient. The crocodile attack resulted in people immediately coming to Christ, but also transformed his passion for service.
It is this same passion and desire for the name of God to be exalted that drives Daniel and Joy in their service here at Trinity. Daniel was called to be the senior pastor of Trinity Baptist Church in 2014. Daniel and Joy love the people of Trinity and feel privileged to serve the Lord here in Westfield, Indiana.
God has greatly blessed Daniel and Joy with four beautiful children: Abigail, Katherine, Karina, and Titus. They are seeking to bring up their children in a godly home and desiring to train their children to be obedient and loving disciples of Christ.
Dan and his wife, Rhonda, were married in 2003 and have been blessed with 5 kids. Being raised in Christian homes, both Dan and Rhonda have been involved in church ministry for most of their lives. Dan and Rhonda have been serving together in ministry since 2004.
While pursuing a Masters degree in Pastoral Theology, Dan started his first pastorate at the age of 23 and pastored that church for 14 years. After leaving that ministry, the Hesters made their way to the Indianapolis area to serve in a support role for smaller ministries in the Midwest. In August of 2020, Dan was called to serve as the Associate Pastor here at Trinity. The Hesters have enjoyed their time here in Westfield and are looking forward to continuing the effort of Trinity to reach this community and the world with the truths of God’s Word!
Pastor Jacob Perry and his wife, Allyson, have been attending Trinity since February of 2016, after moving from Nashville, Tennessee to Westfield. Initially, they were just congregants who were looking to serve the Lord alongside the other wonderful members of Trinity. Eventually, Jacob went on to serve as a deacon in the church and took over as interim youth leader when Trinity’s former youth pastor left to pursue other ministry opportunities. Realizing that God had been working in his heart for several years, Jacob finally surrendered to the call of full time ministry. He officially started as youth pastor for Trinity Teens in September of 2021. Both Jacob and Allyson are excited to serve the youth of Trinity Baptist and partner with them in discipleship and making the Gospel of Christ the focal point of their lives.
Director of Music Ministries
Blair and his wife, Emily, joined Trinity in 2012. Both of them were saved at young ages, and the Lord led them to Bible college where they met as students while growing in their walk with the Lord. Married since 2002, God has allowed them to assist in a number of churches in North Carolina and Indiana. The Lord brought them to TBC with a desire to use their individual gifts to serve the Lord in a smaller church setting.
A love of music was initially planted when Blair traveled around the NY/NJ metro area performing sacred concerts with his family. Blair initially joined the choir at TBC just to sing but shortly thereafter, the former choir director asked Blair to step in when he moved. A year later, the congregational song leader moved on to another ministry allowing Blair to shoulder this responsibility as well. While he enjoyed the dual role of choir and congregational song leading, his full-time job as physical therapist demanded more time. Therefore, in 2019, he transferred the choir directing to another musically educated church member allowing time to focus on overseeing the music ministry at TBC as a whole including: congregational singing, adult choir, children's choir, special music, and orchestra. Blair also serves as a deacon when called upon. Emily has assisted in a variety of ministries, including choir, nursery, ministry meals, etc.
When not waving his hands in front of the congregation, he and his wife are rearing two young men and enjoy camping, hiking, soccer, and have recently started a Christmas tree farm in Atlanta, Indiana. They look forward to continuing to serve the Lord in whatever capacity He has for them in the coming years.
