TGMBC History


Trinity Grove Missionary Baptist Church was established in 1913 by charter members Rev. M. Brownlee, Sis. Mary Brownlee, Bro. Fred Gaffney, Sis. Vinna Jordan, and Bro. Ison Jordan. in North Little Rock, Arkansas. The church's first pastor was Rev. Jimmy Johnson. His leadership was followed by several pastors, including Rev. Doyle, under whose leadership a new building was erected and the membership was greatly increased. Under succeeding Rev. C.N. Ford, the present-day church located at 14208 Old Maumelle Road was erected, but not completed.

Trinity Grove continued on under the leadership of Rev. A. Jones and later, Rev. John L. Taylor, Jr. Under Rev. Taylor, the new church was completed with the addition of a number of classrooms, a baptismal pool, a kitchen, and other needed facilities. Trinity Grove continued to grow spiritually and financially under the leadership of Pastor Melvin Williams, and later, Pastor Artee Williams, and Pastor Carl Jackson.

The church has continued its growth, with the addition of the Children's Church and the Board of Christian Education. Today, every church member can stand and proudly say:

I love thou church O' God, Her walls before the stand,

For Her tears shall fall, For Her prayers ascend.


I love thou church O' God, thee house of thine abode,

The church our blessed Redeemer saved, with His own precious blood.
