Our Team


serving God and You

The leadership here at Church T is comprised of men and women who love, care, and pray for you.  

We are committed to seeing you grow in Christ and we want to equip you to help others grow in

their faith as well. We are real people learning to become more like Christ everyday.

CT and Grace

Church Triumphant and Grace Fellowship Church are merging together to more effectively reach the lost and grow the Kingdom.  You will see leadership from both churches and events and groups for both churches on the CT pages.  We would love for you to join us at either our Kingston location (4496 St. Rt. 180) or our Chillicothe location (39 South Mulberry St.)

  • aaron & Rachel hines

    lead Pastor

    Rachel and I are so grateful to be leading such an awesome group of people. I have served in several capacities here at CT over the past 22 years. At present, I have the privilege of serving as Lead Pastor. I can't believe I've been doing this for 10 years. Our heart is to see people take the Word that is taught to them, apply it to their lives & find their lives transformed. In turn, they can then help others grow in their faith. Lives changed by the truth of the Gospel is what it's all about!

  • Greg & Crystal Phillips

    Elder, Discipleship Pastors & Youth Pastor

    We are Greg and Crystal Phillips, youth pastors at Church T. We came to Church Triumphant 8 years ago as an exhausted and burnt out couple. From the minute we walked in the doors, we were loved for who we were. We were allowed to rest, yet pushed to be even more for the Kingdom of God. We love the people that we do life with here at Church T. As Pastor Aaron frequently says, “Circles are better than rows.” We have found that to be true!

  • Dan Norman

    Deacon

    I have lived in Chillicothe since 1974 and was so blessed to have had my loving wife for 42 years before God took her home.  I have been in many leadership roles and I look to our Lord to lead me in ways to serve.  I am excited to see what unfolds in God's plan for our church family!  We need to praise God, seek God, worship God, trust God and thank God in every moment of our lives.

  • Mike & Jennifer HInes

    elder

    Jen and I have been at CT for 20 years and have served as small group leaders for most of our time at CT. I can't believe that Jen and I have been here that long. I currently serve on the elder team by overseeing the facilities ministry. We love serving God and His people anyway we can. This such a good place to serve the Lord!

  • Christian payne

    Youth Pastor

    A little bit about me!  I am a Chillicothe native who started attending Church Triumphant in September 2016 and it has been life-changing once I stepped through the doors.  I have been working with the Youth Ministry ever since I went on my first mission trip in July 2016.  I am passionate about food, mission work, and building relationships.  I am also an Early Childhood Education Major attending OUC.

  • Casey Millard

    youth pastor

    I love the group God has called me to severe. I would have never thought I would be serving the Lord or be serving Him in this capacity. I have served Jesus in many settings since 2004, from the mission field to the church. I would not have it any other way. I really enjoy and see it as a passion to connect with teens and point them to Jesus. My main focus is the relationship with the Creator and the rest will fall into place!!!

  • Ranelle Higginbotham

    business ADMINISTER

    I don’t know where my family would be without Church Triumphant. They have loved and supported us for over fourteen years now. They have watched my children grow and helped us walk through the death of my husband and their father. They have encouraged and challenged and cheered us on every step of the way. I’m excited to see what the future holds and how these big changes unfold. God has an amazing plans for this group of people!

  • Brandy huspen

    secretary

    This church has been my spiritual family since 2007.  I have been a part of Children's Ministry, small groups and recently (2020) serving as secretary. The people here have walked with me through many highs and lows of life.  They've been the hands and feet of Jesus to me from my kids' dedications and baptisms, to my wedding renewal and then the funeral of my late husband. They have helped me grow in my walk with Jesus and I am very grateful.   I pray I can help others grow closer to  Him as well.
