Today we recognize and celebrate our High School and College Graduates! What a wonderful season of life to close one chapter and begin another. We know that God has great plans for each of these students and we are grateful to be a part of their lives!

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” Jeremiah 29:11

This week we celebrate 50 years of the Land of the Sky Jubilee.  It is hard to           believe 50 years has passed so quickly.

The Jubilee has been a spiritual refreshing for Christians and encouragement for churches all over the southern United States.

This week we have celebrated with songs, scripture, family, friends and food.  It was a wonderful week making memories!

Almost 53 years ago Maze Jackson hosted the Jubilee in   Atlanta, Georgia. That church was unable to continue being the host, so Pastor Ralph Sexton, Sr. offered to host the Jubilee at Trinity Baptist in Asheville.  That was 50 years ago!

During this wonderful week God has used our church to bless others again. “Thank you”, volunteers, for your hours of hard work. 

From the parking lots to the family choir, from the teen meals at night to the hot meals for lunch, from the prayer teams to the media department, God has used you all to bless others.  Thank you for praying and thank you for giving!

What a joy to work together and to be able to worship                 together.  May God keep us faithful for the future!

You are loved, 

Pastor Ralph / John 3:30

Rescue Asheville! Through the vision and burden of our young people, God has refocused our church to make an impact in our city with the message of Jesus.  This vision and burden has spread to other youth and churches in our community.


God is raising up a generation that desires the anointing of God upon their lives more than anything else!  Let’s join the rescue vision for our family, friends and community.


As a church we must be Ready for the rescue,

Established in the word of God,

Separated from the world,

Committed to our calling,

Understand the need,

and know Jesus is Enough for every situation.


Thank you to all the Pastors and Youth Pastors from our community who has joined us in this Vision.  May we see lives radically changed in the beautiful, wonderful, and powerful name of Jesus! Thank you for joining us for the community youth service, Sunday Night in the Sanctuary of Trinity Baptist Church.
