Rev. Julius A. Beasley
Pastor Julius A. Beasley is a dedicated servant of God, deeply devoted to his calling from heaven to love, lead and feed God’s people at East Trigg Baptist Church. He maintains the conviction that the highest calling and greatest privilege on earth is to serve our wonderful and amazing God.
Pastor Beasley was born and raised in Laurens, South Carolina to Willie and Betty Beasley. After graduating from Laurens District 55 High School, he went on to further his education by receiving a BS in Sociology from the College of Charleston, Charleston, South Carolina. After college, God ordered his steps which led him to Memphis, TN where he joined the athletic, evangelistic outreach ministry called Spirit Express. This ministry utilized former college basketball players and the platform of basketball to play exhibition games at universities, colleges, military bases and prisons to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Pastor Beasley humbly received and accepted his calling into ministry as a preacher in 1991. He would go on to be ordained in 1993 under the leadership of Pastor Ralph White, Bloomfield Baptist Church, Memphis, Tennessee where he served as an associate minister and in the youth ministry for several years.
After receiving additional education and training from Memphis Theological Seminary (Memphis, Tennessee), he gratefully received the assignment from God to become the Pastor of East Trigg Ave. Baptist Church in 2004.

To God be all the glory!!!!!!!
