Join us for a time to refresh your relationship with God, grow in your gifting, and realign your ministry


Get away and invest time in your personal walk with the Lord. Your ministry to others will only be as healthy as your own relationship with God. Take time to be refreshed.


Burnout can dull the vision that God gave you when He first called you to serve in ministry. Take a step back and see your ministry again with eyes of expectant faith.


Don’t settle for a comfortable ministry if the Lord is opening new doors. Take opportunities to grow in your gifting, your leadership, and your service.


Spend time with other church leaders who are facing the same joys and challenges of serving in ministry. Share what God is doing in your lives and churches and be encouraged.

Speaker: Tom Messer & Tommy Kiedis


A native of Northfield, Massachusetts, Tom Messer relocated to Watertown, Wisconsin where he studied and received his degree from Maranatha Baptist Bible College. Following his graduation in 1982, he moved to Jacksonville where he began teaching and ministering at Trinity Baptist College.

In November of 1991 Pastor Messer assumed the duties of an Associate Pastor of Trinity Baptist Church.  Then in December of 1992 he was called as Senior Pastor of the church and began oversight of a large and growing ministry, which includes Trinity Baptist College, Trinity Christian Academy, Trinity Rescue Mission and Women and Children’s Center, Trinity Freedom Farm, and Trinity Youth Camp.

In 2014 the church expanded its outreach by planting a second campus in the Oakleaf community of Jacksonville. Pastor Messer is committed to Biblical preaching, gospel centered ministry, and a passion for world evangelism.

He and his wife Lisa were married in 1982. They have four children, Drew, Christie, Michael, and Jacob. Their daughter Christie and son-in-law, Patrick, have one child, Tripp.

Tommy loves to help leaders maximize and multiply their lives and leadership.

He and his wife, Shannan, have been married thirty-seven years and have six adult children (all married) and twenty grandchildren. Tommy and Shannan enjoy reading, family time, traveling, and Shannan graciously puts up with his love of hot rods.

Prior to his work at SRC, Tommy served as Dean of the Chapel and Assistant Professor of Ministry at Palm Beach Atlantic University.
