Our Leadership

The Leadership of the Trenton Church of Christ

Scripture is filled with examples of God choosing leaders for His people. The leadership of the Trenton Church of Christ is based on the pattern laid out by God in the Bible.

Spiritual Shepherds

We are led by three spiritual shepherds—men chosen by the congregation to lead based on their age, life experience, and the type of character God has indicated in the Scriptures. These men do not run the church but instead make decisions as a group based on the wisdom and knowledge of God’s word they have gained through lives of service to God. Our shepherds are:



John Frazier - Freddie Summers - Ken Anguish





Five deacons aid the shepherds—men chose to fill various roles based on their scriptural qualifications, abilities, and willingness to work.  

Our deacons are:


        Seth Hastings                                          Seth Maurer                                             Bruce McElroy                       


                   Chris Dunn                                                       Ronnie Beach

  • TRAINING AND EDUCATION: Chris Dunn & Seth Maurer
  • FACILITIES: Ronnie Beach & Bruce McElroy
  • EVANGELISM: Seth Hastings
  • TREASURER: Seth Hastings



The church at Trenton financially supports a full-time evangelist, Everritt Heaton, and his family.

Our evangelist presents Bible-based lessons each week from the pulpit, in the classroom, and in private studies that instruct and lead our members and our community in Bible study.

Kent Heaton began working with the Trenton church family in November 2022. Kent is no stranger to the work in Trenton, as he began preaching full-time in Trenton in 1981. After 2 1/2 years, he and his wife Karen moved to Morriston, Florida; Taylors, South Carolina; Perry, Florida (Spring Warrior); Bulgaria; Valrico, Florida; returning to Trenton in 1994. After almost twenty years, Kent and Karen left Trenton and worked with churches in Valdosta, Georgia, and Brooksville, Florida. The shepherds invited Kent back in 2022 to work as a teacher.

His wife, Karen, is from Bell, Florida. They have four children (Susan & Bryan Fletcher; Everritt & Belinda Heaton; Kevin & Brittany Heaton; Sarah & Saif Alsafeer) and twelve grandchildren.

Kevin preaches for the church in Zephyrhills, Florida. Saif preaches for the Hwy 27 church in Lafayette, Georgia.
