At this meeting, three names were suggested for the new Church: Beacon, Triune and Triumph. The name Triumph was unanimously accepted.It rang clear that it gave hope for the struggles through which we were passing. Since the word triumph meant victory, the members decided to use "Victory" as a greeting and we adopted "Victory in Jesus" as the theme song for the new church.
Pastor James S. Hall, Jr. was elected as the Pastor of Triumph Baptist for life. After encouraging words from the ministers who attended, Pastor Hall gave an overview of the kind of ministries the Triumph Baptist Church would embrace. The emphasis was on evangelism (soul winning) and discipleship (training). He was very clear that he would not follow the traditional path that was typical of most established churches, but would search the Bible for biblical reasons for ministries that the church would carry on. At this meeting, persons for the Deacon and Trustee ministry were chosen. Appointments were made for three other heads of ministries such as Usher, Choir and superintendent of the church school.More
