Our Pastor

Pastor Horst Trojahn immigrated to America with his parents and two brothers in 1957 from Germany. In 1971, he joined the United States Marine Corps and served for four years. He was gloriously saved while serving in Camp Lejeune, NC. He went on to attend Berry College, graduating with a B.S. degree in Chemistry. After feeling the call to serve the Lord full-time,  he enrolled and completed Pastoral graduate studies. Pastor Horst and his wife Joy met at Berry College and were married in 1980. They have two children, Heather and Jonathan. Heather married Jacob in 2013, and Jonathan and Elizabeth married in 2014. Pastor Horst & Joy have faithfully served the Lord here in Blythewood for  26 years, the last 15 of which have been full-time.

As pastor of Blythewood Baptist Church, I desire to be the servant of the Lord in II Timothy 2:24-26. “And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

Come visit us!! We are “Holding forth the Word of Life…” Philippians 2:16.
