Message from the Pastor
Welcome to Blythewood Baptist Church, please take a moment to browse through our website and discover a church that believes the Word of God is key to living the abundant Christian life. Here you will find a church that enthusiastically still sings the timeless hymns of the faith. You'll find a place where the Word of God is preached, where we reach out to our Blythewood community, and where we encourage every believer to grow in faith and love towards God. It is my privilege to serve as the pastor of such a friendly and loving church. We would be honored to have you visit with us this Sunday. Come and grow with us!
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 as a sergeant for four years of duty. He attended Berry College, graduating with a B.S. Chem/Bio. Degree, followed by Bible/Missions 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 24 years, the last 13 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.
