Pastor Travis L. Baptist
Elder Travis L. Baptist is the founder and Senior Pastor of Sweet Anointing Ministries Church of God in Christ in Suisun, California. He is a native of Kankakee, Illinois, and is the youngest of nine children. From an early age it was evident that God had marked his life for a special work. At the tender age of eighteen years old, he accepted the Lord as his personal Savior and began to demonstrate his commitment to walk by faith when he relocated to California in 1991.
In 1995, Elder Baptist hears the clarion call to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ, and became ordained shortly thereafter. He is a multi-gifted, preacher, with the heart of a true shepherd and the spirit of an evangelist. His dynamic, unparallel teaching and preaching ability has enabled him to capture the hearts of men and women everywhere. God has truly anointed Elder Baptist and has placed a divine sanction upon him allowing him to tread over the devil. His greatest joy is seeing lives transformed through a life submitted to Jesus Christ.
Elder Baptist and his family were members of Glad Tidings Church of God in Christ, in Hayward, California, under the leadership of Bishop J.W. Macklin prior to accepting the Pastoral call. After much prayer and counsel, with the blessings of Bishop J.W. Macklin, Elder Baptist founded the Sweet Anointing Ministries Church of God in Christ. His church held their first Service on January 3, 2010.
Elder Baptist is happily married to Mrs. Rebecca Baptist, who serves as the Director of their Women’s Ministry. They are the parents of three sons, one daughter, and two grandchildren.
