Student Pastor

Pastor Trey & Jennifer Llewallyn

I was born and raised in Athens, GA...

GO DAWGS!!!


Growing up I attended my grandfather, Howard Conine's, church, New Covenant Worship Center. My wife Jennifer was born in Louisiana but was raised in Lula, GA from the time she was around 6 weeks old. Growing up she attended Assembly of Praise in Lula. We have been involved in student ministry in some capacity of leadership/pastoring for 20+ years and have been married since 2011. We have 2 athletic boys and one little princess.


FAITH, FAMILY & FOOTBALL.

We do engage in other sports but football is our favorite. Most evenings you can find us on a football or baseball field. Pretty soon we will be adding gymnastics to the mix.

Our passion is and always has been student ministry. My love for student ministry and football collide with the football team at East Hall, as I volunteer through FCA, as their team Pastor/Character Coach. I am also the team pastor for the wrestling team this year.

We are called to fulfill the Great Commission.


We want to see students of every race, economic status, and social class to not only come to know Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior, but we want to disciple them and help them to step into their calling. We are training up a  generation of World Changers in a world that needs changing.

We are excited to see God's plan unfold in each student’s life individually and corporately.

 “I don’t sing because I’m happy...I’m happy because I sing!”

Favorite Scriptures

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.
