Meet Pastor Troy

Troy Knight is the founding and lead pastor of Generations Church. He and his wife, Tabitha, launched Generations Church in 2005 with several other families in the Southport area. He grew up in Jasper, TX, and played college football at Lamar University in Beaumont, TX. He earned his Master's in Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

When Troy is not leading Generations Church he loves to read, travels with his family, plays golf, and tinkers with all things BBQ. He owns the Southport and Leland Smoke House where he practices quality control by sampling the brisket and ribs. He's also a frustrated Dallas Cowboys fan who believes they might win the big game one more time before Jesus returns.

Troy and Tabitha who recently celebrated their 25th anniversary have two children. Their son Cameron lives in Wilson, NC, and works in the timber industry and their daughter Carly attends Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA.
