Trea and his bride, Cayla, have three beautiful girls, Rilynne, Raegan and Reece, and a handsome son, River. Trea and Cayla met in Raleigh-Durham while Trea was attending SEBTS and serving as a local College and Singles Pastor. One of Trea’s college students invited her friend to church…the rest is history. The two became friends and three years later were saying ‘I do’.

Cayla and Trea moved to Valdosta, Ga to start Valdosta State Universities Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Trea perviously served at The University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill with the Baptist Campus Ministry. They have a huge passion for college students and were thrilled to move to Valdosta State. There, they witnessed the Lord move in a mighty ways. Through the work of God, VSU FCA grew to over 300 students in athletes in its first three years. This growth led their pastor to challenge them to consider planting a church.

Less than a year later, Trea and Cayla (now with Rilynne and Raegan) surrendered to the call of planting a church. After much prayer, Trea and Cayla moved back to North Carolina to plant Restoration Church in Wake Forest, NC. Restoration Church is a part of the Summit Network, one of two sending churches: Crosspointe Church (Valdosta, GA) and Summit Church (Raleigh-Durham, NC).
