They began attending Trinity Church three years ago where they knew they had found “home” after the first service.

Reagan Elkins serves as Trinity’s music, youth, and multimedia minister. He has a passion for leading God’s people in worship, and to teach students the word of God without “dumbing-down” the content. He and his wife Madison are both professional musicians and have recorded in Nashville, TN, and have also toured the state of Oklahoma with their band, Jenkins Valley.
Reagan earned an A.A. degree in Film and Video Productions from OCCC, and a B.A. degree in History from USAO. In Spring of 2014 he directed a documentary entitled, “The Diminished Church,” which explains a few reasons why youth are leaving the church in America. Reagan desires to eventually continue his education in the fields of Christian apologetics and film directing.
