David Gough - Senior Pastor
"PG" has been the senior pastor of Temple Hills Baptist Church since January 2007, having previously served on church staffs and as an interim pastor with several local churches. Following degrees earned at Washington Bible College, Dallas Theological Seminary, and the University of Virginia, he was a Bible college professor for 25 years.
He believes and preaches the doctrines of sovereign grace, and his primary goals in ministry are to declare God's inerrant word and to develop Christ-honoring and Bible-loving church members. A former high school and college baseball coach, he remains an avid fan of the Washington Nationals and the Virginia Cavaliers. He is married to Terry, his high school sweetheart, and they have two children and four grandchildren.
He is driven by the Lord's charge to "Fulfill the ministry that you have received in the Lord" (Colossians 4:17).
Tyrell Samuels - Lay Elder
Tyrell grew up in Washington, DC and has lived either in DC or the suburbs of DC his entire life. Through a period of intense mental anguish and panic attacks, at the age of 16, the Lord delivered Tyrell from worshipping idols to worship the true and living God.
Tyrell currently serves THBC as its lone non-staff elder. When not busy doing super secret stuff for the government, Tyrell enjoys studying theology, counseling the broken and gardening. Tyrell is helped by his dear wife of 7 years Marie-Marthe Samuels who is a homemaker and they have three children: Azariah, 6; Hannah, 4; and Sarah, 2.
