Founding Pastors

Joe and Nancy Martin

Joe and Nancy Martin are the founders and senior ministers at C3 Trinity Dallas. After graduating from the University of Mississippi in 1981, Pastor Joe moved to Dallas to work in the oil and gas business.  In 1983, he asked Christ into his heart and committed his life to serve the Lord.  He met Nancy, then a recent Texas Tech grad, and they were married in April, 1985. Shortly thereafter, they began serving in full-time ministry.  In 1995, their passion for the city of Dallas led them to start C3 Trinity Dallas, a young, vibrant, multi-racial church in the Uptown/Park Cities area of Dallas.

Joe and Nancy have two children, a daughter-in-law, a son-in-law, and four grandchildren.  Their daughter, Landen Tillery lives and works in Dallas.  She is an executive in the Internet marketing business.  She is married to Tyler and have a daughter Kamryn.  Their son Joe III, is an entrepreneur and runs his own business.  He is married to MC (Mary Catherine) and they have three daughters: Sadie Bray, Sawyer, and Birdie.

Pastor Joe and Nancy are a powerful team with a desire to see people living at their fullest potential and advancing the kingdom of God. They are committed to leading a life-giving church that impacts our city and reflects heaven here on earth.
