Rev. Tribble took his first pastorate at Marshallville Baptist Church where he served for six and half years. He then became pastor of First Baptist Social Circle, GA for the next 27 years. After retiring he held many interims, serving more than 12 churches over the next 19 years. Rev. Tribble received an honorary doctorate degree from the International Bible Institute and Seminary and was Pastor Emeritus at Social Circle First Baptist. Many knew him around the area through his teaching at the Georgia Extension Program during 20 year on staff and served on the Georgia Baptist Conventionâ??s Executive Committee and Vice Chairman of the Administration Committee for several terms. Preaching and teaching in Japan and Hong Kong was a highlight of his career.
Preacher Tribble was loved by many for his kind and compassionate heart. When asked what it took to stay at one church for so many years he replied, “Just Love Them.”
