Meet Pastor Julius and Lady Almeta Trawick
“A man with a love for people.”
These are quotes that have been used to express the character of Pastor Julius Trawick and his
approach to teaching and preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
Julius Trawick was born on September 5, 1970, in Milledgeville, GA. He is the oldest son of
Nathaniel Trawick, Jr and Ella Trawick. At the early age of 12, he accepted Jesus Christ as his
Lord and Savior and joined Hunt’s Chapel AME church in Sparta, GA.
He is blessed to be married to the love of his life and best friend, Almeta Trawick. From this
Godly union they are blessed with (2) children (Jakira & Ashton). Following the guidance of the
Lord, he along with his family joined Vaughn Chapel Missionary Baptist Church in Milledgeville,
GA. During this time, he used his gift of singing to help minister by serving in the Vaughn
Chapel Men’s and Senior choirs. He presented himself as a helpful servant in the church willing
to assist where needed. In January 2011, his servitude was recognized, and he was ordained a
Deacon… but God was just getting started!
On November 20, 2014, Deacon Trawick preached his initial sermon “God Has a Plan for You". In
May of 2016, Rev Trawick was ordained and installed as Pastor of William Grove Baptist Church
in Mitchell, GA.
After 5 ½ years of faithful service at William Grove, God moved dramatically in the life and
ministry of Pastor Trawick. In November of 2021, Pastor Trawick was called to Pastor ElBethel
Missionary Baptist Church in Milledgeville GA. Pastor Trawick has brought a more intentional
focus on biblical teaching, spirit-filled worship, youth & young adult development, and
community out-reach. Under his leadership ElBethel has experienced physical and spiritual
growth and has expanded it's reach and impact in the community through personal
relationships and various social media platforms.
Pastor Trawick is a gifted preacher and teacher who can make the Word of God plain and
understandable to all who hears it. It is Pastor Trawick’s mission to impact others through
biblical preaching and teaching…doing so with love, compassion, power, and clarity.
