Bill Mason 
Senior Pastor
Chattanooga has been my home since I was born. I probably know your Mom and Dad, grandparents or aunt and uncle.

I married my high school sweetheart, Beth Walker Mason, in 1975. We are both graduates of Chattanooga Central High School and the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.

Morris Hill is my second pastorate since my ordination in 1983.  I have been pastor of Morris Hill Baptist since 1994. Longevity at a church is one of my core values and I believe it is not only important for a pastor, but also for the church.

My preaching style is simple so that everyone can understand. I enjoy verse-by-verse preaching of God’s Word.  His Word reveals Himself to us, so I don’t want to leave anything out.

My desire is to finish well in the ministry; to bring honor to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. 

James Click
Associate Pastor & Education
I am originally from Scottsboro, AL. Before being called into vocational ministry, I worked for 8 years as a Lineman with the Scottsboro Electric Power Board.

In 2003, my family and I moved to Wake Forest, NC where I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies from Southeastern College at Wake Forest.

I then attended Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary where I acquired a Master of Divinity with Pastoral Ministry and Biblical Languages with a minor in Preaching/Communication.

 My family and I now reside in Chattanooga, TN. I am currently serving as the Associate Pastor and my other responsibilities include Education, Administration, and Outreach. I have been on staff since October of 2008. Kristy, my wife, and I have been married since 1993 and have one daughter, Briana. My desire is to glorify and advance the Kingdom of God by proclaiming the Word of God, and equipping the Body of Christ to work side by side for the faith of the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. (Phil 1:27) To live is Christ and to die is gain. (Phil 1:21)

Jimmy Tompkins
Worship Pastor
It is a joy and honor to be serving as the Worship Pastor at Morris Hill Baptist. Our full time call to ministry began on the first Sunday of December, 1985. We have since served in churches in Alabama, Florida and Georgia.
My wife (Melea) and I both grew up in east central Alabama. We met in our junior year in high school and got married five years later in May, 1985. The Lord has blessed us with two wonderful children, Nate and Aria.
We are looking forward to the days ahead at Morris Hill. We also trust that as we gather each Sunday that we will be led to the throne room of the Lord and HE will be honored and magnified above all!

Mike Winningham
Pastor of Students & Recreation

I was born and raised in the great city of Chattanooga.  There has never been another place I have wanted to call home.  Every day that God gives me to minister to students in this area is a blessing.

Before answering the call into the ministry I worked for 19 years at Precision Marine as a technician.  Precision Marine is my dad’s business that he founded in 1983.  If within the last 19 years you have owned a boat there is a good possibility my dad or I have worked on it.

In 1994 I met Becky Summers, and in 1996 I was blessed to have her become my wife.  God has blessed us with two great kids; Rozlyn, and Preslee.

I am currently serving as the youth pastor at Morris Hill Baptist, and have been on staff since November 2008.  The responsibility to train and equip students for their walk with God is awesome, and I am thankful and humbled by the opportunity.
