Mike and Zena Fields

Lead Pastors

Pastor Mike Fields grew up in Vicksburg, the son of Norman and Joyce Fields and the grandson of the late Rev. George W. and Grace Fields. At the age of 12, Mike had a powerful encounter with God marking him for the ministry. However, it would be years later before he would realize his destiny was to serve the local church full-time.
After completing his early education, he attended Commonwealth College, Houston, Tex., graduating in 1984. He married Zena Baladi in 1985. They have two children, George Anthony and Chelsea.

Mike worked in funeral home operations and management until founding his own company in 1989. He co-owned and operated Doric Mississippi, Inc. until the year 2000. Mike and Zena were among the earliest members of Triumph, serving as elders and as minister of music.
Around the age of 30, Mike begin to sense Gods call to full-time ministry. He served Triumph and its two preceding pastors with strong commitment to the local church. With a heart for missions, he preached his first sermon in a church at Gaparelo, Trinidad. He also filled the pulpit for revival meetings in local churches here at home.

In the year 2000, at age 38, Mike followed Gods leading to sell the business to become Triumph’s full-time Senior Pastor. The church has seen tremendous growth over the past eighteen years under his leadership. Zena has served along side him with a heart for women and a strong gift of administration. She brings a spirit of excellence to this pastoral team.

Mike is a graduate of Trinity College and Theological Seminary, Newburgh, Ind. He holds a bachelor of arts in Biblical Studies.
