Trini’s musical growth was nurtured and pruned for excellence in music ministry. A musical product of the Church of God In Christ and the Baptist Church, he is well versed in all facets of sacred music, from anthems to spirituals, traditional gospel, contemporary gospel, praise and worship, and hymns. He believes “You have to be prepared for Global Ministry!”; “The Kingdom is bigger than us!” This attitude, his demand for excellence in music ministry, and unrestrained passion for God has caused this young man to be a well sought after workshop clinician, minister of music, lead worshipper, composer, preacher of the gospel and mentor.

Michael McKay, Ricky Dillard and the late Olando Draper, Rev. Massie has fused pieces of these artists together to come up with a style that is completely his own, captivating audiences across the world.
Trini serves full time at Mount Ararat Baptist Church as the Minister of Worship under the leadership of Rev. Dr. William H. Curtis, Senior Pastor. Committed to the vision of the Pastor and Minister of Music, he works diligently to make sure the dreams for the music ministry are realized. “You must be submitted to your leaders.”; “If you help make their dreams come true, God will cause someone else to help make yours come true!” In September 2007, Dr. Curtis ordained Trini as an Elder in the Lord’s Church.
Trini is the Founder and Executive Director of 4 The Caz of Christ Productions, an aggregation of anointed minstrels and singers from Pittsburgh, PA and surrounding areas. A man of vision and dreams, it is his goal to start a music conservatory in the city of Pittsburgh that mentors, trains, and equips upcoming musicians, singers, and dancers.
