Born into a musical family, Justin began playing piano at age 5. Initially, showing a great interest in music, he learned and studied church music and church musicians.

Justin was raised in Bright Hope Baptist Church and was baptized by Rev. William H. Gray, III at the age of 6. As a child he was a member of the Sunday School, Toddler Choir, Youth Choir, Men’s Day Choir and served as a Junior Trustee. 

Minister Childs was licensed to preach the gospel on January 27, 2013 by Rev. Dr. Kevin R. Johnson and the Bright Hope Baptist Church family.

He is in constant pursuit of excellence in all levels of ministry and currently serves as Bright Hope’s Youth Church minister, the teacher/facilitator of the Adult Sunday School Class, and as one of the liaisons for Bright Hope’s presence on social media.

Justin is a quiet presence with an assurance and love for God and His word. He is now walking in the path God has placed before him and boldly proclaims, “Here am I Lord, send me” (Isaiah 6:8).
