Trey believes that living in community is the best way for the Gospel to change lives. His bold and encouraging teaching never fails to challenge an audience. He enjoys speaking at churches and youth groups on developing leaders, trusting God when you’re out of hope, and how to share the Gospel with your friends.


Trey was born and raised in Gaffney, SC. He received a bachelor’s degree from North Greenville University majoring in Christian Studies and masters from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. Since surrendering to the ministry in 2002, Trey has spoken at numerous churches, youth camps, DiscipleNow events, student rallies, FCA’s, First Priority Clubs, and has also preached overseas. Trey has served in student ministry for several years and recently helped with a church plant in Hendersonville, NC. He is passionate about preaching the gospel and seeing Jesus transform lives.

Trey received Christ when he was eight years old and was raised in a Christian home. He began to feel God calling him into the ministry as a teenager but initially ignored it. Around the age of seventeen he began to fall away from God and for about a year and a half did what he wanted and followed the ways of the world. During this time he knew he was running and was miserable. This ultimately led to him hitting rock bottom and Christ getting a hold of his life. He realized that without Christ life wasn't worth living and surrendered everything to Him. In January of 2002 he answered the call to full-time ministry.

Since then Trey just wants to honor Christ in everything he does and follow Him wherever He leads whether that be overseas or across the street. Trey loves to mentor and develop leaders by investing in their daily lives. Trey believes that every conversation and encounter is an opportunity to share Jesus with those who are hurting, lost, and need the gospel.

Trey met his beautiful bride Melissa while in college and they married on May 7, 2005. They have a son named Jaxson, a daughter named Paitlyn and one on the way. Melissa is not only the love of Trey’s life and partner in ministry, but is also a speaker, writer, singer, and makes the best shepherd’s pie on the planet!

Trey enjoys spending time with his family, reading, listening to music, medium-rare steaks, cheeseburgers, sushi, roller coasters, good movies, lifting weights, running, The Weather Channel, and anything involving the Tarheels!

Trey was a part of a special group of guys that recently went through Coaching Network. I was impressed with his humility, Christ like spirit, and strong desire to preach the gospel. He’s a hard worker and loves his family deeply. I’m proud to call Trey my friend and honored to be on the same team with him.

We were blessed by having Trey Bradley from CKM at our Church. Trey’s humble spirit was evident from the moment we started planning by phone and texts to the moment he arrived on the campus. His interactions between students, leaders and even the praise and worship band brought our hearts together for worship. Trey brought a powerful message to hundreds of students and presented his walk as a Christian speaker, father and just a sinner saved by grace. It was easy to see his hunger for God in his own life as he presented a challenge to come down from hiding in the trees of life and walk with Jesus. The response at the end of the service was the joy of seeing new Christians for the kingdom and renewals in other lives. I recommend Trey and Clayton King Ministries as a great resource for any Christian organizations to call upon for a speaker for your Church or event.

I’m so happy to have Trey Bradley on our team. We’ve been partnering with him for several years and have seen God use him in multiple settings from local churches to evangelistic events to our own Crossroads Camps and Winter Conference. When Trey was a part of my Coaching Network, I saw great potential, a humble heart, and a desire to preach the gospel and serve the local church. I’m blessed to call him a friend and I highly recommend you consider bringing Trey in to speak for your event.
