Senior Pastor: Dr. Barry J. Gibson

I am originally from Pineville, Kentucky, located in the Southeast corner of the state. For the first time, I truly understood the Gospel in my early twenties and repented, placing my faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ.  I was called to vocational ministry in 2008. I, along with my wife Julie and our four children, relocated to the Louisville area in the Summer of 2011 to pursue formal theological training at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.  I am thrilled to serve as senior pastor and am committed to carefully and faithfully preaching and teaching the Word of God, as well as shepherding the people of God.
