Chris Sanders, Interim Coordinator
I’m a Kentucky Baptist deep in my DNA. My grandfather, a b-ivocational farmer and preacher in Daviess County, was once president of the Kentucky Baptist Convention. My parents were active laypeople in Owensboro, and volunteered as medical missionaries all over the world for decades. I’m the product of youth groups, mission trips, lay witnessing, Georgetown College, and Southern Seminary, back when we proudly called it ours.
I’m a layman, practicing law solo in my own office, mostly for working people. I’m a deacon and musician at Ridgewood Baptist, a small church in Louisville’s hard-working South End. I travel for work all over Kentucky, and I like to be on the road. My plan is to be visiting and speaking in KBF churches on Sundays and Wednesdays from one end of the Commonwealth to the other throughout the interim. I’ve probably already called your church asking to come by. If we haven’t already talked, please call me. I look forward to being with you.
