Williamstown—Greg Nimmo, director of missions of Crittenden Baptist Association in northern Kentucky, will retire July 31 due to health concerns.
“I’m thankful for the ministry Greg has provided to the association and wish him well as he turns the page on another chapter in his life story,” said Eric Allen, Missions Mobilization Team Leader at the Kentucky Baptist Convention. “I applaud Greg’s efforts to lead the association to try different ways to reach the lost.”
Nimmo leaves Crittenden Association after 11 years. He began his tenure as DOM in 2005 after stints as senior pastor of Oak Ridge Baptist Church in Williamstown, Beech Ridge Baptist Church in Bagdad and Hustonville Baptist Church outside Danville.
“As you get older, your bones don’t renew themselves,” said Nimmo, “I needed to step down.”
Under Nimmo’s leadership, the association has emphasized missions projects and outreach in order to connect with others. The association has also looked to other areas of the United States to serve and evangelize.
“We just had a group return from the Sioux Indian reservation in South Dakota,” noted Nimmo. “Going forward, the association will make it a point to focus on the epidemic of the heroine highway through northern Kentucky.”
The Crittenden association will move forward with a search committee to find its next director of missions.
“I am praying the association will re-examine its value to the churches and re-dream their future as they seek the Lord for a DOM,” said Allen. (WR)
