Pleasureville—A longtime pastor and retired Mid-Continent University professor has been called to serve as director of missions for Henry County Baptist Association.
Larry Orange, a founder and former pastor of His House Ministries in Mayfield, has already started in his new role.
“Larry brings a wealth of experience and a passion for the local church to this new role, so I’m excited for the association,” said Eric Allen, Missions Mobilization team leader with the Kentucky Baptist Convention. “Henry County Association has been without DOM leadership for quite some time, so I’m very thankful that Larry will be filling that void.”
Orange led more than 500 worshippers each Sunday while pastor of His House from 2003-10. At the same time, he juggled several roles at Mid-Continent University, including professor, dean of the College of the Bible, and director of the Christian Ministry Center and regional bivocational center. He also initiated the campus ministerial association.
Orange has experience serving an association, having been director of missions for Gasper River Baptists in the mid-90s.
Prior to serving at His House, Orange spent four years as a pastor in Illinois and 11 years at West Broadway Baptist Church in Louisville.
Orange holds a doctorate degree in ministry from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He and his wife reside in Shelby County. (KBC)
