CADIZ–Paxton Redd, Little River Baptist Association’s director of missions, will be nominated for second vice president of the Kentucky Baptist Convention during its annual meeting in Louisville this November.
“At only age 30, he is easily one of our youngest men to serve in this field, and he has already distinguished himself as a man of character and wisdom,” Kyle Noffsinger, pastor of Cadiz Baptist Church, said in announcing Redd’s nomination.
“I was extremely honored and genuinely surprised when Pastor Kyle let me know he was going to nominate me,” Redd, a graduate of Campbellsville University and Southern Seminary, shared. “My hope, if elected, is to serve Kentucky Baptists to the best of my ability because they have done so much for me through the years.”
Redd has been the director of missions for Little River Association for the past year. Before that, he served as pastor of Oak Grove Baptist Church. Noffsinger notes that during Redd’s six years at Oak Grove, “The church saw solid growth and improved health.”
In addition, according to the Kentucky Baptist Convention’s ACP missions participation report for 2016, Oak Grove was one of five Little River Association churches to make the list.
“I am proud to call Paxton a friend, a brother, a co-laborer and—eeven though he is younger than me—a mentor,” Noffsinger added. “I humbly ask my fellow Kentucky Baptists to join me in approving this great man of God for the office of second vice president of the Kentucky Baptist Convention.”
Redd added, “My goal is to serve the local church because I believe that there is nothing on earth greater than the bride of Christ.” (WR)
