Meet some of our leadership

We are a friendly Spirit-filled group dedicated to reaching out to the community. Our humble staff and volunteer leaders have been involved in the community for many years, and they bring with them the ability to lead, to inspire and to care for the needs of all people in a Christ-like fashion.


Our goal is to be a light that shines to a world that is in need of direction and fullness of faith. Our leaders provide Lena Baptist Church with the inspiration and direction to reach out to people, committed to helping them grow in truth; one heart, one faith at a time.
