Our Pastor – Ken Rutledge

Ken began his ministry at Rockford Lane on Sunday, April 24th of 2016.  He has now completed 8 years of ministry at Rockford Lane and has the heart for many more as the Lord allows.  Ken and his wife Rebecca have been married over 37 years and have three adult children, David, Richard & Katie. Ken was born in Fayetteville, TN but grew up in Dayton, Ohio where his dad served as Minister of Music/Youth at a church in East Dayton.  The family later moved to Louisville, Kentucky where his dad served as Minister of Music at Shively Heights Baptist Church in the mid 1980’s.  Ken & Rebecca met there at Shively Heights and married in 1986. Ken has been in ministry since 1986, serving churches in Williamsburg, KY, Lake City, Tennessee, Barbourville, KY and Louisville, KY. Ken has served in a variety of roles including music minister, youth pastor, worship leader, choral director.  In late 2015 he felt a new call to expand his ministry and serve as a pastor.  His passion is to lead Rockford Lane to touch the Rockford Lane Community with the gospel message of Jesus Christ.  Pictured below is Pastor Ken as he preaches God’s word.  Pastor Ken also serves the LRBA association as a member of the Personnel committee, and on the Board of Directors for the Baptist Fellowship Center.
