LEADERSHIP

Pastor, Staff, & Deacons

Kyle Fannin

Pastor

Pastor Kyle and Jessica Fannin met in 2004, were married in 2005, and now have three sons, Drew, Nate, and Luke. The couple served in full-time ministry at Fairfax Baptist Temple, in Fairfax, Virginia, where Kyle spent his childhood, accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior, and attended school. It was there that he responded to a call from God to preach the Gospel. In the summer of 2008 Pastor Kyle arrived in Georgetown where he founded Bluegrass Baptist Church. The congregation of two grew to sixteen charter members by December of that year and the church has grown steadily since then, with well over 200 members, regular attenders, and weekly guests by 2022.
We are united by a vision that flows from our Pastor’s personal goals: Love God, Glorify God, and Reach the Lost!
