By His Grace and for His Glory,
Pastor Kyle Allen has been the Pastor of Richmond Baptist Church since July of 2012. Born in a Christian home, Bro. Allen was saved at the young age of five years old. It was very early in his life that God implanted in him a desire to preach the Word of God. While in high school he explored other career opportunities not the least of which was to carry on with his dad on the family farm but he could not escape that desire to preach. God confirmed His call upon Bro. Allen’s heart the summer before his senior year and he surrendered to full time service. It was while in Bible college that God confirmed his call to pastor. He met his wife Elizabeth while attending Bible College and they were married the summer after they graduated. He served as the Associate Pastor of Maranatha Baptist Church in his hometown of Covington, Indiana from 2004-2010 when God called him and his family to Westminster, Maryland to be an Associate Pastor to his father-in-law Pastor Mike Roadcup. It was then in 2012 that God moved him to step into the Senior Pastorate and brought the Allen Family to Richmond Baptist Church. Pastor Allen has a passion for the practical preaching and teaching of the Word of God and has tried to center the ministry of Richmond Baptist Church around the pulpit.
Pastor Allen and his wife Elizabeth have been blessed with five beautiful daughters that faithfully serve along side them in the church. God truly blessed the Allen Family by calling them to be a part of Richmond Baptist Church.
Pastor Jonathan Bartels has been the Assistant Pastor of Richmond Baptist Church since July of 2022. Bro. Bartels was born in a Christian home to a father and mother who instilled in him the Word of God. As a result, Bro. Bartels knew his need for a Saviour and was saved at the age of eight. During his teenage years, God gave him a strong desire and burden for foreign missions. God called Bro. Bartels to the mission field of Russia during his years in Bible college. Shortly after graduating he and his wife started on deputation where God would lead him to visit Richmond Baptist Church. Upon completion of their deputation, God very clearly shut the door for them to go to Russia. It was during that time God confirmed in Bro. Bartels' heart His call to pastor. God has allowed the hearts of Pastor Allen and Bro. Bartels to be firmly knit together not only personally but in ministry. Bro. Bartels has a passion for the preaching and teaching of the Word of God as well and serves to be an extension of the Pastor.
Pastor Bartels and his wife Courtney with their three children are truly blessed to be a part of the Richmond Baptist Church family.
