Our Pastor

Richard Gaines

Pastor Gaines was born in Tyler, Texas, and he is the youngest of seven children. After graduating from high school, he attended Stephen F. Austin State University and received a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Marketing.

After nearly ten years in Corporate America, Pastor Gaines acknowledged his call into the gospel ministry, and was licensed to preach at First Baptist Church of Chesterfield, Missouri. He was later ordained by First Baptist Church of Jeffersontown, Kentucky, and he received his Master of Divinity degree from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (SBTS)

In 1996, God called Pastor Gaines to Consolidated Baptist Church in Lexington, Kentucky, and he has faithfully served this congregation and the community. Because of God’s favor and Pastor Gaines’ heart for evangelism, Consolidated has experienced tremendous growth and additional staff members, ministries, and facilities have been added to allow the church to holistically minister to those inside and outside of the congregation.

Pastor Gaines is happily married to the former Sarah A. Barnett of Cincinnati, Ohio. She is a graduate of Howard University and the University of Kentucky. They have been blessed with one son, Micah Richard. He is a graduate of the University of Kentucky and Virginia Union University, and he is also a preacher of the Gospel and a gifted musician.
