Baptist Seminary of Kentucky student Jordan Conley has been called as interim minister to students and young adults at Crescent Hill Baptist Church in Louisville, effective Oct. 31.
Jordan, a native of Knott County in Eastern Kentucky, now lives in Louisville and has been a member of Crescent Hill since 2014. He is completing his final year of study at BSK and is a candidate for ordination at Crescent Hill.
“We are blessed that Jordan will be serving in this role at Crescent Hill Baptist Church,” said Jason Crosby, co-pastor of the congregation. “Jordan’s intellect, combined with his love for people and God, makes him uniquely suited to minister in any congregation.”
In addition to his duties at Crescent Hill, Jordan is serving an internship with the Association of Welcoming and Affirming Baptists, an organization that encourages the full inclusion of LGBTQ people in Baptist congregations and other Baptist-affiliated groups. Approximately 125 congregations in 34 states, the District of Columbia and Canada are members of AWAB.
Brian Henderson, national coordinator of AWAB, said the organization is pleased to partner with Jordan and BSK in this internship experience.
“As AWAB prepares to celebrate 50 years of welcoming and affirming ministry within our broader Baptist family and as the organization expands its outreach in more Baptist settings, we find this to be a timely opportunity to offer an educational experience to Jordan and to also learn from Jordan’s own ministry experiences and expertise,” he said.
