Pastors & Staff

Ken Cornett

Senior Pastor

Pastor Ken Cornett was born in the great state of Arkansas in 1953. His family attended Calvary Baptist Church in Harrison. He was saved at the age of 8 in a revival meeting at the church. His family later moved to Kansas City, MO. He felt God calling him to the ministry when he was a senior in high school, while attending Glenwood Baptist Church. He attended Baptist Bible College in Springfield, Missouri and graduated in 1976 with a BA in theology. He met his wife Kathy in Bible college and they were married in July 1976. They have a blessed marriage and she is the love of his life. They have three married daughters Kendra, Keri, and Kayla. After college he served as youth pastor for two years at Calvary Baptist Church in Fort Lauderdale Florida. Then he was invited by pastor Bill Monroe to join the staff of the Florence Baptist Temple in Florence SC, where he served for eight years in various ministries, giving him a wide range of experience. He became acquainted with Midlothian when a family from Florence relocated there. After prayer and seeking God’s will he felt that God was leading him to start a church in Midlothian. He and his pregnant wife Kathy and their two daughters moved to the area in January of 1987 to start Midlothian Baptist Church. He counts it a privilege to be the founding pastor of this wonderful church family and he looks forward to what God has planned for us in the future.
Looking for an additional way to serve the community, he was excited to have the opportunity to become a volunteer police chaplain for Chesterfield County in September 2015. He counts it a privilege to be a part of this ministry.
He and Kathy love people, reading, spending time with their grandkids, traveling, and fishing at Lake Anna on their boat named, “Visitation.”

It was also at Liberty University that Brandon submitted to God’s calling for him to pursue full-time ministry.
