Dr. Charles Barnes, a Kentucky Baptist Statesman
The Kentucky Baptist Foundation mourns the loss of a cherished leader and friend, Dr. Charles Barnes. Remembered for his character, professionalism, and passion, Chairman Barnes’ influence on the KBF was indispensable and his impact profound. Serving as Interim KBF President twice, he was a beacon of wisdom and was a true statesman for our Kentucky Baptist community. His friendship and counsel were invaluable, and his absence will be deeply felt. As we reflect on his significant contributions and legacy, our prayers are with his wife Shelva and the Barnes family.
