Senior Pastor: Dr. Barry J. Gibson
I am originally from Pineville, Kentucky, located in the Southeast corner of the state. For the first time, I truly understood the Gospel in my early twenties and repented, placing my faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ. I was called to vocational ministry in 2008. I, along with my wife Julie and our four children, relocated to the Louisville area in the Summer of 2011 to pursue formal theological training at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. I was called to serve as senior pastor in 2017, and I am committed to carefully and faithfully preaching and teaching the Word of God, as well as shepherding the people of God.
Associate Pastor: Trevor Johnston
As Associate Pastor, I serve Chapel Park by leading our worship team and overseeing various discipleship ministries in the church. I became a follower of Christ at a young age and was called to ministry in my teenage years. My wife, Hayley, and I are originally from Southern Illinois. We moved to Louisville shortly after we were married in 2019 and have attended Chapel Park since October of that year. I am currently pursuing a Master of Divinity from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary which I hope to finish in May 2022, and my wife will graduate at that same time with a degree in Teacher Education from Boyce College. I am passionate about teaching and preaching the Word of God and am excited to serve and shepherd Chapel Park in this role. I love Yankee baseball, Liverpool football (soccer), and Mexican food!
Counselor In Residence: Dr. Paul Schmidt
I came to Christ as a teenager and have been serving at Chapel Park since 2009. I am a licensed Christian Counselor and graduate of Tripp Bible Institute. My wife, Lisa and I reside in Louisville, Kentucky and have been married since 1981. We have two children and two grandchildren.
