The KBF Coordinating Council met for its annual August meeting at Buechel Park Baptist Church in Louisville. On Friday, August, 16 the council held a surprise celebration dinner to honor John Lepper for his 15 years of service as the KBF Coordinator. Toast - and maybe a few roasts - were given to John during the dinner by Ron Higdon (Interim Pastor, FBC Morehead), Jeremy Colliver (Minister to Youth, St. Matthews Baptist, Louisville), Rick Underwood (Pastor, Hemp Ridge Baptist, Hemp Ridge), Clarissa Strickland (CBF, Georgia), Don Rogers (Pastor, Buechel Park Baptist, Louisville), and Marian McClure Taylor (Executive Director, Kentucky Council of Churches). Alice Mull presented John with gifts from the Coordinating Council including a plaque and a box filled with letters from friends and colleagues. It was a special night in the life of KBF and a fun celebration of John's 15 years leading the Kentucky Baptist Fellowship.
