Josh Speight Joins CBF National Staff


KBF Associate Coordinator of Missions, Josh Speight, will depart KBF after nearly six years of faithful service at the end of April to answer a call at CBF National to become Ministries Manager, working closely with Bo Prosser, CBF Ministries Coordinator. As CBF Ministries Manager, Speight will assist CBF churches and partners with spiritual formation and leadership development resources. 

During Speight's tenure at KBF, he has led the effort to complete six Extreme Build projects,  numerous partnerships between KBF churches and Moroccan churches, Together for Hope partnerships in Eastern Kentucky, asset mapping for KBF, youth missions weekends, and more. In his resignation letter, Speight stated, "

I leave KBF confident that the Coordinating Council and staff will continue to work together with our congregations to be the presence of Christ in the world.  I am grateful that though I will not be involved as intimately with the ministry of KBF as I have been, I will still be involved with you through my role at CBF.  I look forward to supporting you from Atlanta and pray for God’s blessings to be with KBF during this transition.  Thank you for all that you have done for me and my family these past six years.  Your love, support, prayers, and friendship will always be cherished by me. 

In order to smooth the transition, the KBF Coordinating Council has asked Laura Barclay, Networking and Communications Associate, to assist KBF by taking on extra hours and adding the role of Interim Missions Associate to her work. Barclay will partner with Speight on missions until his departure and continue missions initiatives in order to keep KBF ministries thriving.

Speight will continue to work with KBF until the end of the Spring Gathering, April 25-26, at Broadway Baptist Church in Louisville. Make sure to thank him for his service at the meeting, or send him a note of blessing at We will all miss Josh's ministry and spiritual gifts, but look forward to partnering with him in his work at CBF National!
