• About Us •


Our Vision:

Through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we seek to partner with parents to faithfully and creatively teach the gospel, demonstrate the love of Jesus, and equip kids as they grow in Christ to proclaim the Good News to others.

Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.  These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.  Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them be a symbol on your forehead.  Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your city gates. 

Deuteronomy 6:5-9

Janelle Venters

Children's Minister

Janelle is the Children’s Minister at LNBC and joined our staff in 2009. Called to work with children in college, she studied Early Elementary Education at Eastern Kentucky University and completed the Advanced Certification in Children’s Ministry through Bethel Seminary in 2018.

Her love for children’s ministry is intense! Having served in ministry for almost 20 years, she is passionate about helping guide the spiritual formation of young minds to the eternal Truth that Jesus is Lord, and nurturing a desire in kids to know fully, grow deeply, and show generously, the love of Christ.

Janelle was married to her best friend and ministry partner, Houston, for 16 years, until he was called home to be with the Lord in 2015. They have two beautiful teenage daughters, Bailey and Tori. And though her family calls North Carolina home, they will ALWAYS be Kentucky Wildcats!
