For 20 years, Happy Trails Ministry in Nortonville seeks to reach people in the equestrian community with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Happy Trails Ministry presents Cowboy Church, Horse Whisperer events, and horseback faith presentations throughout Kentucky and Tennessee. Ministry President and Chaplain, Chris Clarke says, “As I share the basic truths of the gospel, I often share the same concept in a “horsey” parallel. I have literally used my horse to show them these truths; in fact, that’s one of my favorite things to do!”
Chris describes Happy Trails Ministry as a “sowing and watering” ministry. Chris and Happy Trails volunteers can build long-term relationships as they travel, sharing the Gospel easily understood by the equestrian community. Through this method, many have come to Christ and believers have been strengthened in their faith. They encourage event attendees to connect with a local church in their area and encourages those from Western Kentucky to attend Kentucky Lake Cowboy Church in Draffenville where he pastors.

There are more than 12 International congregations that are part of the Central Kentucky Network (CKNB) of churches. The network currently partners with Congolese, African, Nepali, Hispanic, and Haitian congregations. They hope to also partner with Indonesian and Filipino congregations in the future.
The CKNB connects international churches to local congregations to help strengthen both the local and international congregations.
“The Eliza Broadus Offering is an enormous help to us as we support these congregations in numerous ways such as training and development, outreach supplies, ministry start-up cost and more. Without the EBO these ministries would be hindered in reaching those in their community and targeted ethnic groups. “- David Barron, Network Ministry Director CKNB

Without intentional evangelism training and implementation, students who don’t attend church may never hear the gospel. With over 18,500 students in its area, and only an estimated 12% of them attending church, First Priority Tri-county takes its mission to reach the CAMPUS for CHRIST seriously. From Elementary to High Schools, there are 42 campus clubs across the region and club members serve as student missionaries in the schools they attend. Initially, First Priority Tri-county organized to reach students in Knox, Laurel, and Whitley counties, however it has expanded into McCreary, Pulaski, and Clay counties.
Tim Bargo is a Kentucky MSC missionary serving in his 15th year as executive director for First Priority Tri-County. Tim and his team of campus coaches, train and resource student missionaries.
Each year, hundreds of students profess faith in Christ through First Priority's ministry. While no one church can reach and disciple every middle and high school student in their community, together THE Church can.
Please pray for all our Missionaries today! Pray for favor with unbelievers (Acts 13:14–15).

"The Center" is a ministry of Licking River Baptist Church (LRBC) in Salyersville. Originally designed for housing mission teams, it has since expanded to provide a safe, engaging space for the community to come into contact with a transformative Jesus. During this expansion, LRBC has partnered with a local drug rehab, hosted graduations, and even held a VBS. They have added many new families to their congregation and have celebrated 4 baptisms and 1 new salvation story.
Recently, the church leadership identified an unmet need in the community, specifically, families with special needs children and began ministering to the 95 families in the Magoffin County School system classified as such. Because most of this population is unchurched and does not feel comfortable bringing their kids to a worship service, LRBC applied for, and received, an EBO grant to create a safe and sensory-friendly space for these families to worship. Though this is a brand new area of ministry, LRBC has already seen interest among special needs families for a ministry tailored to their population. LRBC expects great salvation stories to come through this ministry in the future.
