Seth Budimlija

Young Families Pastor

Seth Budimlija joined the Lenexa Baptist staff full time in January 2015, as the Young Families Pastor.  Seth has responsibility over our LBC Kidz Ministry and Upward Basketball & Cheerleading program.  He wants to see parents continue to grow in faith and knowledge, and accept responsibility of discipling their children.

Seth was raised in a Christian home.  He accepted Christ and was baptized at a young age.  However it was not until he was in his early 20’s that he began to understand the implications of the Gospel in his life.  After serving in the United States Marine Corps for 5 years he returned to Kansas City to start a family.  It was at this point that God began to show him, and his wife Annie, one step at a time what His plans were for them.  Seth worked locally for Caterpillar for 9 years before being called to full-time ministry.

He and his wife Annie were married in 2003 and have 4 children: Lyndon, Mason, Raegan, and Korban.  In January of 2014 Korban passed away from a genetic disorder affecting the heart.  God was very gracious to their family during that time, and taught them many lessons through Korban’s short life.

Seth holds a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Kansas, and is working on a Master of Divinity degree from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.

I am sure of this, that He who started a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. – Philippians 1:6
