Because we believe the church and family should work together to raise the next generation of Christ followers the Middle School and High School ministries are steps on the WayPoint path to spiritual maturity.
In addition to our annual events, which include retreats, mission trips and camp, we gather for weekly events.
The High School Ministry is a step on the WayPoint path to spiritual maturity. Our goal at Lenexa Baptist Church is for each student to leave the youth ministry ready to live the rest of their lives for Jesus Christ and making Him known.

Kent Hackathorn joined the Lenexa Baptist staff full time in March 2004, as the Recreation and Facilities Pastor. Kent has had the blessing of watching God use the Upward Basketball program reach the community with the gospel message. In September of 2006, Kent became the Young Families Pastor. This position included all of the children’s ministries as well as working with our young families to help them grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. His goal is to enhance their marriages, parenting skills and ability to impact their world for the Savior.
In November of 2008 Kent became the first Middle School Pastor at LBC. The continual growth of the church has allowed Lenexa Baptist to enjoy the benefits of having separate High School and Middle School ministries. Pastor Kent now serves as our Discipleship Pastor, oversees the Waypoint (family) ministry and directs the pastoral intern program.
Kent has a Bachelor degree in Psychology from the University of Kansas and a Masters degree in Religious studies from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He and his wife Cindy have two children, Tavis and Kelcey and four grandchildren: Brylee, Brayden, Gavin and Bentley.
Kent gave his life to Christ as a teenager at a family church camp. However, it wasn’t until after a serious motorcycle accident in his mid 20’s that he began to pursue God’s purpose for his life. Kent said, “God provided opportunities that didn’t make sense at the time, but looking back I now see how God’s hand was working to shape me for this exciting ministry position.
Jeremiah 29:11 says:
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.”
This verse truly came to life as he dedicated his life to Jesus Christ.
