Lanesville Christian Church

Our Leadership

Our board of Shepherds are responsible for both the spiritual and practical leadership of the church according to the tenants laid out in the Bible. 
Our current Shepherds are Art Adams, Chuck Woodfin, Pete Baumgartle, Neil King and Kevin Cornwell.

Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers.
Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood.

 -Acts 20:28 

Lead Pastor - Pete Baumgartle


Lanesville Christian Church is the second church plant Pete has had the privilege of being a part of.  In 1996, he took over the responsibilities of preaching minister of a small church that met in the Best Western Hotel in Corydon, leading them from 100 people to over 350 people, and through two building programs.

In 2003, Pete was asked to do it again… starting with five families meeting in a Lanesville park. When asked about the best part of ministry, Pete says, “Seeing what God is going to do next!”

Pete is a graduate of Cincinnati Christian University. He and his wife, Stephanie are natives of New Albany, Indiana. They have six children and seven grandchildren. Pete served six years in the U.S. Navy and has been in full-time ministry since 1993, serving as Youth Minister, Worship Minister, and Lead Pastor. He has been on staff at Eastside Christian in Clarksville, Indiana, Miamitown Church of Christ in Ohio, and First Capital Christian Church in Corydon, Indiana.
