Pastor Lawrence Richardson was born in western Kentucky in October of 1951.  He and his wife Sharon met while attending high school.  They were married in January of 1970.
In the fall of 1970 Bro. Richardson enrolled in Baptist Bible College, Springfield, Missouri. Upon graduation in 1973, he moved to northern Kentucky to start the Berean Baptist Church in Walton KY. This church is now located in Independance KY. After a few years Pastor Richardson started the New Testament Baptist Church near Benton, Kentucky. Both of these churches are doing well in the Lord's service today.
In 1979 Pastor Richardson and his wife came to Grace Baptist Church where he assumed the position of associate pastor and two years later became administrator of Grace Baptist School.  In 1986, upon the resignation of the former pastor, Bro. Richardson accepted God's calling to fill the vacant position. 
During the years that have followed many advancements in the ministry have been made.  If you would like more information concerning the church or school you may contact the pastor at the churches address or e-mail him at
