I have been married to the woman of my dreams for almost six years and I am the proud father of two boys, Wesley Rick Haynes and Benjamin Larry Haynes. My wife and I grew in Lee’s Summit and met at High School my senior year. I then went to Missouri Western where I became heavily involved in the Baptist Student Union and graduated in 2009 with my B.S. in Music. I started at Carnegie right after I graduated from Missouri Western and have loved every minute serving this congregation. Since joining Journey Baptist Church in 2014, my wife and I have been overwhelmed by the love and fellowship of the new church and hope to serve here for many years to come. I will be graduating with my Masters of Theology in December 2015 and look forward to seeing how God can use me to serve His people.
