I have been married to the woman of my dreams for almost 9 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 graduated from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in 2015 with my Masters in Theological Studies and since then have been service full time at Journey Baptist Church as an Associate Pastor of Administration, Worship and Teaching.
