Meet the Staff

Todd robertson 2020 original


The Louisville Regional Baptist Association called Todd Robertson as Director of Missions in October 2016.  He assumed his duties with LRBA on December 1st of that same year. 

Throughout his ministry years, Todd has always had a heart for and served in the local association. During his years in Louisville, he has volunteered, served a term as Moderator, and served on staff at LRBA. It’s clear that he loves this city and is committed to the work of the churches of this association. 

Rev. Robertson served as pastor of Bethany Baptist Church for three years.  Todd and his wife, Kim, were blessed to serve as North American missionaries from 2002 to 2005.  During those 3 ½ years he also was the Missions Strategist for LRBA.  In May 2005, he served as Associate Pastor of Missions at Walnut Street Baptist Church.  In 2009, Walnut Street sent him out as a church planter, which led to the establishment of Antioch Church in the south end of Louisville.   

Todd and Kim have three sons, Alec, and twins Nathan and Nicholas. Alec is a graduate of the University of Louisville.  Nathan is a graduate of Cedarville University in Ohio.  Nicholas has a rare genetic disorder, Angelman Syndrome, which has severely limited his development, but not his happiness. He is a graduate of Butler Traditional High School.  Kim is an exemplary mom and also works in a school cafeteria and keeps everyone in line.  Todd just tries to keep up!
