Wes Conner

Senior Pastor

Our Senior Pastor, Rev. Wes Conner, and his wife Eve came to Mt. Zion Baptist Church in April 2015.  Originally from Jacksonville, Florida, they have lived in Kentucky since 2011 and have two married children and one grandson.  

Pastor Conner is a graduate of Trinity Baptist College and Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary, and is currently a candidate for his doctorate in ministry at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville.  He is a former youth pastor and retired United States Army intelligence officer, and he served as a senior pastor for eight years in Northern Virginia prior to coming to Kentucky.  

Pastor Wes is firmly devoted to feeding God’s people with Christ-centered expository Bible preaching and to leading God’s people to have a vision of reaching others with the gospel message and teaching them biblical truth.  His life’s verse is 2 Corinthians 12:9,

And He said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”
