Our Pastor — Max Vanderpool

Max Vanderpool is the Lead Pastor of Generations. He is married to Jenny and, together, they have three children: John Mark, Jillian and Madeline. Max is a graduate of Wheaton College (B.A., M.A.) and Asbury Theological Seminary (MDiv.), and he has served on the Board of Directors for the Jessamine County Food Pantry, Leadership Jessamine County, and the Jessamine County Homeless Coalition. Max is also a Chamber Ambassador and an adjunct instructor at Asbury University. In 2006, he completed a year-long study of worldview through the Centurion Program (personally led by Chuck Colson). Max’s hobbies and interests include: reading, hiking, kayaking, Star Trek (and most other Sci-Fi), and American history.

Max is held accountable for his walk with Jesus and for the mission and vision of Generations by elders, although most decision-making at Generations is made by people IN the trenches. We have several ministries and programs that are headed up by volunteers. These leaders and volunteers make the decisions for those ministries. We try to avoid “top-down” decision-making or “top-down” leadership. It’s what the reformers called the priesthood of all believers.
