Pastor Kelly D. McInerney

Sr. Pastor -

Pastor McInerney was born in Saginaw, Michigan. After his parents divorced, his mother remarried, and the family moved to Oklahoma, where he spent most of his childhood. He was saved at a Baptist Church near Ada, at the age of seven. At a young age, Pastor McInerney felt the call of God for ministry.

After returning to Michigan in 1987 to attend Saginaw State University, he met Pastor Charles Smith, who offered to train him for ministry in Mt. Orab, Ohio. He began working part-time at the church in 1989, and met his future wife there. He and Theresa were married in 1990, and moved on to a church in Hillsboro, where he was ordained in 1993.

In January, 1995, the first Bible study was held, which grew into the Bible Baptist Church of Wilmington. The church just completed their 20th anniversary year, and has started 5 new churches in southwest Ohio since the year 2000. Pastor and Theresa have three children - Kenton, Kaden, and Kerrigan. In addition to his ministry with the church, Pastor McInerney has served the Ohio Baptist Bible Fellowship as secretary, and chairman, and currently serves as chaplain for the Southwest District of the Ohio State Highway Patrol and the Clinton County Sheriff's Office.

Josh has been a resident of Clinton County all of his life. He graduated from Circleville Bible College in 2001, where he received an associate’s degree in youth ministry. Josh and his family began attending BBC, and he became a member in 2000. He began to work part time in August of 2000 at the church to receive training from Pastor McInerney. In December of 2000, Josh became a full time assistant to the Pastor. On August 4, 2001, Misty and Josh were married. Together they served in the youth department where Josh served as youth Pastor for four years and saw many teens come to know Christ as their personal savior.

Beginning in January, 2007, he became Pastor’s first assistant, with the responsibility of overseeing operations. God has also blessed Misty and Josh with three boys, Preston, Parker, and Pace. It is Josh’s desire to stay in God’s will as he serves the Lord through the ministries of Bible Baptist Church of Wilmington.
