About Our Pastor

Pastor Ken Landers and his wife Cheryl attended high school together in McArthur, CA. They were married at Hat Creek Baptist Church on August 25, 1962.  They have five married children and nineteen grandchildren. During the summer of 1969 they moved to Portland, OR to attend Multnomah School of the Bible. Pastor Landers has also attended Western Baptist Bible College, Western Seminary, and Shasta Bible College.  Ken has served as pastor of six churches in northern California. He was privileged to have the opportunity to serve as the Christian School Administrator while pastoring three of those churches.


In July, 1997, God led Ken and Cheryl to Crossroads Baptist Church in Bella Vista. Since coming to Crossroads Baptist Church, he has led two building programs. These were done following the destruction of the original facility in the Jones Valley Fire of 1999. The main auditorium and offices were completed in 2001, and the Fellowship Hall and Sunday School building were finished in 2010. Pastor has a heart for people and a desire to see each member and visitor of Crossroads grow in their spiritual walk.
