About My Family

Todd and Jennifer were married in 1993 and have been blessed with two children, Kelsey and Brandon. Todd grew up right here in Lake County before moving to Virginia during high school. Todd and Jennifer met in Virginia, where Jennifer's family is from. The Bolton family moved to Ohio in 2011, where Todd served as associate pastor for a sister church. Previously, Todd and Jennifer served three years in the Middle East with the International Mission Board (IMB) before returning home to Virginia to serve as associate pastor at Bacon's Castle Baptist Church, where Todd was ordained into the ministry.
Our family has traveled around the world participating in various missions trips, and we are passionate about seeing people come to Christ. We desire to be actively involved in the Great Commission of going and making disciples. We pray that God gives us many opportunities for His glory! We are extremely excited to have this opportunity of serving in Todd's hometown.

NAMB Church Planting

Demonstrated Christian character is essential for missionaries and chaplains to gain credibility and build community. A missionary is a person who, in response to God's call and gifting, leaves his or her comfort zone and crosses cultural, geographic or other barriers to proclaim the gospel and live out a Christian witness in obedience to the Great Commission. The North American Mission Board supports missionaries serving across the United States, Canada and their territories. Churches are the missionary incubators and sending centers for missionaries through the Southern Baptist Convention. Missionaries serve in a variety of settings and face tremendous challenges. But the rewards are tremendous and life-changing. Missionaries have the privilege to represent their church and their Father in sharing the gospel as the primary focus of their activity. If you are interested in pursuing next steps as a potential missionary or chaplain from your church, explore the possibilities at


–For our community to have an increased desire to know God and His Word. –For new laborers to help serve the church in order to reach our community. –For our elder board, as we strive to equip the saints for the work of the ministry.


–Pray, pray, pray! –Help with neighborhood engagement through outreach, prayerwalks and community surveys. (We are open to other ideas to help with this.) –Send construction teams to help us make repairs to an aging facility. –Give online @
Many missionaries build a team to join their ministry in prayer, participation, and provision. These friends, family and churches support missionaries beyond the tithes and offerings given within the church plant. Visit for NAMB's policy on providing for church plants.
