Mike Kubinec

Mike Kubinec

Mike and his wife, Mariko, moved to Louisville in 2015 from San Antonio, TX, so that Mike could pursue a seminary education at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and Mariko could complete a medical residency at the University of Louisville. Previously, Mike served on staff with Sojourn Church Midtown’s college ministry and his family has doubled in the last three years to include their son and their daughter. He was called to be the Senior Pastor of Vine Street Baptist Church in July, 2019

Mike grew up in a Christian home that taught him the gospel, and he trusted in Christ when he was 14. He has moved a lot in his life, previously living in New York, Texas, Slovakia, Pennsylvania, Chicago, Washington, DC, and Texas again. He loves good coffee, has a bit of a reading problem, and gets outside as much as he can. He would love to grab coffee with you at some point; just send him an email to set something up.

Mickie Bainter

Director of Children’s Ministries

Mickie moved to Louisville in 1991 to attend Southern Baptist Theological Seminary where she earned a Masters of Divinity in Christian Education degree with a focus on children’s ministry.   While there, she met Chandler and they married just after graduating.  Together they have one son, now an adult.  Mickie was hired by Vine Street Baptist Church in 1995 as the Daycare Director.  Although the Daycare no longer exists, Mickie has spent the last twenty years volunteering in the children’s program.  

Mickie grew up in a Christian home and trusted in Christ at a young age.  Because of this, she enjoys working with children and adolescents of all ages to make the gospel something they can understand.  In her free time, Mickie enjoys logic puzzles, games of any sort, as well as arts and crafts.

Jack Vander Hill

Pastoral Intern

Jack has lived in Louisville since 2018, when he moved from Orange County, CA to attend Boyce College. He is currently working on finishing his degree in Biblical Counseling with only a few semesters left to go. He has been an active member of Vine Street Baptist Church since he moved to Louisville, and just recently stepped into the role of Pastoral Intern. As the Pastoral Internship is part-time, Jack also works full-time at the Rawlings Company in La Grange, KY. Jack met his wife Kourtney at Boyce College and they got married in June of 2021.

Jack grew up in a Christian home, but his faith in Christ was made personal in his late teen years. Around that time he was mentored and discipled by older men and felt the call to ministry. Jack is passionate about serving the local church in the context that the Lord has placed him in. When he’s not working or studying Jack enjoys being with his wife and their friends, or playing with their dog, Toph.
