  • Brian Bacelieri, Elder

    Next Generation Ministries

    Brian Bacelieri has been blessed to see God take a vision, that started in the hearts of a few over 15 years ago, and transform that into what is now known as Commonwealth City Church.  In that time God has awakened a hunger and a thirst in him to see a unified community of believers set ablaze for the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Even more specifically, God has given him a desire to equip and train families to have a big view of God and the gospel for the sake of raising the next generation of passionate Christ followers.  Brian has been married to his lovely wife, Paige, for almost 12 years and their quiver has been filled with four children: Elijah (9), Eliana (8), Elora (6), and Elise (3).  In addition to serving the local church, he enjoys the outdoors, playing basketball, and woodworking, as well as a good home reno project.

  • Adam Braun, Elder

    Family Groups

    Biblical community is a mighty force in the hands of a sovereign, good God. In Adam, God replaced a heart of stone with a heart of flesh through the faithful gospel witness of a group of college friends. In him also, God fanned into flame a desire for Christ's kingdom, a love of Christ's name, a hunger for Christ's word, all through the fellowship of a Christ-treasuring church family that would eventually be called "Commonwealth City Church." Because of this, Adam yearns that all would know the inexpressible joys of communion with Christ as part of a Biblical community. As an elder, he oversees Commonwealth's Family Groups, which aim to be such a community living out the Great Commission, thriving by the power of the Holy Spirit. He and his amazing wife Ashley have four children: Oliviah, David, Sophia, and Tessah.

  • Trey Sexton, Pastoral Resident

    Trey came to faith during his freshman year of college, where the Lord also called him to ministry. While being raised in Central Kentucky and a graduate of UK, he has a heart for campus and seeing God's glory made known on it. Trey also serves as our Communication and Production Director while pursuing a Masters of Applied Theology from Grimke Seminary. He lives here in Lexington with his wife, Emily.

  • Jacob Turner, Intern

    Jacob came to faith in Christ in 2014 and was raised in the church since he was born.

  • Brady Casper, Intern
