Winchester—On Sunday Aug. 6, Dennis Wainright retired from 40 years of faithful service at Central Baptist Church in Winchester. Over his years of service, he has influenced not only his church, but also his community, through a myriad of vocations.

Wainright’s service, effort, and faithfulness has been a blessing and a “God send,” said Travis Drake, lead pastor at Central Baptist Church.

Wainright started his career at Central Baptist Church in Winchester in 1977. His passion for ministry was such that he started serving churches as soon as he graduated from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
