About Todd

Todd Carnes familyTodd grew up in the small mill town of Alabama City, AL. He graduated from the University of Alabama with a degree in civil engineering as the first college graduate in his family. After graduation, he served for 3 years as an international missionary and aid worker in various parts of Russia with the Southern Baptist Convention.

With that door of service closed, Todd and his family moved to Lexington where Todd served with Lexington Baptist Church for 7 years, leading local and international mission and aid efforts around the world. In 2008, he became the Lead Pastor of Radius Church and led the congregation as they relocated from temporary space within Midway Elementary School to a new location on Main Street in Lexington, refurbishing over 20,000 sq ft of abandoned space. The last three years Todd has re-engaged the business community by moving into an executive leadership position at SouthernMED Pediatrics, a Lexington based company with 7 locations spread throughout the state.

In March of 2014, Todd was first elected to Lexington Town Council and won his re-election bid in November, 2016. During his 4 years on town council, great strides have been made in addressing the ever increasing traffic and infrastructure needs within the town.

Todd is the father of 3 daughters ­ Laina(20), Amanda(18) and Kristy(16) ­ and has been married for 24 years to his wife, Kerri, who is a teacher and volleyball coach in our community. He holds a Bachelors Degree in Civil Engineering from The University of Alabama and a Masters Degree in Biblical Languages from Southeastern Seminary in Wake Forest, NC.
