Robert Pitman 

Lead Pastor

My name is Robert Pitman and I am the Lead Pastor of Sanctuary Church. At Sanctuary, we believe that NOTHING IS STRONGER THAN LOVE. You will see that mentality on display as soon as you enter our church. You will be greeted by awesome people who will answer any questions you may have and will make Sanctuary feel like your second home.  If you have kids they will love our indoor playground at our Kids Hub. After speaking to our greeters, we encourage you to visit our Spirit Café for complimentary Espresso based drinks. As you walk in you will hear upbeat praise and worship from our band, followed by an inspirational message from God's Word relatable to your everyday life.
 
I was born and raised in Lexington, Kentucky where I attended the University of Kentucky on a football scholarship and earned a degree in Speech Communications. After graduating from U.K. I went on to study at Asbury Theological Seminary where I earned a Masters of Divinity Degree. Later in life I decided to go back to school where I earned a Doctor of Ministry degree in Counseling from Luther Rice Seminary in Atlanta Georgia. After becoming a Certified Addiction Specialist, I was hired as the Director of Counseling and Recovery Ministry at Crossroads Christian Church in Lexington, Kentucky.
 
After a few years in ministry, God led me into counseling to deal with some personal issues in my life. It was the best thing I ever did. Out of that experience, God gave me a heart for the lonely, the lost, the least, the addicted, the seeker, and those who have felt judged by the church. On 10/10/10 we were led by God to launch Sanctuary Church, a place "Where Anyone Can Belong and Make a Difference."
 
I encourage you to take the next step and check out Sanctuary Church so you can see for yourself the plan God has for you. No matter where you are in your relationship with God, we are the place where you can come as you are, be loved, and be changed.
 
I look forward to personally meeting you!

Evan Butler 

worship leader 

My name is Evan Butler and I am the Worship Leader at Sanctuary Church. My wife, Hannah, and I came to this church in March 2020. We, along with our daughters, Harper and Maya, love being a part of the community and family at Sanctuary. This church is about being more than talk, this church is about action and that's what drew us to this place. Whether it's doing outreach monthly, our ministry and mission groups, or serving in Mary's Clothes Closet, there are plenty of ways to serve and be the hands of feet of Jesus through this community. Leading the worship team here is such a blessing as I get to work with so many talented vocalists and musicians who love to serve Jesus and worship Him authentically. If you're looking for a place to be a part of a family and love others, I invite you to come and check out our gatherings and groups.
