Gil McConnell - LEAD PASTOR


God saved me at age 16. Since then, he has mercifully guided me through

the twists and turns of life. Along the way, God gave grace to earn degrees

from Bethlehem College & Seminary in Minneapolis and Southern Seminary

in Louisville, KY. I served for 14 years as the Pastor for Children & Family Discipleship at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Mounds View. Then, the Lord called us to serve his church at Meadow Creek in 2019. My precious bride, JoAnna, and I have five children and love to help people find their joy in

Jesus. I also enjoy God's gifts of music, laughter, and time with my family.
