Mel McKinney - Senior Pastor

How long have you been at FBC Chappell Hill?

I am brand new; fresh out of the package.

What do you do here?

I serve as the senior pastor. Teaching on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights, providing direction and guidance for our church alongside our staff and deacons.

What’s your favorite Bible verse?

I really like 1 Corinthians 10:31. It's a good rule of thumb for life.

If you could be famous, what would you want to be known for and why?

Pitching a no-hitter in game 7 of the World Series would be awesome. Probably won't happen though...

What do you like to do in your free time?

I love reading, fishing, and watching Texas Rangers baseball (especially when they lose to the Astros!)

Tell us about your family.

My wife, Pamela, and I have been married for 23 years. We have four wonderful children. Sean attends the University of Arkansas. Julia, Emily, and Matthew will be attending Faith Academy.

Who is the greatest musician of all time in your mind?

That's a tough question. I would say that the greatest musician of all time, without regard to era, genre, or personal interest, would probably be either Wolfang Amadeus Mozart or Elvis Presley. Both were mavericks in their own right. My favorite band of all time is much easier - U2.
