Our Pastor

Pastor Matthew Tilley answered the call to come to McConnell Road Baptist Church in January 2018.

“Nearly 40 years ago, God saved me by the miraculous grace of Jesus Christ. Then in 2005, He called me to preach His His Word. My prayer is that God will let me see Him do the amazing things He’s capable of as I point sinners to Jesus, equip and encourage the church, and glorify God in everything I do.”

– Matthew Tilley
