Matthew McNeil is a Wilkes County native. He made the decision to follow Jesus when he was 17 and immediately recognized God’s call to ministry.
Matthew graduated from West Wilkes High School and later from Appalachian State University with a degree in Spanish Education.
In May 2008, He married his wife, Rachael, and the Lord quickly added two daughters and a son to their family: Kate, Cora, and Joel. Together they served the Lord in full-time camp ministry from May 2008 to December 2017.
Ordained in January 2015, Matthew also served briefly as a pastor in two local churches before joining the ministry of Mount Pleasant Baptist Church as a Pastoral Assistant.
Matthew’s passion is helping others know and live for Jesus Christ through knowing and obeying His Word and equipping them to teach their families to do the same.
