Dr. Gil McKee

Senior Pastor

Gil McKee began his ministry as Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church, Tuscaloosa in March 2000. He surrendered to the call of God into vocational ministry in 1978. “God changed the direction of my call from music to preaching in 1983. Next to salvation, the call of God to serve him in full-time vocational ministry is the most humbling privilege of my life.”

He earned a Bachelor of Music (B.M.) degree from Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, Texas;  a Master of Divinity (M.Div.) from Southwestern Baptist Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas and a Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kansas City, Missouri.
