Meet our Staff

Chris Wilson

Brother Chris was born in Pensacola, FL but grew up in Birmingham, AL. He went to school at Auburn University, the University of Alabama-Birmingham, and graduated from Troy State University. He then received a Master of Divinity from Beeson Divinity School in Birmingham.


Meredith was born in Houston, TX and grew up in Fort Smith, AR. She attended the University of Arkansas for three years and transferred to Samford University in Birmingham where she received a Bachelor’s Degree in Speech Communication and a Doctor of Pharmacy.


They met on Chris' first day as an intern in single adult ministry at Hunter Street Baptist in Birmingham. They soon discovered that they were at the same school (and had been for almost two years). He was not allowed to date anyone in the church at the time, but it did not take long for their mutual attraction to become very evident to his boss who happily rescinded the dating rule. They were married in June 2000.


They have some normal hobbies like most everyone else. Chris loves golf and reading. Meredeth loves cooking and making their house a great home. Both love college football. Chris is a dye-hard Auburn Tiger. Meredeth is an Arkansas Razorback. But their favorite activity is working together in ministry. Meredith is the ideal pastor’s wife. They make a great team because they realize that it takes both of them using their gifts for God’s glory in order to fulfill their calling to pastor the church.
