Church or Org Description *
Gather, Grow, Give, Go!
Located in the southern suburbs of Minneapolis, Berean Baptist Church exists to see their lives, the community, and the world transformed by the power of the gospel. They do this by helping people live out the gospel in every area of life. They gather for worship, grow in God’s Word, give to the work, and go into the world.
When you walk into the doors of either of the two campuses of Berean Baptist Church for a weekend gathering, you get the sense that there is a rich history of trusting in God’s goodness and a hunger for the gospel. Senior Pastor Wes Feltner is a solid communicator, with an exegetical style of preaching, adding humor and clear application to deep dives into scripture and theology.
Over the last 4-5 years, Berean Baptist Church has seen a steady climb in attendance and engagement of the church, adding services and planning campuses in response to the growth. They currently average 3500 on a weekend, which is up 25% from last year. They are doing the hard work evaluating the organizational structure, building and parking limitations, volunteer engagement, systems and processes, and strategic planning for the future.
