Pastor Gil F. Webb has been serving in the Central States Conference as ministerial director and an assistant to the president. Since February 2010 he has also been pastor of Linwood Boulevard Temple in Kansas City, Missouri.

A native of San Francisco, Webb graduated from Golden Gate Academy and went on to Oakwood College (now Oakwood University). After earning a degree in Theology, he entered pastoral ministry in October 1976. Elder Webb has served his entire career in Central States Conference as a pastor of 14 churches in five states—Iowa, Colorado, Nebraska, Kansas and Missouri. He has also been a department director for youth, health and temperance, education, and stewardship.

Thomas L. Lemon, president of the Mid-America Union, states: “We are delighted to welcome Elder Webb to our administrative team. He brings more than 30 years of experience to the leadership table. In addition to pastoring churches across our union for the Central States Conference, he has led the Youth Department, served as ministerial director and currently serves as one of the CSC assistants to the president. He is highly respected for his quiet and thoughtful wisdom. As we explored the possibilities across the North American Division, Elder Webb’s name came up again and again. And having watched his ministry from a bit of a distance for more than 15 years myself, it just seems like the right fit.”

Pastor Webb has international ministry experience, including a speaking tour in Tanzania where he preached and also conducted marriage and family seminars. “I just want to do God’s will” is the motto he lives by. His mission statement is “full commitment to the Great Commission until its conclusion.”
