Description of Organization

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.
Berean has seen a steady climb in attendance and engagement of the church, adding services and planning campuses in response to the growth. The former Lead Pastor was a solid communicator, with an exegetical style of preaching, adding humor and clear application to deep dives into scripture and theology. This has attracted more and more people to Berean over the years. In the transition of leadership, the church has remained steadfast. The interim leadership is comprised of the Executive Pastor, the Elder Board, and the well-loved previous Senior Pastor, Roger Thompson. They are committed to serving the congregation with integrity and clarity. 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.
