Staff

The staff at Berean are committed Christians who labor in love to further God's kingdom in Murphysboro, and simply put, our church could not function with these selfless workers. We are very fortunate to have such a wonderful team! They are ready and willing to help anyway they can.  They will pray with you, answer questions, and work with you.  

Keep in mind that they need you as well. Please do not hesitate to volunteer, as an opportunity to connect, even before you are asked. Also, be willing to step up when asked. To volunteer call the church office at 618-684-6601 or click here.     

Troy Humphrey - Senior Minister 

Since coming to Murphysboro andBerean in October 2008, Stacy and I have enjoyed seeing our older sons marry, the birth of our first granddaughter, and the addition of what we affectionately call our 'B' team. 

God placed the call on our lives to become foster/adoptive parents.  With the tremendous support of our family at Berean, we continue to add to our number, making us busy, fulfilled and tired!  And remember in this great relationship with God:  don't look back!
