Dr. Robert Magee

Dr. Robert W. Magee served as Interim Pastor of Northminster Presbyterian Church in the past and since that time he has continued reaching out to our congregation during times of change. And so once again, he is faithfully serving Northminster as Interim Pastor. Dr. Bob (as we call him) graduated from Culver-Stockton College, holds a Master of Divinity degree from Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa and a Doctorate from St. Paul School of Theology in Kansas City, Missouri. He has served Missouri Christian churches in St. Charles, Sedalia, Mexico, Kansas City, Kansas and North Kansas City. He also has served the Christian Church in Kansas as Associate Regional Minister, served on the Board of Trustees at Culver-Stockton College and was previously a Board member and Chairman of the Trustees of the Missouri School of Religion. Currently, he serves on the Board of Trustees for North Kansas City Hospital.

Office Administrator

Teri VanGilder

As office administrator, Teri keeps us organized. She handles the daily tasks and keeps us moving forward as we work to serve God within our congregation and in the community.

It’s fair to say that Teri’s roots are deeply planted in our church community. She began attending Northminster at age eight, growing up in the church, and raising her own family here, as well. She began working in the office in 2005, and has been a blessing to us each day. You can count on Teri help find the information you’re looking for.

Church Librarian

Mary Greenup

Mary has organized four church libraries and Northminster is fortunate to have her in charge of ours. “I owe my sister for giving me the love of books and reading. Long before I ever started school she would take me to the library. Books and libraries became magical to me.” Mary’s two favorite Christian books are In His Steps by Charles Sheldon and Not My Will by Francena Arnold.

Nursery Attendants

Krisa Spero-Hernandez

Our Nursery Attendants are a big part of the Northminster Family. Our nursery is available from 9:15 AM through the end of Worship and cares for children from infant through kindergarten. Both of our attendants are CPR certified, well-versed in childcare and just fun to be around.
