Charity McNeil

Church Secretary / Minister of Children's Ministry

Charity has been full time with Pawhuska First since December 2021 but her history with PFBC predates her fulltime employment. Charity, her husband Brad, and their three kids still in the home came to Pawhuska First in 2018. She followed the passion Jesus gave her and was a key part of relaunching a dissolved Children's Ministry as a volunteer. After seeing a gifting and witnessing her heart and passion for kids, in Dec. 2020, the church brought her on board as paid staff in the role of our part time Children's Minister.   A year later, we had an opening for church secretary and decided to bring Charity on board as full time salaried staff. Her heart for serving and her passion for kids has been a great blessing to the Lord's work through Pawhuska First!
