There are currently four members of the Pastoral Team at Bethany: Kevin McGhee, our Senior Pastor, (please click on his name to learn more about him); Tim Quigg, Director of Youth Ministries; Ann McGhee, Minister of Community Life; and Bobby Wheeler, Director of Cross Cultural Ministries. Our church family is also served by a dedicated administrative staff. You can read brief biographies and contact any member of our team using the links below.
Tim Quigg hails from Southern California, but has been living in Maryland since 1993 when the Army sent him here. He and his wife, Debby, came to Bethany Community Church shortly after they were married in 1994. Tim became a youth ministry intern in 1999 while he finished his degree in youth ministry leadership, graduating from Liberty University in 2004. He joined our staff in 2003, and has been working full time as the Director of Youth Ministry since 2007. Tim and Debby have two children, Owen and Shannon. Tim enjoys Star Wars, U2 and the Boston Red Sox!
Community Life Ministries
Ann has served in ministry for over three decades; as a minister in three churches and an Adjunct Professor at Capitol Bible Seminary and Washington Bible College. She holds a Masters in Biblical Studies from Talbot Seminary. In 2006, we asked her to give oversight to our discipleship processes as Minister of Community Life. She loves “doing life” with her lifelong love Kevin, (our Senior Pastor) and hanging out with her two adult daughters, Bryden and Kelsey. In her spare time, you will find her sitting on the porch, taking pictures of the birds and other wildlife that frequent their backyard.
Director of Cross Cultural Ministries
Bobby has local roots; but his spiritual roots run clear out to Kodiak, Alaska! He left Maryland for the Coast Guard Academy, graduating in 1984. Bobby served two tours in Kodiak and two tours in Washington DC. Two momentous things happened while he was in Alaska: He came to faith in Jesus Christ, then meet and married his wife, Shari. The Coast Guard brought the Wheelers to the DC area as a family of four. Bobby, Shari, Triston and Laura settled in Laurel and plugged into Bethany. The Lord grew in Bobby a passion for discipleship, and he eventually became a pastoral intern at Bethany in 1997. He left the service in 1998 continuing as a pastoral intern and working as a sign language interpreter in the Washington Metro Area. In December 2000, Bobby was commissioned to pastoral service. He served part time on the pastoral staff for 10 years as the Director, Deaf Ministry and now serves part time as the Director, Cross Cultural Ministries.
Our pastoral team is ably supported by our administrative staff.
Jean was one of the founding members of Bethany and has been our office manager since the very earliest days of the church. Jean is the mother of three and grandmother of five.
Frances Gordon was married to one of our founding members, our much loved Frank, who graduated to heaven a few years ago. Frances has worked with money all her life, including managing a credit union; and we are very blessed to have her oversee the church’s finances each week.
