Pastor Eric McNeil

After practicing law in Dallas, Texas for 25 years, Pastor Eric gave up his legal career to accept God's call to become the pastor of Mandeville Bible Church in 2015. Eric is fully committed to serving God as a pastor in His church by preaching God’s Word (2 Timothy 4:2), shepherding God’s flock (1 Peter 5:2), and preparing God’s people for works of service, so that the Body of Christ may be built up (Ephesians 4:12).

Eric’s primary goal as pastor of Mandeville Bible Church is to encourage and equip believers to fulfill Jesus’ Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20) by living on mission to reach others with the good news of the Gospel.

Eric was born in Freeport, Texas and grew up in Paducah, Kentucky. He holds an engineering degree from the University of Mississippi, a law degree from Tulane Law School, and a master’s degree in theology from Dallas Theological Seminary.

Eric and his wife, Melissa, were married in 2009. Melissa was born in Shreveport, Louisiana and grew up in Waco, Texas. She is a graduate of Baylor University, and she has previous experience serving in both church staff and parachurch ministry contexts.
