Church Leader

As the Church Leader at McKnight Church I have grown to love the people God has brought to our Church. My name is Gary Rawlinson and with the help of my wife Lori we have worked in almost every area of the Church here. I have been a member of this congregation since I was a young adult and could not imagine worshiping the Lord at any other church.

We welcome all visitors and encourage anyone who does not have a church family to visit. We offer so many different worship groups, from a youth ministry to men’s breakfast and women’s bible studies. Our Church is always looking for new people to help out and we would love for that to be you.

Youth Minister

I wanted to take this time to introduce myself. I am Carrie Duncan and my family and I would love to have you visit our church.  Our youth program has seen tremendous growth over the past few years and you can truly feel the presence of our savior in the building and through our youth.

My husband Jess and our two sons Tate and Cade are very excited to get the opportunity to meet with you. We encourage visitors and our youth are very welcoming to new students.


We always strive to keep our youth involved with our community and we hope that you will be a part of this soon. ​

Staff Directory

Our Church takes pride in its leadership. Even though our church has many Christian leaders and could not function to do Gods work without every member, we do want to introduce you to just a few in the below pictures. 


Hello. My name is Phillip Jarrell and I would love to welcome you to our church. Please allow me to tell you a little about myself and my family. I have been married to my childhood sweetheart, Jeren for 25 years. We have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My wife and I have been in the ministry for 20 years, and are so thankful that the Lord led us to McKnight CMC. We are so excited about what God is doing with and through our church.


McKnight is filled with people who love the Lord and love one another and are working together to build the Kingdom of Heaven through the various ministries and outreaches within our church.


We believe that individuals are worth investing in, for when individuals grow, churches grow, and when churches grow, our communities prosper and flourish. My family and I are actively committed to ministering to the needs of not only our church family, but the needs of our community as well, and we invite you to join together with us, as we seek to draw closer to our Lord Jesus Christ, and as we work together to benefit the Kingdom of Heaven. 


May God richly and abundantly bless you,


Bro. Phillip Jarrell
