12-5-2012 Gil Webb Accepts VP position for Mid-America Union
Pastor Gil F. Webb is the new vice president for administration of the Mid-America Union, elected by the Executive Committee at its regularly scheduled meeting on November 15. He has now accepted the position and will transition from current responsibilities for the Central States Conference as ministerial director and an assistant to the president. He has also been serving, since February 2010, as pastor of Linwood Boulevard SDA Temple in Kansas City, Missouri.
A native of San Francisco, Webb graduated from Golden Gate Academy and went on to Oakwood College (now Oakwood University). After earning a degree in Theology, he entered pastoral ministry in October 1976. The next year he married Patricia Y. Mann, at that time a member of his Linwood Church family. The Webbs are parents of two adult children, Gil Webb II and Chalonda Webb, with one grandson, Gil Webb III.

Elder Webb has served his entire career in Central States Conference as a pastor of 14 churches in five states—Iowa, Colorado, Nebraska, Kansas and Missouri. He has also been a department director for youth, health and temperance, education, and stewardship.
Thomas L. Lemon, president of the Mid-America Union, states: “We are delighted to welcome Elder Webb to our administrative team.  He brings more than 3 1/2 decades of experience to the leadership table.  In addition to pastoring churchesacross our Union for the Central States Conference, he has led the Youth Department, served as Ministerial Director and currently serves as one of the CSC assistants to the President.  He is highly respected for his quiet and thoughtful wisdom.  As I explored the possibilities across the North American Division, Elder Webb's name came up again and again.  And having watched his ministry from a bit of a distance for more than 15 years myself, it just seems like the right fit.”
Pastor Webb has international ministry experience, including a speaking tour in Tanzania where he preached and also conducted marriage and family seminars. His passions are his wife, evangelistic outreach and ministry to youth and families. "I just want to do God's will" is the motto he lives by. His mission statement is "full commitment to the Great Commission until its conclusion." 
For hobbies, Webb raises African Cichlids and enjoys bowling, racquetball, tennis, ping pong and golf.
Pastor Webb fills the position vacated by Maurice R. Valentine II last July when elected president of the Central States Conference.
