Gene Theriot

Minister of Education

My wife Martha and I moved to Brandon and joined Meadow Grove in 2008. I’ve served as Minister of Education since 2010. In 1962, I placed my faith in Jesus. He’s made all the difference in my life. He’s forgiven my sin, great as it is, given me a purpose in life far better than any I could have dreamed, and given me an abiding joy through the stuff of life. Prior to coming back to Mississippi, I served for thirty years as a chaplain in the United States Navy. Martha and I are graduates of Mississippi College (1973) and I’m a graduate of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary (1976). I enjoy reading naval history and bicycling. Having traveled extensively, we’re always ready to go again. To contact me, please email me at
