Associate Minister


DSC_0111The Rev. Annie McGilber became a born again Christian Jan. 15, 1995 and she hasn’t looked back. The date is one she will always remember and cherish for it was the day that God pulled her out of the mud and set her feet on the rock of Christ. Since then she has been living out her faith where ever she finds herself. A native Texan, Rev. McGilber moved to Houston at an early age with her family and they settled in the 6th Ward area. She attended schools in the Houston Independent School District (HISD) and was graduated from B.T. Washington High School. She has a long history of being sensitive to the needs of the least, the lost and the last. Annie worked  for 35 years with special needs children at a variety of campuses across Houston. Rev. McGilber has been a member of Brown Chapel for nearly 40 years. She has served in many capacities in the local church including the director of the Young People’s Department, Sunday School teacher and missionary. But in 1999, Rev. McGilber answered God’s call into the ordained ministry. Her passion is missions and outreach. “I feel that they (the homeless, those in prison) need to know that there is a God who loves them,” she said.

Rev. McGilber has been married to Bro. Leo McGilber more than 40 years. She is a mother and a grandmother.
