Rev. Keith Vessell


Meet Pastor Keith

Senior pastor at Hillsboro United Methodist Church

Hello! I am happy you found your way to my page. As of July 1, 2017 I have the privilege of being the Sr. Pastor here at Hillsboro United Methodist. I have been married since 2014 to Rev. Molly Moore and between us we have four children. Alexander Vessell is in college at Truman State University, after spending one year in Americorp. Jillian Vessell is a High school senior in Columbia, MO. Josie Moore is a sophomore and Norah Moore is a 5th grader.

Molly is a Deacon in the United Methodist Church as well as a certified Spiritual Director, Mother and Encourager. While she is Pastoring a 1/4 time at church nearby you will find her involved with Hillsboro UMC too.

I am so excited to be a Pastor at Hillsboro UMC as I grew up in Ste. Genevieve MO just a few miles down I-55. This area is home for me and I hope that will help me have a head start in understanding the area and the issues that many face. I have a passion for mission and feel like God continues to call me to find and the fill the unique gaps in services and needs of specific communities. My dream is to be part of a church that continues to move beyond the physical building in order to build relationships, grow leaders, make new disciples and meet people where they are for the betterment of the community. Also, as you can see from my picture I like to shake things up once in a while.

I hope we meet in person someday very soon. You may find me at local coffee shops just as easy as church. Please feel free to come say hello. Blessings to you!

"But God’s already made it plain how to live, what to do, what God is looking for in men and women. It’s quite simple: Do what is fair and just to your neighbor, be compassionate and loyal in your love, And don’t take yourself too seriously— take God seriously." Micah 6:8
