Church Elders

Pastor Todd Chipman


Todd Chipman was reared in a Christian home but was not converted until his college days at the University of Nebraska. Upon conversion, Todd sensed God’s call to ministry. God developed Todd’s teaching gifts through completion of a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from the University of Nebraska.
After teaching elementary school for two years at Lincoln Christian School in Lincoln, Nebraska, Todd sensed a burden for pastoral ministry. Todd then served as an Associate Pastor for two years in Scottsbluff, Nebraska. During this pastoral work, God burdened Todd for the need to have a better grasp of the Bible, ultimately leading Todd and his family to Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kansas City, Missouri. In 2005 Todd graduated with the M-Div and Master of Arts in Biblical Languages, and in 2014 with the Ph.D. in New Testament.
Since 2001 Todd has served as the Pastor-Teacher of The MCC, leading the Discipleship ministry.
Todd has worked to develop leadership for each area of our ministry so that we can all use our spiritual gifts and experience the joys of building the Church. Todd places a high value on service in the church, noting that the New Testament Church glorifies God as each member is involved in serving God (Ephesians 4: 11-16). As well as Pastoral leadership at The MCC, Pastor Todd is Associate Professor of Biblical Studies at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary where his research interests include Second Temple Judaism and Greek grammar. He is the author of ScriptureStoryline, a Biblical theology Bible study program, available at ScriptureStoryline.com.
Pastor Todd and his wife Julie are the parents of seven children and advocate for foster care and adoption ministries. The Chipman’s enjoy reading, following Kansas City sports and summer vacations in the Rocky Mountains.

Pastor Adam Anderson


Pastor Adam is a charter member of the Masters Community Church. He is a musician and serves in leading our musical worship and also leads the prayer ministry at the MCC. He completed his pastoral internship in the fall of 2002 and was ordained at that time. He is “bi-vocational” as he is also the owner of a small home improvement company, A.L.A. Remodeling Services, LLC.

Adam’s desire is to see others grow in Christ through being transformed by the beauty and grace of God. His ministry is aimed at glorifying Christ through prayer, teaching, and musical worship. (1Cor 10:31; Eph 5:19-20; 1Thess 5:17)

Adam occasionally ministers to our congregation through preaching and often teaches during our “Equipping Hour”, and leads one of our home bible study groups (Master’s Community Groups) each week as well as other events and ministry opportunities through the calendar year.

Adam came to Christ at the age of 22. He met Julia in college while studying music. He and Julia were married in 1995 and have two boys, Jaden and Ethan, and one girl, Elise. Adam’s interests include biblical and systematic theology, apologetics, instrumental music, golf, and carpentry. Adam seeks to continue his education, and is looking forward to God’s blessing in the growth of MCC.

Ministry Leaders

Brandon Yates – Fellowship Ministry Leader

Brandon Yates came to the Master’s Community Church in 2001. In search of a church that upheld and taught the sovereignty of God in all things, Brandon came to The MCC and joined soon after. He has served as leader of the fellowship ministry since 2005. The influence of expository preaching has had a major impact on Brandon’s life and has helped him to see and understand the importance of the doctrine of fellowship to the church. Brandon’s passion is now to help build up and equip God’s people in the area of Biblical fellowship through teaching, themcc.org, preaching, organizing fellowship meals, and other special events. Brandon also leads the MCC Prison ministry, and preaches about once a month at the maximum security chapel at the Lansing Correctional Facility.

Brandon owns and operates a small electrical construction company here in the Kansas City area. He is married to Julie. They have a son – Carson, and two daughters, Averie and Vera.
