Pastor of Discipleship & Outreach

Andrew McDaniel

Andrew was born and raised in Chattanooga, Tennessee. While pursuing his undergraduate degree at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, the Lord saved Andrew out of a life of cultural Christianity. Soon after, Andrew responded to God’s call to preach and teach the Gospel with a specific burden for those living a nominal faith. While finishing his B.A. in Religion and Philosophy at UTC, Andrew met his wife, Laura. Andrew spent two years after college interning at his local church with college students. Once he and Laura were married in the Spring of 2020, they moved to Washington, D.C. where Andrew served as a church planting resident for two years. In July of 2022, Andrew was ordained into the ministry when Pillar Church of Washington DC commissioned him to help plant Pillar Church of San Antonio. He is currently pursuing an MDiv at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.

John Turner

John Turner was an elder at Pillar San Antonio but in June of 2024 we commissioned he and his family to move to Killeen to plant a church. We are now supporting the Turner family as they work to make Jesus known and plant a healthy church in Killeen, TX. John came to faith in Christ in 2001 and God called him to ministry in 2005, but it wasn't until he retired from the Air Force in 2013 that he was able to enter ministry full-time. He and Angie met while serving together in the Air Force and have been married for almost 27 years. They have three children: Georgia, Diego, and Caleb. While serving as an Associate Pastor of a Baptist Church in San Antonio, God began calling John and Angie into church planting. They came to Pillar SA in January of 2023 to participate in the church planting residency before planting in Killeen. John holds a B.S. degree in Business from Wayland Baptist University and an MDiv from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY.
