Associate Pastor Connection & Care


I have been a member of FBC Wilmington’s staff since 1990. I served as the Associate Pastor of First Baptist Drexel, NC prior to coming to joining the FBC-Wilmington team. Lisa and I were married in 1983. Our two grown children, Jonathan and Megan are married and we are blessed with a granddaughter, Everette Elizabeth Barbour and two grandsons, Brooks Phillip Everette and James Douglas Barbour III.

Fun Facts

Education: UNC Pembroke, Bachelor’s Degree; Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, M.Div.; Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond, D.Min.

A scripture that is meaningful to me:  I Corinthians 13: 1-8 is a passage I remember my mother reading to me from my earliest days. I attempt to live it out as best I can each day in my thoughts and actions.

My favorite restaurant in Wilmington is . . . Choosing just one is hard! I have to say good friends at Parchies, hugs at PT’s, date nights at Cape Fear Seafood and family celebrations at the Port City Chop House.

My favorite activity in town is . . . My wife and I love to spend time on the water with our adult children, their spouses, and our granddaughter.  We also enjoy attending UNCW athletic events together.
