Rev. John Daniels III

Executive Pastor


I served at FBC Waynesville, NC for 21 years before coming to FBC Wilmington in 2015.  My wife, Melinda, and I were college sweethearts and have been married for over thirty years. We have two adult children, Erin and John, IV (Jay)

Fun Facts

Education: Carson-Newman College, B.A. in Religion; Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, M.A. in Religious Education

A scripture that is meaningful to me: Philippians 4:8 which says, “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”

My favorite restaurant in Wilmington is . . . Rucker Johns, for the wide variety on the menu and the live music on Tuesday nights.

My favorite vacation destination is . . . any cruise, anywhere, any time.
