John Kimbrough

Minister of Modern Worship


I served as a Worship Leader at The Church at Sterchi Hills, and as the Development Officer & Grant Writer at Carson Newman College. I joined the FBC Wilmington team in 2017. My grandparents were music missionaries in Brazil and my mom’s father was a church minister his whole life.  My wife Muriel and I met in college.  We recently adopted a dog named Perdy.

Fun Facts

Education: Carson Newman College, Bachelors in Music Theory and Voice; Carson Newman, M.A. in Applied Theology

A scripture that is meaningful to me: Mark 2:17 “When Jesus heard this, he told them, ‘Healthy people don’t need a doctor—sick people do. I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners.’”

My favorite restaurant in Wilmington is . . . Peking Gourmet. Call me unrefined but hey – so cheap. So good. And they deliver!

My favorite hobby is rock climbing.
