Jim Kinnebrew grew up in Dunnellon, FL, where his family attended the local Presbyterian church.  At age 15 he was invited to a revival at the First Baptist Church and responded to the Gospel invitation.  Soon afterward he answered God’s call to the ministry.  He has served as pastor at churches in Arkansas, Missouri, Florida, and Georgia. 

In addition to his ministry at Luther Rice and periodic conferences, Kinnebrew serves bi-vocational pastors and other busy Gospel ministers through a free E-Newsletter called TentMakers Tips.  He and his wife, Sandy, are the parents of three grown sons and two lovely "daughters-in-love."  They enjoy camping, swimming, reading, and watching good old movies together.
