BOB THOMPSON – Pastor
Pastor Bob’s primary hobbies are his wife, Linda, and Corinth, which is a good thing since Linda is also a colleague on the church staff. He also enjoys reading and various home projects. The Thompsons met at Columbia Bible College (now Columbia International University) where they both graduated with bachelor’s degrees in 1978. Bob later returned to Columbia to earn the Master of Divinity in 1987 and earned the Doctor of Ministry from Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary in 2003. Bob and Linda have three grown children: Philip (Carlie), Cara, and Jeni (Matt), and grandson, Arlo.
PAUL CUMMINGS – Associate Pastor
AMY RINEHULTS – Associate Pastor
Pastor Amy earned her B.A. in Philosophy and Religion at Lenoir-Rhyne University (2008) and her Master of Divinity in Biblical Studies from Gardner-Webb University (2012). Amy was ordained at Corinth and joined the pastoral staff in 2016. Her main areas of responsibility include missions, communications, technology, and administration. In August 2019, Amy began coursework at Duke University and plans to complete her Doctor of Ministry in 2022. In her free time, she enjoys exploring new places especially when that exploration leads to spending time in the mountains.
One of Pastor Amy’s favorite passages of Scripture is Colossians 3:15 “Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.”
