Rev. John McKinnon & family
On Sunday, September
4, 2011, the Rev. John C. McKinnon began serving as Senior Pastor at Beckley Presbyterian Church.
He and his
family came from New Bern, NC, where John served as Associate Pastor of the First Presbyterian Church for five years
following his graduation from Union Presbyterian Seminary in Richmond, VA. While in New Bern, John's work focused on
the areas of Education, Mission & Outreach, and Fellowship.
When in seminary John served as the Youth Director
at Tuckahoe Presbyterian Church. Prior to seminary he was the Director of Camp Albemarle, a Presbyterian camp and retreat
center on Bogue Sound near Morehead City, NC. While serving as camp director he met the love of his life,
living in Cincinnati and serving as the Executive Director of Wildwood Camp and Conference Center for the Presbytery of Cincinnati
when she met John at a Presbyterian camp director's conference. One year later they returned as husband and wife.
They both share a love for music, theatre, and all
things outdoors. These loves they also share with their daughter Aidan. In 2012 the McKinnon's welcomed their
second child, a baby boy named Ian.
The mission of Beckley Presbyterian Church
is to glorify God through the nurturing and equipping of our congregation to manifest our faith throughout God's creation
with love, joy, hope, and open hearts.
