The Rev. Dr. Kimball Coburn, Servant Evangelist
Like circuit riders of the last two centuries, Kimball Coburn travels
wherever he is called. He is appointed in the United Methodist church
to a ministry of Evangelism in the Prophetic Spirit by his bishop, Bishop
Mary Swenson. He is in his 32nd year of doing evangelism and has traveled
to 13 states where his warmth and contagious spirit has been widely accepted.
Kimball is man with an exceptional gift. He speaks of how we can live out the Gospel in our daily lives. He is as inspiring with a guitar on his arm singing a song of faith as he is with a bible in his hand making a witness for the “Good News” in a world hungry for hope and healing. He preaches God’s ‘Call to Be The Church’ like never before.
The Rev. Dr. David McCreary of the Nebraska Conference of the United Methodist Church says: “Kimball
Coburn has reinvented an evangelistic style for the twenty-first century mainline
church. He blends the old and the new in music, worship and theology to
touch heart, head and will.”
In the Prophetic Spirit!
For over three decades the Rev. Dr. Kimball Coburn
has ventured out in faith to serve God in a way that challenges his hearers To
Be The Church...to feed the hungry, share with the poor, respond
to the cry of the powerless and hurting of our world and work for peace.
He prefers to be called a servant evangelist and his passion for compassion
is genuinely powerful. United Methodist minister, Rev. Rob Calderhead
says: “Kimball Coburn is the epitome of the 21st century evangelist.
He is that ever rarer combination of deep faith, contemporary concern
and complete integrity. He has a passion for God, a passion for people
and a passion for the world. He is a modern prophet in the best sense
of the world.
Kimball's wife, Pam, shares a wonderful
ministry and love for children. Through Bible study, storytelling and arts
and crafts she helps them to discover they are Called To Be The Church
too. The Coburns' love for children and youth come naturally as they are the parents of four grown children and grandparents of six grandchildren.
Kimball often includes in his services music that he and his children have written, recorded and produced through the years for his ministry. They use their voices, their instruments and their great spirit to communicate God’s love.
