Let us introduce ourselves to you.

Pastor & Moderator Jim Thyne

I did not set out to be a Presbyterian Minister, but God directed my path, as I believe that He has directed you to this website.

I have been Pastor of Christ Fellowship Church since 2004. Charli, my wife of 30+ years, and I moved to Pinehurst after serving churches in Long Island, NY, Des Moines, IA and Laurens, SC.  I did not “grow up in the church”, but God drew me to Himself through His mercy and grace, leading me to true repentance at the age of 26.  

I enjoy taking walks with my wife, meeting new people, movies and studying history.  We have been blessed with two children, five amazing grandchildren and three very fun rescue kitties:  Sir Wink’s A-Lot, Mr. Snuggles and Faith. 

“We love, because He first loved us.”  1 John 4:19
