Dean & Rector
Timothy Kimbrough joined the Christ Church Cathedral staff as Dean and Rector on November 1, 2009, having previously served St. David’s Episcopal Church, Laurinburg, and the Church of the Holy Family, Chapel Hill, in the Diocese of North Carolina. He is a graduate of Duke University, (Bachelor of Arts, 1979), of the Duke University Divinity School (Master of Divinity, 1983), and of the General Theological Seminary (Anglican Studies, 1984).
His interests in liturgy, music, and canon law led him to be a six-time deputy to the General Convention of the Episcopal Church from the Diocese of North Carolina. He has also served the Episcopal Church as a member of the General Convention’s committees on the Constitution and on Liturgy and Music, as a member of the Joint Committee on the Philippine Covenant (JCPC), and recently as a member of the Executive Council.
His musical settings of hymns, service music, choral anthems, and children’s songs have been published by Abingdon, GBGMusik, and Hinshaw Music, Inc., with several of his psalm antiphon settings appearing in the United Methodist Hymnal.
Dean Kimbrough and his wife, Darlene, are proud parents of four, three grown sons (Joshua, Caleb, and Otis) and a daughter, Hannah, who is a college student.
