Pastor Lee McKinney
Lead Pastor

Lee McKinney is the lead pastor here at NCF. Lee and his family have attended NCF from the very first meeting in an old bread factory in Southern Pines in April of 2001. NCF and Lee, have been through lots of changes since then and he is now very glad to be the lead pastor of such a vibrant, relevant and growing church.

Lee’s prayer is that we at NCF worship God as HE desires to be worshiped. NCF has a motto; Ancient Faith for Modern Life. Lee feels that his life’s goal is to share the word of God with you in such a way that this ancient book will be relevant to your lives every day. He also prays that you are always encouraged each time we gather to sing, pray, give, share and turn to God’s word.

Lee loves spending time with his wife Nita and his 2 daughters, Amber and Jessica. He would like to get to know you better and if you would like to talk to Lee please use the available information to contact him. We hope you will contact Pastor Lee today!

Joe Keen has been serving as the Family Life Pastor since October 2018. He is married to

Joe’s burden and calling is to be a watchmen and a prophetic voice in this
generation calling people to repent, endure, and finish well as we await our Lord’s
“Jesus told them, “Don’t let anyone mislead you” – Matthew 24:4
“Those who know your name trust in you, for you, O Lord, do not abandon those
who search for you.” – Psalm 9:10
