Rob Hinman

He added a Masters of Divinity to his undergrad business degree from Wake Forest University and has served three churches, coming to Lenoir Presbyterian Church in 2005. Raised with a passion for special needs children, Rob serves on the Board of Directors of Holy Angels in Belmont (NC), a ministry to the differently-abled.

Brian Kane

Director of Youth Ministries


Brian rejoices to be a husband, father, disciple, and friend. He and his wife, Andrea, are grateful for their two smiley and spunky children: Mabry (3) & Haddon (almost 1). Brian enjoys reading & good coffee (preferably together) and spends too much of his time pondering Star Wars theories and tending to the needs of his overly-dependent hound dog, Karl. He has a Bachelor’s degree in Biblical Studies from Liberty University and is thankful to be pursuing a Master of Divinity at Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte.

Ethan Barnett

Facilities Manager

Ethan Barnett was born and raised in Lenoir. A few years of ministry at a Christian camp in East Tennessee blessed him in October 2016 with marriage to his wife Jessica.  After returning to Lenoir, they began worshipping at LPC.  In Fall 2018, Ethan was employed by Lenoir Pres to manage the facilities with which we have been greatly blessed. Since their arrival here they have been graced with the addition of a terrier named Mel and beautiful baby girl named Isabelle! Ethan thoroughly enjoys deep theological study and discussion, hearing the robust bickering of bible scholars, and gaming of the board and video varieties.
