The Rev. Dr. Kimberleigh Buchanan is pastor of Pilgrimage United Church of Christ in Marietta, GA.

Kimberleigh Buchanan has served Pilgrimage as its pastor since June of 2001. While her denominational roots are Southern Baptist, Kim has found the United Church of Christ to be a very welcoming denomination and an excellent denominational home.

After completing her Master of Divinity degree at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, Kim moved to Atlanta to pursue doctoral studies at Emory University. In May of 2004, Kim received her PH.D. in Preaching and Education.

Kim's philosophy of ministry is firmly grounded in the good news of God's love for every person. “Everything we do as a church — from worship, to education, to missions work, even to times of recreation — everything we do must be grounded in belief in and practice of the radical inclusiveness of God's love for ALL people,” Kim says.

Kim is married to the Rev. Dr. Allen Mullinax. They live in Woodstock, Georgia.

The Rev. Dr. Kimberleigh Buchanan (UCC)

What a wonderful story!  A blind man, forced to beg because of his disability, hears that Jesus is coming.  He shouts out, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!"  Jesus hears him, calls him, heals him.  "Immediately, the man regains his sight and follows Jesus."
