About Jim

Jim Brinkerhoff was the campus minister of the Auburn Christian Student Center for thirty years. He had attended Auburn University as a student, where he met his wife, Mary, and found his faith in Jesus. After two years of working as a campus minister at Rutgers University, Jim returned to Auburn in January 1984 to serve as the Director of the Auburn Christian Student Center and the Campus Minister for the Auburn Church of Christ.

He worked tirelessly for the kingdom, and led thousands of college students to know Christ more fully. He served the Kingdom of God tirelessly, living out his favorite scripture, "As for us, we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard."

He passed away unexpectedly in December 2013. His wife, Mary, still serves as the activities coordinator of our ministry. Jim is still sorely missed, but his legacy stays with us.
