Rev. Berry French –
Campus Minister

Berry joined PCM as our campus minister in August 2020. A native of Lumberton, North Carolina, he attended the University of North Carolina, graduating in 2003 with degrees in both Economics and Recreation and Leisure Studies. But between freshman dorm move-in and donning a cap and gown, he found a home here at PCM.

 After two years of camp and conference ministry and extensive international travel, Berry attended Union Presbyterian Seminary in Richmond.  From there, he has served as an associate pastor at both White Memorial Presbyterian Church in Raleigh as well as Black Mountain Presbyterian Church near Montreat.  In 2017, Berry and Katie, their daughter Aubry, and son Will embarked on a two-year journey sailing through the Caribbean and the North American Eastern Seaboard, visiting 12 Caribbean countries in their own 43’ sailboat from Grenada to Maine.

 Berry loves the outdoors, hiking, camping, biking, gardening, and playing outside with his kids. If you’re hoping to hear more about PCM, email Berry at

Kim Rubish –
Pastoral Resident

Kim spent three years as PCM’s Seminary Intern before coming on board as PCM’s first Pastoral Resident. Kim is serving as PCM’s Resident from August 2021 through May 2023, and could not be more delighted to be working with PCM.

Kim was born and raised in Chapel Hill, so her ties to the Tarheels run deep. After graduating from UNCW with English and Psychology degrees in 2017, Kim returned to Chapel Hill to pursue her Master of Social Work at UNC, and her Master of Divinity at Duke (talk about a house divided.) Kim interned with PCM for three of her four years of grad school, but also served in internships with Reality Ministries, SAFEchild NC, Essential Counseling & Therapeutic Services, and UNC Medical Center. Kim particularly loves forming relationships, providing pastoral care, and integrating trauma-informed care into her work.

Kim loves hiking and backpacking, playing any organized sport she can find (currently kickball and ultimate frisbee), queer theology, playing board games, and grabbing coffee and lunch with students!
