First Baptist Church of Tryon
Sunday, November 19, 2017

John Spinks was born and reared in Charlotte, NC where he attended St. John’s Baptist Church.  He has been a friend of Tryon First Baptist since 1975 and joined in 1998 when he moved to this area.

Like all good Baptist sons John graduated from Wingate College (when it was a small two year junior college) and Mars Hill College with a degree in Art Education.

 He was in the education field for a few years in the 1970s but most of his adult career was spent in property management. 

John is recently married and has inherited four grown children and three grandchildren.
