About Us

Harbor United Methodist Church was formed in 1996 by Pastor Camille Yorkey and a small group of local residents with the support of the North Carolina Conference of the United Methodist Church. They believed a new church was needed in the growing Monkey Junction area of Wilmington. After months of phone calls and organizing, Harbor began, first worshiping at Myrtle Grove Middle School, and then moving into a newly built sanctuary on Masonboro Loop Road. Our identity has developed over the years as a warm and welcoming family for all ages and a place for deep spiritual growth with Christ. We are an active, vibrant, and growing congregation seeking to be a beacon of God’s hope and love in our community and world.

Harbor’s Vision

We envision a Harbor that continues to sail into the ocean of possibility. We envision a Harbor powered by the winds of the Holy Spirit, continuing to move us into unchartered waters. Harbor’s future lies in God’s imagination, and we’re excited to see how God continues to use our church to impact the world.
We will discover God’s possibilities for Harbor by faithfully
…tending to the wounds of the brokenhearted.
…setting aside judgment for acceptance.
…feeding hungry souls the Bread of Life.
…proclaiming the fullness of God’s generosity.
…praising the name of Christ through our lives.
…and striving to help people discover the depths of God’s love.
Our future excites us because it’s greater than our imagination. It lies in the vast ocean beyond the horizon. Harbor’s sails are up, we’ve caught the winds of the Holy Spirit, and with faith as our compass, we’re Boldly Sailing into God’s Possibilities.
