Kim Beihl

Worship Leader
Email: kim@rhythmcitychurch.com

Kim has been leading worship for Rhythm City since the church’s launch in 2013. Prior to that Kim was a member of the Our Savior Worship Band leading worship there for over 7 years and she also began writing worship songs for the church during that time. One of Kim’s favorite moments of worship is when she can hear the voices of the church singing the praises of the Lord above everything else! She feels blessed to have an amazing team of singers and musicians in the Rhythm City Band and she looks forward to continue to find ways to share the Gospel with the city of Nashville through music! Kim celebrated her 10th wedding anniversary with her husband, Brian, last August!
