Graham Kendrick (born on 2 August 1950, Blisworth, Northamptonshire) is a prolific British Christian singer-songwriter and worship leader. He is the son of Baptist pastor, the Revd. M. D. Kendrick. He now lives in Croydon and is a former member of Ichthus Christian Fellowship. Together with Roger Forster, Gerald Coates and Lynne Green, he was a founder of March for Jesus.
Kendrick began his songwriting career in the late sixties. His most enduring accomplishment is his authorship of the words and music for the song, “Shine, Jesus, Shine“, which is among the most widely heard songs in contemporary Christian worship worldwide. His other songs have been primarily used by worshippers in Britain. Kendrick is a co-founder of the March for Jesus. He received a Dove Award in 1995 for his international work. In 2000, Brunel University awarded Kendrick an honorary doctorate in Divinity (‘DD’) in “recognition of his contribution to the worship life of the Church”. He was awarded another DD in May 2008, from Wycliffe College in Toronto, Canada
