Barry and a team planted what has become Grace Church almost 20 years ago. He and his wife Suzanne have had 11 children (one of which has passed). Originally from Syracuse, New York, Barry began his professional career as the Director of Medical Information Systems at a VA Medical Center in his home state. He eventually transitioned into work as a Management Consultant for the Office of the Chief of Staff, putting together a program measuring Quality Assurance and Utilization Review for the same VA Medical Center. Coinciding with this, he spent the next four years studying God's word in seminary with his final year being given to a church planting internship at Bethesda Baptist Church in Indianapolis, IN. Prior to planting Grace Church in Mt. Pleasant, MI, Barry served in another church for 5 years as an Associate Pastor of Youth and Family Ministries. He has committed his life to doing whatever he, his family, and Grace Church can do to make disciples of Jesus while fulfilling Jesus' Great Commission.
Barry enjoys reading Scripture, prayer and studying the culture (incl. sports, politics, history) and its ramifications upon the life of the Christ-follower, the church. He enjoys working out and learning whatever he can about living a healthy lifestyle.
