Where I Grew Up: Overland Park, Kansas
Education: BA in Communication, University of Arkansas at Fayetteville
Spouse: Samantha (Sam) Barnes
Why Fellowship?: In addition to the fantastic sense of authentic community that you see all of the place and throughout every ministry, I love the mission of the church which drives all we do; that idea of inviting others into God’s story which is so much bigger than any story we could have on our own, raising up, and releasing them as influencers into their community and the world. God is doing so much here at Fellowship and it’s exciting to be a part of!
Favorite Music: Soundtracks from epic movies, Deathcab, Iron & Wine, Chris Isaak.
Something I’ve Always Wanted To Do: Ride motorcycles to the Grand Canyon with my dad.
Most Interesting Thing You May Not Know About Me: I relentlessly pursued my wife before wearing her down to start dating me. Although the exact number of times she told me no is still debated, she was well worth the wait!
Where I grew up:
BBA in Finance, University of Central Arkansas (2011)
MA in Christian Leadership, Dallas Theological Seminary (Current)
I found Fellowship during a very formative time of my life, namely 18-24. During that time, Fellowship became a spiritual family to me and equipped me to live the life of faith. I am excited to be back at Fellowship ministering to 18-25 year olds, and sharing the message that a life walking with Christ is the best and most fulfilling life imaginable.
