Barry Clair

BARRY CLAIR

LEAD PASTOR

He is real. In today’s culture it seems hard to find, but Barry routinely shares the grace, healing, and love God has shown him personally. His transparency combined with his diligent study of scripture compel us to a deeper relationship with Christ. We are blessed by his commitment to his calling and willingness to follow the leading of God.

Barry has instilled values of grace, hope, and courageous faith in our congregation since he became our lead pastor in 2007. He felt his call to ministry at a young age as a preacher’s kid in Wisconsin. When Barry grew up, he pursed a degree in Church Leadership from Southeastern University, married his wife Rosemarie, and went into ministry. After 38 years of marriage and ministry, Barry will tell you, with God the best is yet to come.

One of those bests is grandchildren – okay, family. The Clairs have three married children and two grandchildren. When he’s not entertaining the little ones, he loves to fly his drone and make videos. He’s also a tad obsessed with the Holy Land and coffee – and with coffee in the Holy Land.
