With over 25 years of ministry experience, Barry has provided shepherding care to all ages as a Youth and Family Pastor and as Pastor of Congregational Care, helping those in their times of struggle, doubt and grief. Both as a pastor and a biblical counselor, Barry has helped men, couples, and families, dealing with a wide range of issues such as communication, conflict resolution, addictions, sexual brokenness, and depression.
Barry has a shepherd’s heart and desires to walk alongside people through life’s
challenges. He believes that biblical truth not only helps us to understand the root issues of our problems but also brings hope and healing to our brokenness through the gospel. Barry currently serves as the Pastor of Shepherding and Visitation at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Lancaster, PA. He has an M.Div from Westminster Theological Seminary and received a Doctor of Ministry through Covenant Theological Seminary. A seminar speaker and support group leader, Barry has given talks on his dissertation which focuses on the pastoral care of Christian parents with adult gay children.
Barry has also completed the first level in the CCEF (Christian Counseling and
Educational Foundation) certificate program. He and his wife Margaret have three young adult children. In his spare time, Barry enjoys gardening, swimming, and taking in the beauty of God’s creation.
