Barbara is a native Delawarean who loves the outdoors, travel and gathering with family and friends. After high school, Barbara attended Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, graduating with a bachelor's degree in education. After returning home for her junior winter break, she met her soon-to-be husband, Bob, at a college ministry event and they got married a year and half later, in August 1986. After celebrating their one-year anniversary, they packed up and moved to Mesquite, Texas, for Bob’s job. They have firmly planted themselves here since 1987, raising their three children, Lauren, Andrew and Kara. Barbara’s greatest calling in life is to be a wife and mother, but second has been serving in the local church. After teaching for a short while, Barbara felt called to serve in children and preschool ministry. Her experience spans 25 years serving as a preschool director, children’s minister and, now, in local ministries. Barbara has been with c|Life since its inception. You are likely to see Barbara at one of our campuses on Sundays, where she will meet you with a smile and help you find your place at c|Life.
