Michael Barnard


     Michael joined the team as youth minister in January 2016. He received a Bachelor of Arts in Religion and Mathematics from Baylor University and is pursuing a Master of Divinity from Truett Seminary. He felt God’s call on his life to minister to youth when he was 18 years old.

     Michael enjoys spending time with family and friends, music, playing games, and cheering on the Baylor Bears. He loves the Waco area, but wishes there were a nearby mountain to ski down.

     God has used Proverbs 3:5-6 many times to direct and encourage Michael during his life. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not in your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.”
