Barb encourages us to join God’s mission of reconciling our neighbors to Jesus, through neighborhood engagement and building relationships. Barb has a heart for those who live on the margins—people who are physically, emotionally, or spiritually hungry. She is amazed that the same Spirit of God who was in Jesus dwells in us to bring Good News to the poor, heal the sick, give sight to the blind, and free the oppressed (Luke 4:18–19). Barb is always ready to participate in God’s work by going on a neighborhood prayer walk, serving food to the hungry, or going wherever the Spirit leads. She is open to new ways UPC can serve its neighbors, so let her know where the Spirit may be leading you. Barb has a Ph.D. in Physiology and M.Div from Fuller, and likes talking about science and faith, eating ice cream, swimming, and cheering for the Green Bay Packers.
