Barnett’s testimony takes him from street fighter, to father, to pastor. He has served in public ministry for the past 33 years. He is a powerhouse preacher with a strong prophetic edge. His life with Christ has been a journey of tragedy and triumph. He lost his wife, the heart of his family, to cancer at 39. Several years later his daughter, Latoma, was challenged with Stage 4 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, but she received a miraculous healing. Sixteen years later she remains cancer free and is employed as a nurse practitioner.
Barnett encourages, comforts and walks in compassion because he moves in God’s heart for His people. Touched by his ministry, men and women rise to become pillars in the community. He views his call as, “To do everything I can through Christ in me to cause God’s people to go forward in victory.”
What is the word Barnett is hearing for men in this season?
“The word of God is for men to rise up. Will the real men stand up?,” Barnett asked. “Real men are different than ordinary men – they are accountable, responsible and dependable. And they are not afraid to rise and trust God’s leading. In these last days God is going to show Himself strong like never in history to make a statement so those who are going to believe will believe.”
Barnett is the associate pastor and director of Mentoring Godly Men (MGM) at the Cincinnati Bible Way Church. He resides in Cincinnati and has eight grown children and 13 grandchildren.
