Dave Barr was called to begin serving at Crosspointe Church in July of 2019. He has dedicated his life to studying and teaching God’s Word and caring for others. Romans 12:1-2 has given his life focus and guided him since his teen years.
I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
Pastor Dave responded to the Gospel and was baptized at 8 years of age. He committed his life to serving God in the church on the way home from a youth missions’ trip to Mexico. After graduating from High School, he enrolled at Biola University. He earned a bachelor’s degree in Christian Education at Biola in ’83 and a Master’s in Christian Education from Talbot Theological Seminary in ’84. He was Ordained by Evangelical Free Church of America in 2002.
Over the years, He has served as a Christian Education Director, Educational Ministries, Adult Ministries and Shepherding Pastors as well as Senior Pastor. In addition, he has taught at a Christian Middle School and public elementary school.
Dave met his wife Sara at church. They were married June 2, 1979. God has blessed them with two beautiful daughters, Rachel and Heidi, and five grandkids. Sara has been teaching for 30+ years (currently Kindergarten).
Dave and Sara love anything that involves their grandkids, gardening, camping and dating each other. Dave also loves basketball (lifelong Laker fan) and cataloguing his basketball card collection.
