Steven Barnes, who has been the Pastor at First Presbyterian Church for a little over two and a half years will soon be relocating.

Barnes’ wife was offered a job opportunity in the Atlanta area.

“It’s just something we can’t pass up as a family,” said Barnes. “I very much support her career as much as she’s supported me over the years. She’s followed me from church to church and now it’s my turn.”
