Reed Barron

YOUNG ADULTS PASTOR

We are so blessed to have Reed and his wife, Sam, back with us at the Dove.  For many years, Reed served as our youth intern.  Then God called him to Davis Street Baptist Church in Sulphur Springs where Reed was instrumental in building a thriving youth ministry.  After several years at Davis Street, we were fortunate enough to be able to partner with Reed and his wife once again.  They are a valuable part of the Dove and we are thrilled to have them on our staff.

We are so excited to have Caleb Stover on our staff officially.  He has served faithfully for many years as our drummer at the church and now he is being used to minister in so many other ways as well.  God has a plan for Caleb and we can't wait to see it unfold.  Caleb currently attends DBU and seeks a career in ministry.
