Barb joined our staff team in 2012 and believes it is one of the best decisions she’s ever made.
Before coming to Five Stones, Barb spent 12 years in student ministry. She loved working with students and leaders, and that’s where she realized her passion for loving on volunteers – she is amazed by our volunteers every week! She enjoys working with our team coaches to equip and empower them to lead their volunteer teams. Barb has the gift of hospitality and a flair for decorating. She loves the details of making all our events look just right.
Barb was born in Florida but lived most of her life in New Jersey and New York before relocating to Charlotte in 1995. She has four wonderful grown children, Kelly, Jim, Kate, and Dennis; two beautiful daughters-in-law, Rian and Grace, and an awesome son-in-law, Keith (who is also part of the Five Stones Worship Team). Her grandkids are the joys of her life – Kasey, Kara, Conner, Isaiah, Elijah, Annabelle, and Ezekiel. Barb doesn’t wear dresses, and she doesn’t wear black, so you’ll never find her in a little black dress. She has an annual baking day with her family during the holidays, so make sure you’re around to enjoy those famous peanut butter balls!
