Jim Barnett

Minister to Young Adults

E-mail: jim@prestonroad.org

Jim and his wife, Laurie, have attended Preston Road since 1992. Prior to joining the PRCC Team in 2001, he served as the Vice President of Datebook Publishing. He was led into full-time ministry by his passion for helping college students and young adults find purpose and significance in life through a relationship with Jesus Christ, and helping husbands and fathers be the men that their wives and children need them to be. 

He is a Dallas native who attended Abilene Christian University, where he met Laurie and received a degree in Business Administration. He finds great joy in connecting people who can use business and people skills for Kingdom purposes. Jim is the past President and still serves on the Board of Campus for Christ (national organization of Church of Christ Campus Ministers). In addition, he also serves on the Board of Trustees for several organizations including the Christian Relief Fund, Dallas Christian School, Dallas Housing Crisis Center and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. 

He is an avid football fan but loves any type of competition from board games to basketball and especially golf. Jim and Laurie have been married for 30 years and have two grown children: a daughter (Kennedy) and a son (Jensen).
