Pastor Scott Barber
Scott and his wife, Leesa, are both from the beautiful town of Carrollton, Georgia. After practicing law for more than 10 years, Scott was called by God into full-time ministry, a call which lead him to Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri. He graduated from seminary in 2008 and moved with his family to Florence to serve as Pastor of Redeemer Church. Scott is a talented teacher, a faithful shepherd and a proud husband and father. He and Leesa would love to meet you and your family any Sunday at Redeemer Church of the Shoals.
The office of elder is set forth in the Scriptures as ordinary and perpetual in the Church (Acts 20:17-35, 1 Timothy 5:17-19, Titus 1:5 , 1 Peter 5:1-5) It belongs to those in the office of elder to watch diligently over the flock committed to his charge, that no corruption of doctrine or of morals enter therein. They should visit the people at their homes, especially the sick. They should instruct the ignorant, comfort the mourner, nourish and guard the children of the Church. They should set a worthy example to the flock entrusted to their care by their zeal to evangelize the unconverted and make disciples.
The office of deacon is set forth in the Scriptures as ordinary and perpetual in the Church (Philippians 1:1, 1 Timothy 3:8-13, Acts 6:1-7). The office is one of sympathy and service, after the example of the Lord Jesus; it expresses also the communion of saints, especially in their helping one another in time of need. It is the duty of the deacons to minister to those who are in need, to the sick, to the friendless, to widows, orphans, prisoners and to any who may be in distress.
Director of Children’s Ministries
We have a heart to see kids fall in love with Jesus as they are impacted by the gospel so we hired a Director of Children’s Ministry to help us reach out to and serve kids from birth to age 18 and their parents.
We have a heart for helping people discern what God is calling them to do in his Kingdom so we hired a Pastoral Intern to help us build a youth group, improve our social media and minister to young people transitioning from college to career.
