So, about our pastor............

Rev. Amantha Barbee is a strangely odd, funny, loving, honest and charismatic person. Her passion for those on the margins of life is obvious. Rev. Barbee practices what she preaches and will not ask you to do anything she is unwilling to do herself, like stocking the shelves in the food pantry. She cherishes the simple things in life like fishing and singing but she is a deep thinker, learner, teacher, and preacher. Rev. Barbee wants what is best for you and she will push for the top so everyone prospers. She is a big kid and shows up during the week from time to time in "Chuck Taylors" but then she'll show up on Facebook wearing a gown and 4" heels at a benefit and never preaches without a collar. She claims to hate school but is working on her doctorate at Columbia. If you ask her why she'll say, "God makes me do these things and I can't say no." Rev. Barbee is an activist and doesn't mind getting in the trenches with those with no voice. The poor, minorities, women, LGBTQ, the hungry, the environment all claim much of her attention. As the chairperson for the Charlotte Clergy Coalition for Justice, she leads a group of committed clergy who vow to make a difference in this city. Though not a politician, you will find her at city hall fighting for the rights of others. Rev. Barbee is wildly creative and makes worship services come to life. Call her, make an appointment. She's busy but she will make time for you, promise! Rev. Barbee doesn't work on Fridays, so she says. She is not an early bird but she'll stay late. Oh yes, we almost forgot. Her Great Dane, Winston, is ridiculously big and protective. At least she stopped bringing him to work when he hit 90 lbs.
