elder board

  • barry story - elder board chairperson


    It is an honor to be an elder at Dillman. Dillman has been a part of my life since high school. I married Cherry, my high school sweetheart in 1980. We have 3 children and 5 grandkids. After retiring from 25 years of law enforcement service, I am now employed by Clean Fuels National. I enjoy hunting, golfing, and spending time with my family. However, my greatest passion is to use my skills, talents, and abilities God has given me to further the Kingdom of Christ.

    Growing up, I attended my grandmother's church and gave my life to Christ as a young boy. My experiences there shaped me in ways that I still benefit from today. I was also blessed as a teen to have participated in a great youth group that further developed and influenced my faith.  In 1992, I joined the Air Force and married my wife of now 25 years. We have 2 sons, a daughter, a son-in-law and grandson who has completely rocked our world.

    I came to Dillman with my family in 2012. We have enjoyed the many relationships that have formed since then. The Dillman family welcomed us with open arms. I am honored to serve as an Elder and am excited to see how God uses Dillman to expand His Kingdom.

    I am humbled to serve the Lord as part of Dillman Church. In my youth I grew up attending church and school in Bluffton. I can remember many Sunday’s being on the church bus as our family drove around picking up kids for church. My wife Juliann and I have three amazing children, Olivia, Harlie, and Hunter. I work at Nesco Specialty Rentals in Bluffton, but get the pleasure of serving our community through Dillman Church as Elder, Southern Wells School  as a Board Member, NASP Archery Instructor, and an Outdoor Pursuits Instructor for local youth. I enjoy the outdoors and all it has to offer us.

    Being part of Dillman Church has only grown our family’s faith in Christ. We have been welcomed and blessed by the Dillman Church Family. We accept with open hearts the paths the Lord will provide us to serve Christ.
