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.

    After a 32 year career of being an audiologist at VA Northern Indiana Health Care System, Marion, Indiana, I have recently retired. Working with our veterans over the years has allowed me to gain a true respect for their sacrifices and what it means to give of yourself. 

    Connie and I have 5 children and 22 grandchildren! Several of our family members attend Dillman. We are blessed to be able to worship together as a family.

    I was recently elected as an Elder. I take this responsibility seriously. I look forward to serving the body and supporting the staff in furthering the mission of Dillman Church, that we might become "the People of God on the Mission of God."

    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.
