Leroy was licensed and ordained at Mt Zion Baptist Church where he served as Youth Director with Donna, and also served as Associate Minister of Evangelism.  In 1997, he joined FCS Urban Ministries, working with Atlanta Youth Project to serve as the founding Executive Director of Atlanta Youth Academies, a private elementary school providing quality Christian education for low-income families in the inner city.  Leroy also helped found DOOR Atlanta and Community Grounds Coffee shop in Atlanta.

Leroy is currently the Global Executive Director of Word Made Flesh, an international organization that works among the most vulnerable of the world’s poor.  Rev. Barber is on the boards of Mission Year and the Christian Community Development Association (CCDA). He is the author of New Neighbor: An Invitation to Join Beloved Community, and Everyday Missions: How Ordinary People Can Change the World and was also chosen as a contributor to Tending to Eden, and the groundbreaking book UnChristian: What a New Generation Thinks About Christianity and Why It Matters.  His third book, Red, Brown, Yellow, Black and White: Who’s More Precious In God’s Sight?, will be published this fall.

Elective Chapels

  • Date: November 6th, 2014
  • Location: Varies

Contemporary worship and teaching led by student chaplains. Meets in Brubaker Auditorium.


What value does salt have if it has lost its flavor? What purpose is light if it cannot be seen? In Matthew 5:13-16, Jesus proclaims that his followers are to be visible, set-apart people in the world. Salt and Light chapel seeks to explore how we are to follow this teaching in our lives. Through the witness of faithful followers of Christ throughout the world and the encouragement of one another we hope to better understand and better enact what it truly means to live as Jesus lived, to see the world through the eyes of God. Meets in Hostetter Sanctuary.


The New Testament word Logos represents God's communication to humanity in text, speech, and person. The Logos chapel series features excellent music and relevant preaching focused on God's Word to us. Meets in Parmer Cinema (Boyer).
