As vice president for advancement at Messiah College, I have the privilege of working with an exceptionally talented group of colleagues.  Our division is responsible for securing gift support for scholarships, buildings, and programs; for engaging alumni, parents, and friends in the life of Messiah; and for telling the Messiah story locally, regionally, and nationally. We do this through the offices of Development, Alumni and Parent Relations, and Marketing and Communications.  It is an honor to work at Messiah—one of the premier Christian colleges in the country.  I hope you have a chance to meet our graduates.  They are truly servants, leaders, and reconcilers in every part of the world.

Barry attended Messiah in the late 1970s where he met his wife, Bev.  They have two children, Laura and Dan, both college students.  Barry holds B.S. and M.B.A. degrees and is a Certified Financial Planner.  He is a member of the Harrisburg Rotary Club, and Polar Bear Foundation.  In his free time, you may find Barry fly-fishing on the Yellow Breeches Creek, bicycling, traveling, or cheering the Messiah athletic teams onto another national championship.
