JOSEPH BARKLEY

BIO

I serve as the lead pastor of Ecclesia Hollywood.
We invite people to follow Jesus with us by giving the orphan a family and the dreamer a mission.

I get to be married to Katie.
I get to be a dad to Tessa and Marlow.

That fact that I get to do any of this is as surprising to me as anyone.

  1. I went to school to get a business degree and become a corporate attorney.
  2. I started playing guitar, singing and then had a 10-year career as a musician.
  3. My wife and I helped start a church in 2005.
  4. In the Fall of 2009, I was appointed to pastor Ecclesia Hollywood.

Typical.

God is unchanging, yet so unpredictable.
I’m always learning to communicate to the best of my abilities for God’s Kingdom. I long to “equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.” (Eph 4:12–13 NIV)

If you have a question, an idea that you think I might be able to help with or want to invite me to teach, I’m all ears (digitally speaking).
