Pastor Mike Barnes
I was born in Palmetto Georgia. I accepted Christ as my Lord and Savior in 2001 and answered the call to the Gospel Ministry of Jesus Christ at Royal Baptist Church in Newnan, Georgia in May of 2003. October of that same year I started my first Church in Luthersville, Georgia, Rehoboth Baptist Church. Rehoboth is strong and growing to this day. In February 2010, I came to New Salem as Pastor. I am married to the love of my life, Stephanie and we have two sons, Cole and Drew.
Associate Pastor Kevin Judy
Kevin met and received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior on October 12, 1997 at Teamon Baptist Church. His wife, Janet, and he were members at Teamon until 2002. After their time at Teamon, the Lord led them to New Salem in 2002. They have been actively serving New Salem since. Early in April 2014, Kevin answered the call to the Gospel Ministry of Jesus Christ and on Easter morning 2014, he made it public. Shortly after, he was called to serve as Student Pastor here at New Salem.
Kevin and Janet have two wonderful boys, Jacob and Jesse. They enjoy ministering to our youth and growing our church through our Sunday school and discipleship.
