From Alabama, God then led Dr. Barker to pastor a church in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. While serving God at this church, Dr. Barker was blessed to see the church body grow from 300 people to over 3,000 with a development of 135 cell groups within nine years.

Dr. Barker and his wife, Dee, together minister to critical issues affecting individuals’ social and spiritual development. They have now, along with their son, Dustin, birthed the ministry of Elevation Point.
