MINISTRY  LEADERSHIP

Daren Lee Barnett – Pastor
 
Hello, my name is Daren, I am the pastor here at Foundations Bible Church. Thanks for taking the time to visit us here on our website. Most people like to know a little bit about the pastor and their background. I grew up in the country just outside the small rural town of Cambridge Springs, PA. I am married (to an extraordinary woman named Cameron that is a great support and encouragement to me in ministry – plus a very bold and faithful Christian). We have 4 children together; our oldest son Brayden serves in the USMC (OORAH!!), our next born son Gavin is on our praise team and works fulltime for Wakefield Pork, then there is our daughter Jaden who has strong faith and works for a local farmer, JPR, from the congregation, and finally our youngest son Noah, who works for the local hardware, Roerig’s, he loves fishing, shooting and archery. We homeschool Jaden and Noah.
   
I was called out of my vocation at Lord Corporation as a Senior Test Technician for aerospace, industrial, and military applications into ministry, serving the LORD Jesus and the Gospel. I have been in church leadership for approximately 20 years: in youth ministry, as interim pastor and pulpit supply preacher, as a deacon, a trustee, program administrator for the Christian education and discipleship board, denominational association president, 5 of these years as the full-time assistant pastor and 5 of these as the sole pastor of here. I received the call to move to Winnebago, MN in the spring of 2016. In August of that year I accepted the call and assumed the role of the pastor. We have navigated the last 5 years together to become an independent non-denominational congregation that simply follows Jesus and His Word. Our mission under the Great Commission is to “Prepare People for Wholeness in Jesus Through the Word of God”.
     
As for my preparation for ministry and preaching Biblical sermons, I attended Lancaster Bible College, ACTS (Academy of Christian Training and Service) and Louisiana Baptist University and Seminary. It is of deep importance to me to preach and teach through Spirit Led messages, the Gospel of Christ, the Whole Counsel of Scripture, Christian Living, Biblically Based Doctrines (teachings), End Times Prophecy, and Stand for Truth until Jesus Comes Back for us… readying the remnant for the rapture.
       
I believe there is no room for mediocrity as we follow Jesus Christ – the Messiah. We are called for living out the Gospel and truth in “such a time as this”; Christian’s are facing the spiritual battle of the end of the age, in a hostile culture that is eroding the very fabric of society, both in America in the rest of the world. Many say things are falling apart; but, really God has them falling into place. Thanks again for taking time to check out our website, and I certainly hope you will come join us. Know you are being prayed for before we ever meet.
 
Remember, because of Jesus’ grace – God loves you and so do I
LaNay Hervey – Church Administrative Secretary
 
Hi, Im LaNay, the Administrative Secretary at Foundations Bible Church, and I am so glad you are here! I am married to my extremely talented husband, Andrew Hervey, who also happens to be the reason I am now a part of the FBC family. I say family because that is exactly what you will find here amongst our congregation. While only some have family ties, we are all a part of one body who truly takes every person in as our own. I experienced this unique love when I started attending the church 7 years ago. Together my husband and I farm my family’s land, and we live on Andrew’s family homestead.  We strive to be good stewards of the land. 
 
I grew up just down the road from Winnebago in the very small town of Delavan. I attended both the Methodist and Lutheran churches in town throughout my childhood, and my parents raised me to know the Lord and serve others as often as I could. When I met my husband Andrew, there was something different about him and the way he treated others; he was the reason I would come to know the Lord greater than ever before- I just did not know it yet. Through his love and the support of those I had come to know at FBC, I was Baptized again as an adult in 2017. I can honestly say I owe my life to my husband, this church and Pastor Darens teaching. Daren saw my hunger to learn and has mentored me from the day he started preaching in Winnebago. 
 
I first started serving in the church as a member of the Praise Team. I have also served as a member of the Stewardship Team, in the kitchen, as a Youth Group Leader, and I am currently a member of our Spiritual Ministry Team and Girlfriends for God. I believe the Lord Jesus Christ has given us each our individual talents to spread the Gospel and bring others to know HIM personally. As Christians, we have no room or time for worry; we must simply praise HIM for both the blessings and the struggles, share the Good News, and await HIS return!
