Impersonal Bio

I'm a husband, pastor, speaker, designer, and Apple fan boy. My passion rests in serving as Executive Pastor at Elevation Point Church, where we exist to connect people to God and Others. I also spend a lot of time running the web/graphic design business I founded in 2007, Dustin Barker Design.

In Short

I love my family and my church. I am thankful for all that Christ has entrusted me with, and I strive every day to grow closer to fulfilling my purpose and His plan for my life.
