Unity in Mission – Leroy Barber

“The more we divide, the less the world sees Jesus.” This is the powerful message that Leroy challenged us with at Exponential 2011: On the Verge. Check out this clip from the conference and stay tuned for more clips and full sessions from this year’s conference!

Leroy Barber has dedicated more than 20 years to eradicating poverty, confronting homelessness, restoring local neighborhoods, healing racism, and living what Dr. King called “the beloved community.”

He is currently the President of Mission Year, a national urban initiative introducing 18-29 year olds to missional and communal living in city centers for one year of their lives. Rev. Barber is the Pastor of a church plant, Community Fellowships Church; and on the boards of Atlanta Youth Academy and CCDA. Leroy is the author of New Neighbor: An Invitation to Join Beloved Community, and was also chosen as a contributor to the groundbreaking book UnChristian: What a New Generation Thinks About Christianity and Why It Matters.
