Lara Barnett

Children’s Ministry Director

Lara, a native to Mount Pleasant, grew up actively involved in and assisting children's ministry in middle school and throughout high school. After graduating from Clemson University, she taught for 6 years in Summerville and then 6 years at Charles Pinckney Elementary. Throughout her years in education she earned a Masters in Administration from Charleston Southern University and a certificate to teach gifted and talented students through College of Charleston. After several months of attending St. Peter's , she felt the Lord's call to serve His children through their ministry program. In the summer of 2019, after much prayer and family consideration, Lara and Jason, her husband, and their two children Cole, age 4, and Makenzie, age 7, accepted God's call. Lara has a passion for serving children and teaching them to grow in love and faith in the Lord through God's word, interactions with others, and music.
