Fr. Barnabas Powell was once a police officer; he was also once a member of the Baptist Church, and then a Pentecostal Church, before he developed an interest in the Orthodox Church. This year he can be called a pastor, as he was ordained to the priesthood in March and more recently appointed head of the parish of Sts. Raphael, Nicholas and Irene, in Cumming, Georgia.

Interesting, Sts. RNI Is where my brother and I were chrismated earlier this year. I was wondering who was replacing Fr. Jim since he moved to North Carolina...
Thank you for posting this

Axios Fr. Barnabas!

I was at Ss. Nicholas, Raphael, and Irene a year ago; exactly one week before I left Atlanta.

Great people -- great parish!

I met Fr. Barnabas while visiting Holy Cross in the spring. Wonderful man!

I wish him all the best!

Fr. Barnabus is a very dear friend.  Fr. Christos and I are so thrilled that he and Pres. Connie and the family are close by now!  And from what I hear, he's doing an incredible job up there in Cumming!

Axios! Axios! Axios!

At the Saints Nicholas, Raphael, and Irene website, Father Barnabas has a very inspiring message (http://www.stsrni.org/Priest_Message.html. Also, please check this interview of him by Frederica Mathewes-Greene at http://www.frederica.com/writings/dn-barnabas-powell.html. Axios indeed!
