Doug Barnwell

High School Pastor



Doug Barnwell has long loved Jackson, TN. From bringing students here for Centrifuge to his experience with Union University’s extension program in Birmingham, the Lord has long used members of this community to bless him and his ministry.

Doug married his wife, Julie, in March of 2010. They met on a mission trip in 2003. Though Julie claims Doug fell for her at first glance, the two remained long-distance friends for the next six years. They have two daughters, Cora Mae and Audrey.

Doug has been the High School Pastor at Fellowship Bible Church since May of 2016. He began working with students in 2002 and has degrees from Beeson Divinity School in Birmingham, AL (MDiv), Union University in Jackson, TN (MCS), and the University of Alabama at Birmingham in Birmingham, AL (BA, BS). He is currently pursuing a PhD in Biblical Theology from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kansas City, MO.
