Barry's Non Profit Endeavors
Barry’s passion for community and expanding opportunity for others has been expressed through many years of service on the boards of nonprofit entities, from serving kids and parents with educational opportunity to helping those most in need in Colorado, to providing people in impoverished countries around the globe the chance to have a better life.
Barry was a founding Board Member of The Classical Academy Charter School, the largest brick and mortar charter school Colorado, which has maintained a waiting list of 3,000 since it opened in 1997. He also served as the Chairman for five years of the welfare-to-work organization, Faith Partners.
For over ten years Barry served as Chairman of Engineering Ministries International during which time its worldwide reach doubled and its donated engineering services to the poorest countries in the world grew six-fold. In addition, from 2002 to 2007, Barry was involved in training conferences for senior pastors from 15 African nations through African Ministries International (AFMIN).
