Ethan Barnett

Director of Youth Ministries

Ethan Barnett was born and raised in Lenoir. A few years of ministry at a Christian camp in East Tennessee blessed him in October 2016 with marriage to his wife Jessica.  After returning to Lenoir, they began worshipping at LPC.  In Fall 2018, Ethan was employed by Lenoir Pres to manage the facilities with which we have been greatly blessed. Since their arrival here they have been graced with the addition of a terrier named Mel and beautiful baby girl named Isabelle! Ethan thoroughly enjoys deep theological study and discussion, hearing the robust bickering of bible scholars, and gaming of the board and video varieties.
