Today’s special guest is Pastor Tyrone Barnette. Pastor Barnette shares with us how to listen and pray during a time of racial reconciliation. We are thankful for his ministry and wisdom during this important time of building unity. 

Pastor Tyrone Barnette is the founder and senior pastor of Peace Baptist Church in Decatur, Georgia. The church was founded in 1993 in Pastor Barnette’s home, and has grown greatly since then, to over 3,000 members with an average of about 1,200 people attending on Sundays.

Pastor Barnette has preached the Gospel around the world, including Brazil and parts of Africa (where he helped build five churches and saw more than a thousand people give their lives to Christ). He’s also been to South Africa and formed partnerships with several churches there.

Tyrone has been married to his wife, Tabitha, for over 30 years. They have three wonderful children and one granddaughter.
