Leon Barnes, pulpit minister for Central church of Christ in Little Rock, Arkansas. I grew up in Vernon, Alabama and married Linda Randolph back in September of 1964. I went to Freed-Hardeman College in Henderson, Tennessee and have been preaching since January of 1965. Most of those years have been spent in the Little Rock area. We moved here with our three daughters in 1973 from Hatley, Mississippi. For 16 years I preached for the Levy congregation in North Little Rock and have been with Central since October of 1993. It was the Barrow Road congregation at that time. In 2003 we moved as a congregation to downtown Little Rock.
We have been blessed with nine grandchildren. I’ve written 19 books along the way.
