John Barber

Technical Director

John Barber wears a lot of hats at Providence. Most days, he’s the Technical Director, which means he’s in charge of sound, lights, video, and computers. On a typical Sunday, you can find him in the booth at the back of the Worship Center (if he’s not running around trying to fix something). He’s also the Facility Director (so feel free to tell him if one of the toilets is running).

John graduated from Ouachita Baptist University in 1999 with a B.A. in English. He’s been on staff at Providence since 2008. He’s married to Janna, and they have three kids – Sam, Laney, and Benjamin. Because three kids wasn’t crazy enough, the Barbers also have three pets – Lucky, Rory, and Marty (dog, dog, cat). John earned a master’s degree from Dallas Theological Seminary in 2015.

When he’s not working, you can find him at a concert or the movies (he’s particularly partial to those art house films that nobody’s ever heard of).
