How St. Barnabas Got HereIn the 1960s the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina decided to build a new church in northwest Greensboro. The end result was our mission, started by Father Jim Prevatt in 1967. Jim held Sunday services in local school buildings until the permanent St. Barnabas could be built on its present site.
On May 23, 1971, the mission moved into its building, which was blessed by Bishop W. Moultrie Moore on June 11, the Feast Day of St. Barnabas. Due to the growth of the church, the chapel was extended about sixteen feet some five years later. An office and education building were later built next to the chapel.
Father Prevatt served St. Barnabas through May of 2001. He enjoys his retirement with his wife, Muriel, in what was the original rectory for the church. Since his retirement, St. Barnabas was served well by several clergy serving for short periods of time. Father Keeney came to St. Barnabas in July of 2006.
