|Barry Sommerfield, Sturgis Venue Pastor|
Barry was introduced to Jesus as a child, however it wasn’t till after his marriage to his wife, Judy, that he became active in serving in the church. Leaving his teaching position in 1982, he enrolled in seminary and served as a pastor for over twenty years. Barry and his wife began attending The Vineyard in 2013, and despite the forty-five minute drive kept coming back!
