Our History - 1980's
The Rev. George Moses and Holly came May 28, 1978. He served as vicar until June 27, 1982. These were happy years at St. Barnabas. Growth in membership continued, the church mortgage was paid off, and there was considerable discussion of how the building could be expanded to meet the needs of the growing church. Christy and Suzanne were born during these years. George and Holly chose to purchase their own home, so the vicarage on Johnson Avenue was sold.

The Moses family moved to Morgantown in June, 1982,
where he began counseling at the
Morgantown Pastoral Counseling Center.
The Rev. William B. Fulks arrived September 5, 1982.
He remained at St. Barnabas until September, 1990.
St. Barnabas became a parish following the Diocesan Convention in 1987. Regrettably, at the Convention of 1990, St. Barnabas voluntarily sought to revert to mission status. Attrition of membership by death, transfer, and movement left the church in a position where it was not self-supporting.
