Our Team

Barbara Franklin

Montclair Campus Pastor

It is a joy to serve alongside my husband Anthony as East Campus Pastors (Montclair, NJ). I also provide leadership to our church’s Small Group and Marriage ministries.

Favorite Things/Hobbies

I'm all about family. One of my many favorite things to do is to have the grandkids over for extended weekends and to spend the day at the Jersey shore with family and friends. I also enjoy romantic Caribbean vacations with my husband as we explore the islands.

About Me

I was born and raised in Queens, New York. I like reading, cooking, baking, the outdoors, and Starbucks with my man.
My husband and I are passionate about restoring and strengthening marriages and we have used our 30 years of pastoral ministry to counsel and mentor couples through workshops, retreats, and one-on-one sessions. We are also Certified Prepare-Enrich Marriage Assessment Facilitators.

I earned my degree in elementary education from Nyack College where I met the love of my life, Anthony. I am a child developmental specialist for the New Jersey Early Intervention System where God uses me to encourage, equip, and strengthen families who are raising children with special needs and developmental delays.

Family Life

I have been married since 1981 and my husband and I are blessed to have two beautiful daughters, a great son-in-law, and four grandchildren.

Favorite Scripture

The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down.

Proverbs 14:1
