Dr. Barbara Parker is a consultant and teacher with a passion to help others discover a life of Christ-centered meaning and purpose. “So many women have poured into my life that I recognize the importance of doing that for others. One of my greatest joys is walking beside other women to help them lead strong and live well.”
In 2005, Barbara was called to start a prayer ministry and founded United in Prayer, a community prayer group for DeSoto, Texas that continues to meet in local churches once a month. She served as the Director of Women’s Ministry at Hillcrest Baptist Church in Cedar Hill, Texas for six years and currently serves as a leadership consultant with the Dallas Baptist Association. Her experience allows her to speak with you as someone who has experienced many of the same challenges you do in ministry.
Barbara has a Bachelor of Science in Education (BSE) from the University of North Texas, a Master of Arts in Christian Education (MACE) from Dallas Baptist University, a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) from the University of Iowa, and a Doctorate in Education Leadership (Ed.D.) with a concentration in ministry from Dallas Baptist University.
