Making Disciples of Jesus Christ

Pastor Barry Collins

My name is Barry Collins. I have been a pastor for over 11 years. God placed a call to ministry on my heart while I was serving through the campus ministry at the Northwestern Oklahoma State University Wesley Foundation. After graduating from NWOSU I attended Perkins School of Theology at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX. I graduated from SMU with a Master's of Divinity in 2004. My first appointment as pastor was at Wilburton UMC and the Director of the United Ministry at Eastern Oklahoma State College. I served in those positions for 6 years. I have been serving as pastor at Fort Gibson UMC since June of 2010. My beautiful wife Cassie and I were married in the summer of 2012 and gave birth to our son, Thacher, in February 2015. 
It is our hope as a Fort Gibson UMC family that you find our church to be a friendly, loving, God filled family environment where you can enjoy growing closer to our Lord Jesus Christ through our many wonderful ministries. 
Grace and Peace, 
Rev. Barry Collins
