About My Family

Hello, My name is Dave Barber. I am a native Arizonan and the pastor of Rim View Community Church in Star Valley, Ariz. I have been married to Dee for 33 years, am the father of three grown daughters, have two sons-in-law and three grandsons. I am a little more than halfway through my seminary journey at Gateway Seminary, having started there in 2012. I have owned and managed Dave Barber Realty, Inc., since 1995. I love anything having to do with the great outdoors, with hunting and fishing at the top of the list.

About My Church Plant

We are in early year three of a church revitalization here in the Arizona Rim Country. We recently went through a complete rebranding and name change and have also just called our first part-time staff to help our part-time pastor. We are excited about what God is doing in and through us!

NAMB Church Planting

Demonstrated Christian character is essential for missionaries and chaplains to gain credibility and build community. A missionary is a person who, in response to God's call and gifting, leaves his or her comfort zone and crosses cultural, geographic or other barriers to proclaim the gospel and live out a Christian witness in obedience to the Great Commission. The North American Mission Board supports missionaries serving across the United States, Canada and their territories. Churches are the missionary incubators and sending centers for missionaries through the Southern Baptist Convention. Missionaries serve in a variety of settings and face tremendous challenges. But the rewards are tremendous and life-changing. Missionaries have the privilege to represent their church and their Father in sharing the gospel as the primary focus of their activity. If you are interested in pursuing next steps as a potential missionary or chaplain from your church, explore the possibilities at namb.net/send-me.


For better time management skills for this bi-vocational pastor. For younger workers in the church to help us with a rapidly expanding children's ministry. For receptive hearts among the people in the Rim Country. For the Father to send more workers into His harvest to join these missionaries.


Be involved in supporting missionaries and their families. Pray for missionaries.
Many missionaries build a team to join their ministry in prayer, participation, and provision. These friends, family and churches support missionaries beyond the tithes and offerings given within the church plant.
