Mark Barrow

Chief Executive Officer
mbarrow@AldersgateRenewal.org
(615) 851-9192 Ext.105

Mark was born in 1968, which happens to be the same year the United Methodist Church was born. He was born and raised in Elkton Maryland. He attended and served Leed’s United Methodist Church for 32 years. There he grew in faith through great teaching, sacraments, service, and witness. There he got the call to be a worship leader.

In 1998 he was searching for more. He felt that the ministry was dry and just going through the motions. He attended an Aldersgate Renewal Conference in Dallas, TX. There he experienced the fullness of the Holy Spirit moving in a way that is described in the New Testament during Pentecost. He saw and felt the love of the Father like he had never experienced before. It reminded him of the scriptures where Paul asked believers: “have you received the Holy Spirit?” His answer was like theirs; he didn’t know there was a Holy Spirit. That experience took him on a journey serving the ministry of Aldersgate Renewal Ministries (ARM). Through the years he has had the opportunity to serve in many aspects of the ministry, A/V, Youth, Onsite coordinator for the conference, Local Church renewal events, and worship leading.

In 2000 he, his wife Betty, and son Christopher moved to Tennessee to be closer to the ARM headquarters and serve as a music director at a local UMC church. In 2001 the Lord opened the opportunity to serve as a worship leader and lay associate pastor at another local Methodist church in the area. 

In 2016 the Lord led the ministry of ARM to elect Mark as their Chief Executive Officer. Following the leading of the Lord, he accepted that position. He continues to serve in leading the ministry to provide opportunities for every follower of Jesus to experience transforming growth, through the love of the Father, by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Becky lives in White House, Tennessee with her husband, Drew. She loves reading and spending time with Drew and her adult children, Mollie and Corey.

Christian Slone

Administrative Assistant

(615) 851-9192 Ext.103

Having volunteered with Aldersgate Renewal Ministries for 6 years, Christian has said for the past 3 that it would be a dream job for her to work for the ministry. As of February 2022, she is blessed to be their Administrative Assistant! However, that is not her only dream job. The other was planted in her when, senior year of college, God invited her to be a missionary in Japan. The years following have been full of trusting Him and growing through unexpected circumstances as she continues to pursue this calling for which she knows God has been training her. While treasuring the season of life she is in now, she is eager to share the deep love, freedom, and life Jesus wants to give the multitudes of lost and broken people in Japan!
