Barry Johnson is the Worship Arts Director at Gulf Gate Church in Sarasota Florida., where he loves leading others to be authentic worshippers of Jesus Christ. Barry also loves writing and recording songs to encourage and equip the church and touch God’s heart. With an early start at Youth with a Mission, Amsterdam, Barry performed in musical and theater groups throughout Europe. After earning a music degree from the University of South Florida, he was hired at a local church. He never looked back. Besides music, Barry is known for his quirky humor and penchant for side streets. His favorite things include goofball movies (Three Amigos. Princess Bride. Blazing Saddles.), his wife Kay, and his two sons Isaac and Michael. They are still the loves of his life.  Special talent? Together with his sons, Barry can carry on entire conversations using one-liners from movies. Drives Kay crazy.  It's awesome!  Pray for her.
