Barak Christian Church was co-founded in 2004 by Rev. Stacey Mims and Rev. Dr. Lynn R. Mims.
Before cofounding Barak, Dr. Mims was pastor of one the leading African-American United Methodist Churches in St. Louis. While there, he developed a multifaceted outreach program that included a child development center, a welfare to work initiative, and a children’s breakfast program.

He holds master’s and doctorate degrees in theology from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, his hometown.
