Barak LMD School of Learning was founded by The Reverend Dr. Lynn R. Mims, Senior Pastor of Barak Christian Church.  Dr. Mims received his Doctorate of Ministry and Master of Divinity Degrees from Southern Methodist University at Perkins School of Theology in Dallas, Texas. After receiving his degrees, Dr. Mims began teaching at Perkins for seven years as a full-time professor.  Moreover, Dr. Mims has pastored local churches in Dallas, Oklahoma and St. Louis and has been successful in starting new churches. ​Dr. Mims has taught and trained clergy and laity in the studies of theology for over 25 years. Due to the growing number of clergy who have experienced a call to ministry under his leadership, Dr. Mims was lead by God to begin a school of learning to teach, ordain and prepare persons for seminary. Although Barak LMD School of Learning is not accredited, many pastors, clergy and laity have benefited from the teaching and are prepared to enter into fulltime ministry with a constructed theological education in biblical studies.  Upon completion of the four years’ courses, persons will be ordained as deaconates, and the set apart ministries.
