Pastor Cedrick Barrett is the Founder and Senior Pastor of Purpose Church International. He founded Purpose Church on love, God’s Word, and a passion for helping people. Pastor Latoya Barrett is a woman of great passion, compassion, and grace.

Purpose Church was founded in March 2011 in Wilmington, NC by Cedrick Barrett and his wife Latoya Barrett along with 3 other families with a vision to use practical biblical principles that empower people to live healthy and whole as they impact the world. This core group of 15 people would meet on Friday nights to hold bible studies at a local facility in the Monkey Junction area. As the bible study attendance began to grow the decision was made to launch the first official Sunday morning worship service in March 2012 at a local facility off of Gordon road. For the next 2 year Purpose Church would have Sunday worship services here while having mid-week services at a satellite office downtown. The weekly attendance continued to grow over this 2 year period leading to relocating to the current facility at 1470 N. Kerr Avenue Wilmington, NC 28405 in December 2013.
