MEET OUR PASTORS
Pastor Cedrick and Latoya Barrett founded Purpose Church in March of 2011. The Barrett’s are natives of Fayetteville, NC and are parents to 3 children, Daniel, Essence, and Josiah. Honesty and transparency are hard to come by but The Barrett’s commitment to live their lives this way makes their ministry genuine and impactful. They have a passion for people and helping them identify and walk in their purpose. They encourage practical biblical principles that empower people to live healthy and whole as they impact the world.
Purpose Church was founded with a core group of 15 people who 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 years, 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 – 1470 N. Kerr Avenue Wilmington, NC 28405 in December 2013.
