Barry Bordenkircher

Barry is a son, husband, and father who also happens to be an amateur astronomer (three telescopes and two humongous pairs of binoculars!). He is a United Church of Christ pastor, and a partner in RETURN to EDEN (RTE) with Co-Creator and cohort in doctrinal demolition, Rev. Glen Shedlock. With thirty- five years in local churches and judicatory ministry, and as a church renewal coach, Barry has experienced the best and the worst of church life…and in recent years, WAY too much of the latter. Because, well, “Church as we’ve known it” continues its lingering demise. Barry has struggled with how many Christians are AFRAID of God, and each other; and—despite lifelong church membership—are wounded, discouraged, and/or spiritually shallow. At breakfast one day with Glen, they shared stories of these painful realities…and immediately knew they shared a vision to transform old, worn-out biblical narratives which make people afraid of God into a lifegiving, soul-releasing journey of self-discovery and deep joy…and Return to Eden was born.
