Barry G. Carpenter


I am a seminary graduate with a Doctor of Theology degree (Th.D.). My field of study was Pastoral Theology.

After my conversion in 2000, I served in var
ious roles such as Sunday School teacher, outreach and evangelism, cell group leader, etc.

In 2005 I took my first mission trip to Central America. It was there that I realized the desire to help indigenous pastors obtain training and resources.


I served as a pastor for over three years in rural Alabama before I moved to Mindanao, Philippines and established Expositor International Ministry and Bible Expositors Seminary.  EIM was dissolved and the seminary was renamed to Mindanao Grace Seminary. The seminary is under the oversight of Cagayan Grace Baptist Church (Cagayan De Oro, Philippines). 


Dominion Baptist Church (Birmingham, AL) gives over-sight and accountability to our ministry. They are also responsible for our transfer of funds.
