We found a treasure when we found Rev. Dimetra Barrios while watching the online messages of Jon Tyson’s Church of the City. She serves as the founding and lead pastor at Legacy Brooklyn. She has studied at Liberty and Fuller, and is a featured speaker at Exponential conference. And she gets the Art of Holiness. Dimetra speaks with such spiritual insight about issues like practical holiness, the nature of the Body of Christ, and ministry in the margins. As she puts it, “it is my goal to walk alongside others in Brooklyn, unified in community, bringing together our vast diversities for the singular glory of God.” In this conversation, we trust you will find a new voice to follow in the world Christian movement.
