Our Minister

Rev. Bari Castle

The Rev. Bari L. Castle

Rev. Bari has been in ministry in the United Church of Canada for over 35 years, and comes to us via Calgary, Toronto, Stettler AB, Victoria, Vancouver, Vernon and Oliver!

Originally from Michigan, with a background in theatre and crisis intervention, Bari chose the United Church when she came to Canada in 1978. She loves the United Church for its open-mindedness, its welcoming nature, and its willingness to face the tough issues of life head on.

A story-teller from the pulpit, her passion is for finding fresh ways of engaging The Christian Story to communicate to the hearts and minds of children and elders and all those “in between”.

Bari and her husband John are thrilled to have arrived home in the Okanagan!
