C. Barry McCarty (born 1953[1]) is an American preacher and educator who has been associated with the Southern Baptist Convention and the Christian churches and churches of Christ. McCarty is a former president of Cincinnati Christian University and the current chief parliamentarian for the Southern Baptist Convention. From January 2010 to June 2015 he was the senior pastor of Peachtree Christian Church, a Disciples of Christ congregation, in Atlanta, Georgia. In August 2015, his 30-year relationship with the SBC culminated in changing his church affiliation to Southern Baptist and accepting a call to the faculty of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth as professor of preaching and rhetoric.[2]

Early life and education[edit]

Barry McCarty was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. He graduated with a BS in biblical studies and Christian ministries from Mid-Atlantic Christian University in 1975.[3][4] He later earned an MA in speech communication from Abilene Christian University in 1977 and a Ph.D. in rhetoric and argumentation from the University of Pittsburgh in 1980.[3][5]

His term was marked by record growth in admissions and balanced budgets after the college almost went bankrupt in 1986. McCarty left Cincinnati Christian University in 1993 to enter new church work, leading the Lakota Christian Church in Cincinnati, Ohio to grow from a small group meeting in a rented schoolhouse cafeteria to over 1000 members inonly five years.[6]

McCarty received media attention in 2005 as Preaching Minister of Valley View Christian Church in Dallas, Texas, since it was the church that White House Counsel Harriet Miers attended.[7]Miers's conservative Christian views and relative judicial obscurity made her nomination to the Supreme Court controversial. McCarty supported her nomination without taking an official political position.[8][9]

McCarty was the senior pastor at Peachtree Christian Church, a Disciples of Christ congregation in Atlanta, Georgia, prior to accepting a call to the faculty of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth.[10]

McCarty posted a controversial Twitter photo in April 2017 dressed as a hip-hop/rap artist. The post gained media attention including Black Lives Matter advocate, Shaun King. Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary issued a public apology in response to media backlash.[11][12][13] The response included a message from the seminary's president, Paige Patterson.[14]
