Barry Reinhold became a Christian through the ministry work of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship while he was a freshman at UNH. He first started attending DEC in 1977 when it was meeting on the UNH Campus. He graduated from UNH in 1981 with degrees in Physics and Computer Science.

Barry has been married to Claire Tappan since 1980, and they have four children: Daniel is married and is a pastorin Houston, Texas; Eric is married to Bethany (former worship team leader here at dec) and works at Gordon College; Benjamin and Caleb who work with their father, founder and president of Lamprey Networks.

The Reinholds have been involved in different aspects of ministry through the years, including singles, young couples, worship, children’s ministry, youth ministry, small groups leadership, marriage and family, assimilation and greeting, and collegiate ministry.

Barry continues to have interests in college-age life, apologetics, Christian doctrine, and marriage.

His goal as member of the DEC Board of Elders is to listen well to both God and the church body and to be faithful in applying God’s truth with God’s heart – however that comes out.
