Rev. Barrett C. Milner

  • BA, University of Kentucky
  • MDiv., Lexington Theological Seminary

Pastor Barrett C. Milner began his ministry with the First Presbyterian Church family in Oxford in June of 2020.  Before answering the call to serve as the congregation’s 26th Pastor and Head of Staff, he most recently served churches in New Orleans, LA and Lexington, KY.  Rev. Milner received his undergraduate degree from the University of Kentucky and completed his Master of Divinity at the Lexington Theological Seminary.  Barrett is married to his life-long friend and fellow Lexington native, Carrie, and together they are the proud parents of three wonderful, charming, and incorrigible boys: Cole, Tucker, and Price.

Along with a heart for mission and justice and a devotion to his vocation, Barrett also brings to Oxford and the First Church family a love of books, of good conversation, and of music—both playing and listening.  He brings his passion for all things immersed in God’s creation: hiking, fishing, canoeing, and simply being.  And he brings with him, too, an open mind, an open heart, and an openness to the murmurings and nudging of the Spirit.
