The Rev. Jeff Barz-Snell, Minister of First Church
Rev. Barz-Snell is the thirty-first minister of the First Church in Salem and was ordained here in December of 1998. His responsibilities include planning our weekly religious services, pastoral counseling, outreach and managing the staff and programs for our growing congregation. Jeff works to develop ongoing programming including children's religious education, adult discussion groups, lectures and social functions like our Pancake Breakfasts and Family Fun Nights. While he always finds enough to keep himself busy, he makes it a priority to be available for conversation and discussion about the various faith issues and/or challenges that inevitably arise in one's life.
