The Barn Leadership

The Barn is shepherded by a team of pastoral leaders, with each pastor having different areas of ministry. This team works in conjunction with the prayerful guidance of our eldership team. We also have several administrative staffers, and countless incredible volunteers who keep the church running smoothly!

Senior Pastors - Bruce and Lynn Latshaw

Bruce Latshaw

Saved in 1969 at the start of The Jesus Movement, Bruce Latshaw is the founding pastor of The Barn Vineyard. He serves as the Barn’s co-senior leader with his wife, Lynn, and oversees various areas of ministry in the church, including prophetic, healing, deliverance, prayer, and The Barn Equipping Series. Bruce has served as area leader for the Vineyard Philadelphia Area, is the founding leader of the East Region Prayer Task Force, and served as a member of the Vineyard National Spiritual Renewal Task Force for three years. Bruce equips churches in how to develop prophetic and prayer ministry and is part of various networks pursuing worldwide revival. He leads the local ministerium of churches, has founded two Healing Rooms ministries in PA, and loves his ongoing call to build The Barn into the fullness of God’s dreams for this church.

His greatest passion is to equip Christians in their areas of ministry gifting and to create and launch new areas of kingdom ministry. 

Lynn Latshaw

Lynn graduated with a BA in English and went on to get a Master’s degree in Guidance Counseling and Agency Counseling. Lynn is married to Bruce and has 5 adult children and 10 grandchildren (want to see my photos?). Lynn loves studying the Bible and her dream would be to translate the whole Bible, but of course, you have to learn Hebrew and Greek!

Lynn’s greatest passion is to see people grow in God and become the people God always envisioned them to be. He has big plans for all of us! We are all God’s masterpieces. And out of that identity, good works flow easily towards others who are outside the church.

Bruce and Lynn co-wrote Youth Can Minister in 2001, the story of an on-fire team of young revivalists from The Barn called East Coast Aflame. 

They live in a dome down the lane from The Barn.

Justin Burton

Youth Pastor

Justin is a Barn full-time pastor with a focus on youth and young adults.  Justin and his wife Caitlyn graduated from Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry in Redding, CA in 2017. They married in 2015 and just welcomed their new son into the family, baby Jayce. Together they have enjoyed leading worship and young adult groups for 4 years. Their greatest joy is empowering people to cultivate extraordinary relationships with God and with others. They have a high value for honor, family, and building community. Their vision for young saints is to create cultures in which young revivalists passionately pursue their God-given destinies to transform the world around them while living in community, purity and power because they are loved by God.

Kristyn Luff

Children’s Pastor

Kristyn is overseeing the Children’s Ministry at The Barn. She is a mother of a wonderfully active young boy. She has an associates degree in physical therapist assistant and a degree from Vineyard Institute. Her passion is for everyone to know the love of Jesus because that is really what changed her heart and life. 

Her prayer is that the kids in The Barn hide God’s Word in their hearts, and that they will know the character of Father God, Jesus as their Savior, who they are in Christ, and be prepared with an answer for their faith as they live life with the Holy Spirit and follow God all their days.

Lenny Gawlikowski

Pastor and Director: Pneuma Center

Since 1999, Lenny ministered as an Associate Pastor at the Christian Life Center, New London, PA. for  11 years. Then in 2010, he helped found Shepherd’s Way, a ministry focusing on pastoral care for individuals and married couples, including physical healing, inner healing and deliverance prayer ministry.

As director of Pneuma Center at The Barn and of the School of Kingdom Ministry, his passion is now to lead, train and equip others in those areas as ministry leaders and ministry teams.

He is married to his college sweetheart Judi and have two adult children and three grandchildren.

Michele Poplo

Administration & Bookkeeping

Michele is our administrative assistant.  She’s been with the church for 20 years, starting as a volunteer in the office.  Michele and her husband Vince have a beautiful daughter, Lara.  It’s her desire to see The Barn develop into a strong organizational and administrative body.  Michele doesn’t like writing bios.  She can often be found snuggling one of the many babies in the church..
