Daniel Barkley

Pastor of Contemporary Worship

Daniel hails from Cotton Plant, Mississippi. He married Lauren in 2012 and admits that she is far outside his league. He studied at Northeast Mississippi Community College and Mississippi State University earning a B.S.I.S in Psychology, Education, and Religion. He is currently a student at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. He came to faith in Christ in 2010.

Daniel is a worship pastor who has devoted his life to sharing the good news of Jesus and building up the church through singing the truth of God’s Word. He has been at Salem since 2014 and an Apex resident since 2015.

He spends most of his time writing music and playing his guitar, fly fishing in the mountains of North Carolina, cheering for the Bulldogs, and exploring God’s good earth with Lauren. He loves to travel and meet people. He is extremely fond of Disney World and fried food.
