Pastor Barry Dotson / Senior PASTor

Barry Dotson is the founding and lead pastor of The Rock Church in Blairsville, Georgia.   After many years of service in his local church (in education, guest services, and music), he began to feel a call to ministry.  The leading of the Lord drew him to the beautiful North Georgia/Western North Carolina mountains.

The building of the church has become a family's labor of love.  His wife Shay is a gifted administrator, speaker, and singer who leads Ladies' Ministries.  Daughter Shaunmarie is a talented speaker, musician, and singer who also serves as the leader of the youth department.  Their son Heath is the church's outreach director, and is  a maturing speaker as well.

This family is so blessed by the incredible group that God has put together to form The Rock Church, and He is adding to that group on a continual basis.  We are simply people who love God and are working together to see something great done for Him!
