With great sadness, this message is written to inform our community of the passing of Dr. Ron Barnes. Dr. Barnes, a San Diego Christian College Alumni, served as a faculty in the Bible department for 16 years until 2008. His commitment to Christ was pivotal to his service as an educator, pastor, and author. Dr. Barnes is described as having an unwavering faith, one that he graciously shared with others. He made teaching Bible and inspiring others to share the gospel a lifetime priority. Dr. Barnes encouraged us to live each day joyfully and faithfully in Christ. His most recent book, A Hero’s Welcome, provides an in-depth biblical study of the teaching on eternal rewards when we stand before Jesus. Dr. Barnes passed away while hiking this past weekend. He will be missed, as he deeply impacted the lives of so many. Please join us in prayer for his wife and family.

The service will be held Saturday, January 6 at 1 PM at Shadow Mountain Community Church, 2100 Greenfield Dr, El Cajon, CA 92019.
