Barry Webb Barry was born into an evangelist's family on November 20, 1959, near Philadelphia, PA. His father, Dr. Hal Webb preached the Gospel for sixty-seven years before he went to be with the Lord. At age four Barry trusted Christ as his Savior. At twelve, he surrendered his life to the Lord, and at fourteen he preached his first sermon. He traveled with his father and Dr. Theron Babcock (his father's associate) when he could while growing up, and learned about evangelism "first hand." He was active in his local church. He attended Christian school and graduated in 1977. That summer Barry worked with Chris Babcock, again with the Hal Webb Team. In September, Barry began four years of training in Bible college. He and Chris continued to travel on weekends and during summers. After four years of college ministry together, they decided to continue as a second-generation evangelistic team. Barry was ordained in June of 1981, after graduation from college. On August 28, of that year, he married Cheryl Proper, a pastors' daughter from Pennsylvania, whom he met at college. That September these three formed Family Evangelistic Ministries Association. Chris married in 1983 and the two couples traveled together for six years until in 1987 Chris died suddenly of a brain aneurysm. Since then, Barry and Cheryl have continued as The Barry Webb Evangelistic Ministries. Barry sings, and plays Bass Trumpet, Baritone, Trombone, and Flugabone horns. He is also a ventriloquist and has had almost fifty years in the field of puppetry. He does all of the voices for the twenty plus puppets that travel with the team in their castle puppet stage. He is also a chalk artist.
