      In June the fall of 2016 the Vestries of St. John's and St. Barnabas' Episcopal Churches, in collaboration with Bishop Mayer and the Diocesan Office in Lubbock, began discussions to explore ways to share resources to maintain and strengthen the Episcopal presence in Odessa. The most visible result of this collaborative effort is that the churches now have a common priest, in the person of the Reverend David J. Mossbarger. Father David, who has been the Rector at St. Barnabas since 2005, has already had a strong impact at St. John's as the spiritual leader of the congregation, and as the Chaplain of St. John's Episcopal School. The Vestries, working with Bishop Mayer, anticipate  formalizing Fr. David's role as the joint Rector of the two congregations in the near future.
