Seth Barber

Recovery Pastor

Seth is a native of Etowah County, Alabama and brings an enormous amount of knowledge and passion to the Catalyst Staff. Seth was one of the first people to come on board with Catalyst, and we’re sure glad he did! Here’s a little more about our Recovery Pastor.


Seth’s Story


Seth grew up in Glencoe, AL. playing sports and doing all your small town stuff. He got into some trouble from some bad choices and found himself in jail on drug related charges after high school. Though this process, Seth discovered that God still had great things for him and he was able to be transferred to an outpatient rehab facility that was Christian based. The turn around was remarkable. Seth completed the program, became a counselor, and began a life in ministry dealing with addictions.


After starting and helping run more Recovery ministries than we care to mention, Seth has joined us at Catalyst to start something from the ground up. He’s also a small business operator (Laser Graphics) and is married to his wife Emily who’s a school teacher. Together they’re raising a great big family together. Apparently all of that isn’t enough, because Seth also officiates baseball and basketball on the side.


God is going to do amazing things through Seth and Catalyst Recovery!
