Interview: Barry Black: The Man and His Mission
   
Rear Admiral
Barry C Black


Perhaps the most visible Seventh-day Adventist minister in the world, Black who currently works on Capitol Hill, is a retired Rear Admiral who worked at the Pentagon in command of all 1,500 chaplains in the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard. He officiated at John Kennedy, Jr.’s burial at sea in 1999 and led Pentagon memorial services for the victims of September 11, 2001.

Raised by a single mother in an inner city housing project, Black calls her “a saint” and says she had “a vibrant, robust spirituality, which she transmitted to me.” She sent him to Pine Forge Academy, on to Oakwood College, seminary at Andrews University, and two doctorates. Yet, in the pulpit and personally, Black has a magnetic capacity to relate to the poor and the powerful, the educated and the uneducated, those of all faiths and none.
