Wellspring Community is excited to announce that Peter Barber has joined our staff as our new Development Director.
Peter is a seasoned leader with nonprofit experience and a fine-tuned sense for building culture and weathering adaptive change. For almost a decade, Peter served as Care Pastor for Southeast Christian Church, where his primary focus was building a department to handle member care and retention for Southeast’s almost 4000 constituents. While in this role, he served as the primary vision-caster and program administrator for a counseling center for 7 years. He was responsible for the conception and launch of this center, and oversaw its growth from a start-up phase to a fully-operational center with annual revenue of over $900,000 and a team of 14 licensed professional mental health clinicians.
Most recently, Peter worked for Robert A. Lees & Associates, a law firm located in Greenwood Village, CO that primarily serves the needs of professional mental health counselors in Colorado. Peter was responsible for the law firm’s marketing and outreach efforts, served as an organizational consultant to large group counseling practices, and assisted with corporate formations and conversions.
He grew up in Brazil, South America and speaks Portuguese fluently. Peter loves playing soccer just as much as watching it (Visca Barça!), as well as being an avid reader and a routine Netflix binge-watcher. He lives in Parker with his wife, 3 children, and almost 6-month puppy.
