John Acklin, Treasurer, Linesville First Baptist Church, Linesville, PA.

John Acklin

Custodian / Grounds

Hello, I am John Acklin and serve as groundskeeper and custodian here at FBC since we created the new campus in 2002. It has always been my calling to create the kind of "curb appeal" through lawn care/flowers/shrubs and trees so that people will enjoy the experience of meeting God's people and worshipping in this place.

I have been married to Jeanne for 46 years and we have been blessed with 3 children and twin grandsons. Jeanne, after retirement, also helps me out with the cleaning on the south half of our building - when she is not working with horses. My day job includes being the Athletic Director for the past 42 years at Linesville High School and now consolidated into Conneaut Area Senior High (C.A.S.H.).

Worship Coordinator / / 814-683-5244 x 105

Hello there friends!

My name is Christine Barnes, and I am so blessed to be the Worship Coordination here at Linesville First Baptist Church!  I am a wife, mother, registered nurse, artist and vocalist.  It is my honor and privilege to work with the musicians, singers and technicians in our church family.  My role is to select music, organize and encourage volunteers, and motivate others to use their gifts for God's glory.

My dear husband, Matthew, and I have lived in this beautiful area all our lives, and FBC linesville has been our church family for over three decades.  We have been married for 26 years and have three grown children.


I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior as a young child, and was baptized as a teen in the "old church" by Rev. Art Barnes, and Rev. Russ Hines.  God is my rock and my salvation! 

It is my joy to serve my church family and may God always receive all the honor and glory and praise, forevermore!
