Connectional Table
Executive Secretary
Chicago, Illinois

Amy Valdez Barker is the Executive Secretary of the Connectional Table for The United Methodist Church.  She has served the church in this position since 2013.  She is an ordained Deacon of the North Georgia Annual Conference and has a PhD in Christian Education and Congregational Studies from Garrett Evangelical Theological Seminary.  

Amy has served in The United Methodist Church in many different capacities throughout her life.  Her participation in the General Church began at the tender age of twelve-years old when she served as the youngest Board member on the General Commission on Religion and Race.  She feels humbled by the opportunity to serve God through this work.

In addition to her ministry, she delights in spending time with her two children, Ashtin who is 12 and Tré who is 8.  She is happily married to Richard Barker and they love living in the suburbs of the “Windy City” of Chicago, Illinois.
