For pastor Mike Barnett, Easter Sunday, with its message of rebirth, is one of the biggest days of the year.

Q and A: Time for another Super Sunday


Seven years after he brought a young church to Farmington, Mike Barnett is headed back west.

Barnett came to Minnesota nearly a decade ago to launch New Heights Christian Fellowship. He brought the church to Farmington in 2004. But now, he's going home. He'll head to San Diego this summer to start another new church.

Since this is a significant time of year for pastors, we caught up with Barnett last week to talk about the church and what Holy Week means for him.
