Alan came to Christ in high school at a Young Life camp in Colorado.
Alan has a boring resume—he has worked for the same company since he was 10 years old and has had the same position since 1986. Barnhart Crane and Rigging Company is a Heavy Lifting and Heavy Transport company based in Memphis, TN with offices in 20 cities in the US. By God’s grace,the company has grown an average of 22% per year for 28 years. Barnhart provides services to heavy industry and construction, focusing on power plants (wind, nuclear, and fossil fuel) and the petrochemical industry.
Alan’s fear of affluence caused him to cap his lifestyle. His passion for missions has taken him to over 50 countries. The company profits are invested in strategic missions. Barnhart team members and spouses take part in the decision-making process. Over 50 team members have traveled internationally in that effort.
Alan has an amazing wife, Katherine, and 6 children (28, 25, 23, 21, 18, and 15) and two daughters-in-law. He is active at First Evangelical Church and the Boy Scouts.
