Iron Forums Advisors | Here to Serve

Jesse Barnett, Snellville Forum

Let’s Connect


Welcome! I’m Jesse.

Hello! I’m so glad you stopped by to check out this page. Here’s a bit about me. I’m a rare Atlanta native and I currently live in Loganville, GA. My wife, Becca, and I have been married for 22 years. Our daughter, Julia, is 20 and currently attending the University of West Georgia and our son, Joel, is 16 and a junior in high school. We attend 12Stone Church where we serve as small group leaders and in various other capacities. I also lead our 12th grade guys on Wednesday nights. We love to visit the beach, Disney, and the mountains in the fall, and are die-hard UGA fans, but most of all we just love to be together and laugh often.  

As a business owner myself, I was glad to discover Iron Forums. I believe it’s important for men to have a place to connect and invest in each other and I love getting to connect with members at in-person Forum events and one-on-one as an advisor. My hope is to get to know you better, so if you would like to connect or if there is something I can help you with, don’t hesitate to reach out!

Favorite Quotes

“If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.”

― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

We do not have to be passive victims of life, waiting until a distant God chooses to do something. We are friends and allies of our intimate God; he has given us power and authority to change the course of events ourselves. Human beings are meant to intervene, engage, to make a difference. We can move mountains. It’s in our DNA.”

—John Eldredge, Moving Mountains: Praying with Passion, Confidence, and Authority

Bucket List

I would love to one day see the Northern Lights in person, build a log cabin with my son, move to the beach with my wife, and learn to play the guitar—not necessarily in that order.

#1 Business Accomplishment

I’m proud of the books I’ve helped write and the words I’ve written that have circled the globe.

What I’m Learning

Currently, I’m learning to be fully present wherever I am, to build in more time to rest, and to be very careful with my “yes” so I make the best use of my time and stay on mission.

A Bit About My Business Background

I currently run a business called Message Accelerator where I help people multiply the impact and reach of their message. I do this through a mix of blueprints, coaching, and creation services. My clients generally fall into one of three paths—Ministry Accelerator, Book Accelerator, or Platform Accelerator.

The Ministry Accelerator focuses on churches and ministry organizations who need help with messaging, websites, digital ministry, and social media. With the Book Accelerator, I help people write and publish their book or turn their book into other things like workshops, keynotes, courses, or memberships. Platform Accelerator is designed for individuals or organizations who want to maximize their intellectual property to expand their influence and teach or train others. 

For you, the members of Iron Forums, I can provide a great second set of eyes on your messaging and communication. I could help you strategize and uncover opportunities to communicate more effectively with your customers so your business can grow.
