Carl Barnhill

Founder of Church Visuals

In the summer of 2006, Carl found himself moving from a junior video editor on a television program called Precepts for Life with Kay Arthur to leading an entire media department. He then found himself a few years later at the largest church in Mississippi, responsible for creating all media for Sunday. It was there that he came to realize that if a church of that size only had one content creator, then a smaller church would not be able to afford a position like that. Every church needs high-quality visuals to share the message of Jesus in an effective way. After serving on staff at Newspring Church for a season, he and his wife Katie founded Twelve Thirty Media in 2015 to help the Church with high-quality ready-made media, custom media and training. In 2023, they rebranded their ministry to Church Visuals with a growing ministry-minded team. They now impact over 60,000 churches and ministries, with their visuals being seen by millions worldwide.

Their passion is to help ministry leaders, like you, visually communicate the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
