The only collaboration of leaders dedicated to maximizing ministry potential by meeting nonprofit challenges with business perspective to advance kingdom work
Thousands of ministries are in need of Kingdom-minded business leaders
Each day, ministries are facing obstacles that hinder their impact of Christ’s Kingdom. Ranging from logistics and operations to networking and finances, these ministries are in desperate need of today’s business men and women.
Meet the Barnabas Group
Through The Barnabas Group, partners are responding to their God-given calling, capitalizing on their unique experiences in business and life, to maximize ministry potential.
Ministries are chosen with great care, reviewed and vetted prior to presenting opportunities for service. Partners can trust the ministries are Christ-focused and responsibly run.
Ultimately, we desire to expand God’s Kingdom and grow stronger in relationship with Him. We do that by using our skills and passions to team up with exceptional ministries in meaningful ways.
We ask ministries to be upfront with their specific needs, and go boldly forth with the hope of changing the world with our God-given gifts and divine appointments.
Our Unique Approach
Since 2000, God has been using the Barnabas Group to make a powerful impact on ministries around the corner and around the globe. Too many great individuals and organizations support ministries primarily with their checkbook. Barnabas realized ministry-minded people could provide so much more.
Attend an event
Our ministry’s core is our quarterly events, connecting marketplace leaders to ministries, but local and abroad.
Listen to presentations
We invite 3-6 ministries to give a short presentation on what they are doing and how you can help.
Connect with presenters at their discretion
After the event, attendees connect with presenters to see how their time, talent and contacts could support their work.
It allowed me to become both aware of and involved in this fantastic tapestry of what God is doing around the world. It was like stepping out of a fishbowl into the ocean. God is working in so many ways through so many people and Barnabas allowed me to be connected within the Body of Christ in ways I never knew were possible.Pat Brady, Chicago Chapter
Barnabas is a blessing to see other ministries find their identity and messaging to see lives changed. It’s an honor to help them and serve alongside them. Also, Barnabas allows for great networking with other great business minded servant heart leaders. I love the fellowship and support within the Barnabas community.Johnny Holloway, Greater Houston Chapter
One of the reasons I joined Barnabas was to get connected with other Christian business leaders with purpose-driven ambitions whom I could trust. What I received (having attended just one meeting so far!) was the opportunity to team up on Kingdom-glorifying work, and I’ve never enjoyed working on this project more.Scott Nenninger, Chicago Chapter
