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.
Barnabas has allowed so much more of my life to be kingdom focused. God has allowed both my Christian and non-Christian colleagues to engage and help ministries. The believers are using their skill sets for kingdom purposes and feel they are doing what God has called them to do. My contacts who don't have a relationship with Christ are getting introduced to Christianity in a new way and while they are serving, they're learning more about how the body of Christ operates and why.Mike Ostrom, DFW 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
Barnabas has given me a place to use my marketplace skills and experience to help further the Kingdom by helping ministries who come through our door. I am always amazed to see the work that God is doing through various ministries. My participation in Barnabas validates that God finds me as useful in the workplace as He does those who volunteer directly in or through the church. It has given me the opportunity to continue contributing in the last third of my life. I have also met many amazing and wonderful like-minded men and women of God, some who have become friends and many whom I have had the privilege of working alongside in Barnabas.Kim Pace, SF Bay Area Chapter
