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. The Barnabas Group realized ministry-minded people could provide so much more if given an opportunity to use their network, time, unique abilities, giftings and resources to help ministries that reflect their true passions. The result is a truly dynamic organization that stays fresh, exciting, and highly relevant to its Partners, ministries and communities it serves.
At these quarterly meetings, pre-vetted, Kingdom-focused ministries share their vision, needs, challenges and opportunities, providing Barnabas Partners an opportunity to come alongside and assist. The needs of presenting ministries at these events are always diverse, and we find a refreshing consistency in our Partners’ passion to serve with integrity and focus. In addition, we hold a few special events throughout the year to promote Partner and ministry fellowship.
