Here at Barnabas Ministries our singular passion and focus is to bring pastors from different denominational backgrounds into authentic spiritual and relational unity based on Jesus’ prayer in John 17:23.
We do this by gathering pastors into John 17:23 pastoral support groups. The model for these groups has developed from thousands of group meetings over 16 years. We work to expand the reach of these groups to as many pastors as we can, whether it be a one-on-one conversation with a pastor, a workshop at a gathering of pastors, a webcast, or speaking engagements.
We want every pastor in every group to have a quality group experience so that pastor can be encouraged to thrive, not just survive in ministry. We place emphasis on the development of resources and training for group leaders, and we work to follow-up with groups to provide ongoing support and encouragement.
Finally, we seek to inspire and encourage groups to work together, just as Jesus prayed: “so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me.”
