|Barnabas Ministry Site Information|
|The Barnabas Ministry was
started in 1999 with the idea of helping those involved
in a particular church movement. Over time, it has
become a resource used by people around the country and
the world from many different churches to understand
negative church and spiritual experiences. This is the
primary goal of the Barnabas Ministry.
The Barnabas Ministry takes its name from a man in the early church named Barnabas, who helped Christians in his day deal with difficult church-related situations. You can read more in The Story of Barnabas.
Ministry website is run by a person who was raised Roman
Catholic. He got involved in the churches of Christ back
in the days of the "Crossroads Movement" in the 1980's
and continued through its evolution into the
International Churches of Christ before leaving that
movement in 2004. He has been involved in planting
churches in Arizona and Colorado, and sadly also in
numerous church splits and conflicts. He served in
full-time ministry for a time and in numerous
lay-leadership areas as a deacon and small-group leader.
He later became involved in Christian Churches utilizing
a Willow Creek/Saddleback approach to ministry and
served as an elder for a time. He brings a wealth of
experience to the Barnabas Ministry.
While not taking extreme steps to conceal his identity, he chooses to be anonymous going forward because sometimes bad people do bad things with things intended for good on the Internet.
The site is undergoing a little online facelift right now. This is some old stuff that could be going away soon.
