Joseph, a Levite from Cyprus, whom the apostles called Barnabas, which means “son of encouragement.” —Acts 4:36

You want to make a difference for the Kingdom of God, but you’re not a pastor or a missionary, just an ordinary believer. Good news – you can serve as a Barnabas.

A Barnabas creates a ripple effect, empowering others and spreading outward into the broader community. Just as Barnabas empowered Paul, and Paul empowered Timothy, you can have an impact that multiplies far beyond yourself.

Barnabas was someone who, instead of taking center stage himself, empowered others. Becoming Barnabas focuses on practical “how questions”:

  • How can you serve as a Barnabas – a son or daughter of encouragement?
  • How can you disciple, develop, and support those around you?
  • How can that relational investment lead to a powerful impact on the church and on the surrounding community?

Becoming Barnabas: A Ministry of Coming Alongside is about the Barnabases in our world: the people who are instrumental in developing others, the people we haven’t heard of, the people who are rarely in the spotlight themselves but make that spotlight a reality for others. It is the cornerstone for Barnabas Ministry Coach Training. 

By learning about the quiet but tremendous power of Barnabas ministry, you can make a difference for the Kingdom of God.
