The Benefits of Joining The Barnabas Group

Membership benefits defined
      The Barnabas Group (TBG) members leverage their strengths for the benefit of ministries and the Kingdom. We connect and network with ministries who learn from each other and share ideas and best practices.
      The Barnabas Group provides a safe place for Christian leaders and ministries to connect, work together, encourage and engage one another, all with the same purpose: To be used by God, through what He places on your heart.
      The Barnabas Group is collaborative - not competitive. At any given meeting, you'll find like-minded members who have a heart to serve in the same category as you, providing peer-to-peer collaboration.
      The Barnabas Group focuses on presenting opportunities that fit your individual talents, gifting, network and resources. TBG is not ‘donor driven’ - there are no development people - it is member funded through annual member donations and there are rarely direct appeals for funds at TBG meetings.
