Barnabas Ministry


An effort by the Ohio Association of the 4C’s to enhance the ministry of Christian missionaries and pastors by bringing Biblically based, Spirit empowered prayer, encouragement, and support to them in their ministry context.

Brothers, if you have a message of encouragement for the people, please speak.” (Acts 13:15)

In the next 10-12 years the vision of the Ohio Association BARNABAS MINISTRY is to provide meaningful prayer, encouragement and support to 40 missionaries and 15 pastors on an ongoing basis.

The Ohio Association has called Dr. David R. Kimberly to develop the Barnabas Ministry to such a level.
