Barnabas Ministries

Is an organization made up of dedicated Christians from many local churches who have a concern for people.  The ministry gets its name from a man of the Bible named "Barnabas" which means "Son of Encouragement".  Everyone, at some point, needs to know that someone cares enough to share a burden or a joy.  Encouragement, prayer, and most of all, the love of Jesus Christ, are the focal points at the Barnabas Coffeehouse.

To provide a comfortable place with a warm Christian atmosphere for all to come and fellowship was the goal, so in June 1991 a small group of Christians made a commitment to lease the building at 19 W Spring Street.  Happy with the results of the ministry, in July 1993, after holding several fund raisers, enough money was accumulated for a down payment  to secure a mortgage and purchase the building.  During these past years, numerous people have enjoyed the coffeehouse and many have been helped, befriended, and encouraged.

Barnabas Ministries is a registered 501C3 non-profit corporation and operates under a local board of trustees who represent many Christian denominations.  Barnabas is an evangelical outreach ministry and is not affiliated with any church or denomination.  People are encouraged to attend regular worship services at the church of their choice.  No regularly scheduled meetings are held on Sundays or Wednesday evenings to avoid conflict with routine church schedules.  It is the intent of the ministry to support and cooperate with local churches in servicing the needs of our community.

Other Activities of Barnabas Ministries include:

Hosting special music groups for teens and youth

Providing Christian educational materials such as Bibles, tracts, Christian magazines, etc., free of charge

Hosting evangelists to conduct community crusades

Providing help and support to people experiencing a crisis.  Present at  every Barnabas activity are Christians who are ready to listen, pray, and help in any way that they are able.
