To work with churches in times of stress to encourage and equip for revitalized life and witness.

Pioneer missionary to inland China
In the early church Barnabas was known for his generosity, faith, and encouragement. He was specially gifted to stir hope, confidence, and courage.
Barnabas Initiatives builds with the hopes, insights, and skills of local people. The aim is to see possibilities to build sustainable ventures for a revitalized future.
Like efforts to restore wetlands, initiatives to encourage and assist churches in times of stress strengthen the life and mission of the whole Church.
