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

March 7                   BETTER TOGETHER

The multi-site movement, normally associated with larger churches, also creates an option for small and mid-sized churches. Where two (or more) sister churches are located in relative proximity, people and resources can be combined to create one stronger church in several locations. For a plateaued or declining church open to essential change, transition to a church of two sites can be a path to revitalization. For a stronger church willing to sacrifice, nurture relationships, and practice sensitivity, a multi-site meld can expand ministry. On Saturday, March 7, at Stewardship University, held at Calvary Church, 1051 Landis Valley Road, Lancaster (Pa.), Barnabas Initiatives is sponsoring a workshop, "Better Together," from 11 am to 12:15 pm to assist churches exploring a meld strategy for optimum health, growth, and mission. For more information, go online to Stewardship University 2020.



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.
