"It is better to give than to receive."

At the Barn we believe that every person is gifted and therefore has a place (or places) of service and ministry. We want to help you find your place! The first step is looking through the many opportunities, and emailing us! Scroll down to the bottom and check as many ministries as you’d like to be connect with! Also, if you aren’t sure what your gifts are, you can check “I’m not sure” and we will can connect you with our Volunteer Coordinator to help you!

Compassion Team

Matthew 25:35 says “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in,  I needed clothes and you clothed me”  We have food drives, house the homeless, and look after orphans.  A very real way to give back some of what God has given us!

ESL Ministry

Our English as a Second Language course ministers to Spanish speaking people in our community who are learning English. Can you speak Spanish? Or would you like to help with this ministry logistically? We would love to connect with you!

GO (Global Outreach) Team

This team oversees our missions initiatives overseas as well as supporting Freedom Outreach.  If you have a heart for the the lost or those who give their lives to missions, email our leaders.

Well Digging in Africa

In many rural villages in Togo, West Africa, there is a lack of clean water for daily drinking and cooking resulting in risks for health problems, water-borne diseases, and even death.  There is a great need for wells to be installed and maintained in order to bring clean groundwater to the surface for daily use.

Missionaries to West Asia

We support two missionaries who serve in West Asia. For their safety we cannot share their names. Below is a description of what they both are doing.

Missionary 1: I work with a media team that has responsibility for the Central Asia region.  The Lord has used me to lead several projects for getting the Word out to people in their heart language.  Since the people in these regions are mainly oral learners, our projects have focused on media that fits their culture….  

Read the rest of their story

Youth and young adults like comic books, so we have produced a NT illustrated book on the life of Jesus and short illustrated booklets in 3 languages going from creation to the start of the church. Currently, I am involved in a project to get the Word into the 30 plus minority language groups in Central Asia that have little or no audio-visual tools to share the Gospel message. We have a short 9 minute video that has been well received by people from the major language groups in the region. Our desire is to get this video, which can be made available through the internet and cell phones, into as many of these minority languages as possible, so workers with these people groups have a tool to share the Gospel with the people.

Missionary 2: From September through May I host and sometimes facilitate a weekly English speaking women’s Bible study for women from a variety of mission organizations. While all the women have some ability to speak and understand English, not all are native speakers. Over the last years there have been women from Romania, Albania, Russia, Korea, Hong Kong, as well as Britain, Australia and America. We talk, view DVDs by a variety of teachers, discuss the teachings, pray in small groups, eat, celebrate the birth of babies and other events important in the lives of women, hug and cry together. Some of the women have told me our weekly meetings are a life line for them. While it is a lot of work to prepare our small apartment and snacks every week this is what Father has spent my whole life preparing me to do and I love it.

One other privilege I have is mentoring women from a variety of organizations either in person or through Skype. This past year I have started working with refugees. We distributed staple food and clothing to over 200 refugee families. Since most of those who came to receive the bags of food were women, I gave them a traditional hug and kiss and spoke a blessing over them. They also had access to scripture material in their language and heard the gospel message.

However, no worker or media product can change the heart of a person without the power of the Holy Spirit. We would love to have you join our work by praying that the Holy Spirit would open the hearts of the people in our region and by praying for our work.
