Our Mission

Getting Real, Walking Together, Changing the World

 

Barn International Ministries is called to minister to the hearts of men by helping to create redemptive communities of intimate and authentic friendships, both locally and internationally, which encourage men to embrace their true identity as God’s sons, and to walk together with other men as allies, toward becoming stronger husbands, fathers and friends. We invite men on a journey toward the reorientation of their good heart, by creating a safe environment for that to be accomplished. Our intent is to foster an environment of intentionality, where a man can hear the call of Jesus to come up and out of his past wounds and hurts and into a healed and whole place, where he can in turn offer healing to others. It is our deep desire that all men, regardless of race, nationality or religious background, experience the freedom and abundant life available to them through living a life in Christ Jesus, and by the leading and direction of the Holy Spirit. We believe this message can and is changing the world.

We weren't created to walk alone! Someone smart once said "A true friend is someone who knows the song of your heart and can sing it back to you when you've forgotten the words"

Saturdays - 8 a.m.

Several groups meet on Saturday mornings!

FROM THE HEAD TO THE HEART

 

“Sometimes what we think we need or want is just enough to start us on a great journey.  While the original hopes and aspirations we were initially looking for in those needs and wants are not the answers, they do start us on an adventuresome “journey of the heart.”  It may come out of our own desperation to find the life that God has for us, or it may be a directive from God…most likely a combination of both.  Whichever the case may be, God has many ways to reveal His Son Jesus to us as we take this journey with others.”

 

“During a men’s event held in Buena Vista, CO in May of 2004, I witnessed and experienced true friendships, authenticity, and transparency that I’d never experienced in any church I’d ever attended, nor any other of my “Christian experiences”.  I knew a bit about religion and performance-based Christianity but had missed the boat when it came to having a relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.  What I experienced in 2004 was something that I was compelled to share with others.  In May of 2005 I invited a few men to take a journey with me at my brother-in-law’s barn.  Then…I was looking for real friendships, now, through others, I realize that I always had the best friend I could ever have the whole time in Jesus.”

 

“This continues to be revealed to me through the men at The Barn.  So many lives have touched mine over the last 15 years there.  While friendships this side of eternity may come and go (I’ve learned to be ok with that), the friendship of Jesus is constant.  Amid my own mistakes (sin, shame, rebellion) as well as the restoration, forgiveness and victories, the friendships at The Barn have led me to walk with God and not try to do it alone.  I can honestly say that some of the most fulfilling chapters of my life have occurred through the weekly gatherings at The Barn.” 

 

“Relationships are important, are not made, they are discovered on life’s journey with others.”

BAND OF BROTHERS

 

Men from over 20 different churches. Some don't have a church. Our primary concern is that men don't walk alone. We strongly believe the local church is foundational to the work of God on the Earth. Yet we know that many men (and women, for that matter) slip in and out of a worship service and never connect with others. Far too many men can't name one or two close friends that they could reach out to in a time of need. The Barn provides a place for men to connect that is safe and confidential, so that they can feel free to be honest and real with each other, which creates an environment to hear and learn from the stories of others. As we like to say, "What's said in The Barn stays in The Barn". It also allows men to develop those close relationships with other men, that many men are currently lacking.  We are not here to fix anyone, or do a bunch of teaching and preaching. We listen well, share stories, walk with God, and follow our hearts.

NEW GUYS SHOW UP EVERY WEEK

 

We believe the chances are pretty good that either you are in the midst of a battle, you've just come out of one, or you're just heading into one. Whether you ever come to The Barn or not, our deepest hope for you is that you won't fight alone. If you're in a great place or a tough place, you are welcome at The Barn. New guys show up every week.  Join us.

Hear From the Barn Brothers

Every man has a battle to fight. DON'T FIGHT ALONE!
