Barnabas Ministries is a ministry organization dedicated to advancing God’s kingdom through evangelism, missionary assistance, and helping believers fulfill their calling in Christ. It was launched in January of 2002 by the Rev. Rick Hutchison to serve as an umbrella organization for the evangelistic and missionary ministries to which he felt called. He serves as President and Executive Director of the ministry.

The organization is named in honor of the believer who brought Saul of Tarsus from virtual obscurity to prominent ministry, helping him become Paul, the Apostle to the Gentiles. Barnabas’ name means literally ‘son of consolation.’ He was a great Encourager who saw others’ potential, was a mentor and helper to many, and devoted himself to helping others succeed for Christ.

Like Barnabas of old, we seek to serve Christ by serving others and helping many to achieve their full potential in Christ.

What We Do

  • Evangelism: We are involved in direct evangelistic preaching and one-on-one sharing of the Gospel, with the goal of leading people to Christ.   Read more ...
  • Teaching and Training: Helping believers to become well established in their faith is a passion of ours, and helping local pastors and ministry leaders to be well trained and to pass that training on to others is a priority.  Read more ...
  • Encouragement: Encouraging those in the ministry and local believers is another major focus of our ministry.   Read more ...
  • Partnerships: We have developed dynamic partnerships with local ministries several world areas, helping them to develop their capacity to minister in and to their own cultures.  Read more ...

Why We Go

There is one key concept that guides every decision that we make as a ministry:  the Great Commission.  This serves as the blueprint for our strategies.

Our primary goal is to make disciples.  That begins with evangelism because people must hear!  Those who have heard and believed must be taught and grounded in their faith so that the fruit endures.

While decisions for Christ are important, they are the beginning of the process, not the end goal.  Our passion is to see the establishment of firm, committed, trained, and growing disciples of Christ.

Barnabas Ministries goes wherever God provides an open door and the means to enter. Since 2002 we have ministered:
