The Barnabas Partnership Story

Our world is in a constant state of change – so is the church. Some churches are experiencing new people coming. Other churches are going through transitions. What may be comfortable yesterday is not anymore!  

Ministering to these people in the name of Christ is also in flux. What was a given years ago may no longer be valid or in existence. How can change take place that will make a positive difference in people’s lives?  

In 2009 Steve Zimmerman saw these shifts take place and had a dream of using a new approach to help churches meet this challenge. He came to realize in his years of church ministry and his exposure to teaching as an adjunct professor that there was a way of merging these two vocations into a new ministry. By that fall, the Barnabas Partnership was born.

Over the years there have been many ministers who have served as a partner with Steve in some capacity with each one bringing their own unique ministry tools. You can get to know more about our present partners by reading some of their thoughts in our newsletter, the E-ncourager.

Whether it is Steve or another qualified partner, we serve to be your Barnabas on your ministry journey.
