Hands On Equipping

On Operation Barnabas, students are coached and equipped in hands on ministry opportunities. We not only utilize training experience to help students effectively ministry to others, but we create opportunities to put what students are learning immediately into practice whether that be in manual labor, park programs, interacting with people at restaurants, in church programs, and so much more. Students are taught a ministry mindset that looks to be ON MISSION wherever our teams are and after our students return home.

Discipleship in Community

While on Operation Barnabas, students are discipled by adult leaders who deeply care about high school students and their spiritual growth. Spending seven weeks traveling, ministering, and learning from our leaders creates a vulnerability for students to be poured into. Traveling with peers for this length of time creates a lasting bond between team members which cultivates a space for students to be sharpened through each other in a strong community.

Exponential Spiritual Growth

Operation Barnabas students are challenged in their walk with the Lord which results in more deeply knowing and cherishing Jesus. Because we equip our students in the Bible and challenge them through OnTrack Devotions, we typically see students come to have a deeper desire to know more about God’s character as they experience His wooing in different ways over their seven weeks of OB.
