Operation Barnabas is a summer discipleship program for students that is sponsored by CE National, a church effectiveness ministry that is affiliated with the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches. Here’s a recent post from their site about the lasting impact of Operation Barnabas.
Some may wonder if the impact of being a part of Operation Barnabas lasts or if it fades after a few weeks of being back home.
Recently, an OB alum from the 2014 NorthEast team shared the following on her social media…
“God showed me so much about his LOVE and GRACE through OB. My confidence in Him, and myself, grew so much by God working through Operation Barnabas. I learned how to share my faith with others and come alongside these people and love them. It was the HARDEST summer, but it was also the BEST.
“I want to thank everyone who prayed and donated for me to be a part of Operation Barnabas, summer of 2014. I am still reminded of this trip almost daily…the time spent traveling from church to church in an old, blue bus (without air conditioning) with 30 teens and 5 leaders were some of the BEST memories and I still treasure them.
“I learned so much through this trip, and I want to thank the leaders who made this trip incredible. These people aren’t just disciples, they are disciple-makers!”
