with Leaders

“You made it possible for us to remain in the Lord’s service when every reason urged us to retreat from discouragement, retreat from lack of sufficient funds and retire from insufficient know-how. You have encouraged us, funded us and educated us when we so much needed it. If we are a kite the Lord is flying, you are the string in his hands.” Francis Omondi, senior ministry leader, Kenya

Equipping, supporting, training and encouraging – Barnabas Aid is partnering with senior Christian leaders to enable them to keep serving in key ministries in contexts of pressure and persecution.

with Bible and Theological Colleges

“This study is blessing of God for me. The Lord … has transformed my mind.” A senior church leader in Uzbekistan

In the last two years, Barnabas Aid has supported 10,240 Christians who are equipping themselves for service by studying. We support theological colleges, Bible colleges, and other Christian training institutes in 26 countries, including Algeria, China, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Tajikistan. We also fund specialised training to equip leaders with particular skills needed in their own ministry contexts and to help them face persecution.

through Resources

“It was my great desire to get this Bible… The whole congregation will be blessed through this book.” Pastor Sharif Khokhar in Pakistan, who received an Urdu Study Bible from Barnabas Aid

Many courageous Christian leaders are ministering in situations of great poverty and hardship. They may have few or no resources to help them, sometimes not even a Bible. Barnabas Aid provides Bibles, reference books and all kinds of ministry resources to enable them to function more effectively. Strengthening pastors enables them to strengthen their congregations, so they can stand in the face of persecution. In the last two years, we provided 1,480,834 pieces of Christian literature, including Bibles and other items in 14 languages and 24 countries.

with Pastors and Evangelists

“I thank you and the brothers and sisters in Barnabas Aid organisation who are a great blessing to me and my family, as you have been my partners in the work which the Lord has accomplished through me. I am truly very encouraged and relieved on the issue of finance for my needs and the needs of my family.” Pastor H. from Algeria

Barnabas Aid has helped to support 573 full-time Christian workers in 33 countries in the last two years. Ministering in their homeland or amongst their own people group, these evangelists, church-planters and pastors are serving faithfully in contexts of hardship and hostility.

    • Heavenly Father, we pray to You for our Christian brothers and sisters in north-eastern Nigeria, who are so vulnerable in the face of attacks by Boko Haram militants. We remember especially those who used to live in Madagali, in Adamawa state, until their town was seized by Boko Haram two months ago. We think of those who were betrayed into the hands of Boko Haram by their neighbours pointing out Christian homes or places where Christians had hidden. We bring before You those who saw their menfolk beheaded, and women forcibly converted to Islam. We cry out to You to intervene and bring an end to the murderous attacks by Boko Haram. We pray for all the thousands of Nigerian Christians who have suffered in similar attacks that they will not lose hope or faith in You, but will know Your peace which passes understanding.

    • Pray for a pastor in the Kilimanjaro region of Tanzania whose home was attacked on 17 May; two of his children were injured. When he went to report the incident to the police, he was falsely accused of raping a young woman who had left Islam to follow Christ. The pastor had taken her into his home, along with four other converts, after she was thrown out by her family; it was they who made the accusation against him. He has faced much opposition because of his fruitful outreach to Muslims, and several failed attempts have been made to frame him with false accusations. Pray that the sovereign Lord will help him and that he will not be disgraced (Isaiah 50:7-9). Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Sun, Oct 2014 00:00

    • A church on Mafia Island, part of the Zanzibar archipelago, was attacked on 9 May by around 80 young Muslim men armed with arrows and knives. The church members, who are mainly converts from Islam, had gathered for their weekly overnight prayer session when the attackers appeared, shouting “death to ritad’i” (those who leave Islam). They set fi re to the church, leaving the interior in ruins, and then went in search of the pastor, but he was not at home. The incident followed a bomb blast at another church in Mwanza in mainland Tanzania on 5 May, in which a worker at the church rest house was critically injured. Pray that the authorities will effectively address the increasing incidence of attacks against churches. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Sat, Oct 2014 00:00

    • Cry out to the Lord for the many Christian victims of kidnapping by Boko Haram in Nigeria. Remember especially the more than two hundred teenage girls who were taken from the Government Girls Secondary School in Chibok, Borno state, on the night of 14 April. A video released in May showed eight of the girls speaking about their ordeal; they plead for their release, and one says, “I never expected to suffer like this in my life.” It is believed that they have been divided into at least four groups and that most of them are being held in camps outside Nigeria. They are hungry, while some are unwell and need medical attention. Pray for their safe release and for that of other kidnapped Christians. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Fri, Oct 2014 00:00

    • Deadly attacks by Boko Haram continue relentlessly in Northern Nigeria. On 15 June, gunmen descended on the remote Christian village of Daku in Borno state; they killed 15 people, chasing and shooting those trying to escape, and torched a church, several homes and a market. Two weeks later, scores of people were killed in attacks on four villages near the mainly Christian town of Chibok; in Kwada the assailants burst into four churches and opened fire on worshippers before setting the buildings on fire. Pray that our distressed and persecuted brothers and sisters may find strength in the Lord their God (1 Samuel 30:6) as they pass through this bitter ordeal.
