Welcome to The Barnabas Ministry!

The Barnabas Ministry provides on-line resources to help people deal with unsatisfying, difficult, unhealthy or abusive church experiences.

There are not many resources for people seeking to understand or address a bad church experience. Most churches and other spiritual growth resources are completely ill-equipped to help people deal with the damage done.

Barnabas Ministry articles seek to help fill this gap and provide thoughtful discussion at the heart of the issue, from somebody who has seen these dynamics in multiple churches and from multiple perspectives over the course of several decades.

If you or a loved one is involved in a troubling church situation, the Spiritual Abuse and Recovery section is the place you want to start.

Another important section to check out is
Biblical Interpretation. Bible misuse is at the root of a lot of bad stuff in churches.
