Barnabas1040 is working “hands on” to encourage the planting of indigenous churches through nationals in several restricted access nations. 

The men we support financially are proven soul-winners. Most of them have endured persecution for Christ. Some have been in jail for witnessing. Many have lost their homes and family. It is our privilege to come alongside and enable them to devote their lives full time to proclaiming Christ. They are accountable to local IB missionaries who provide mentoring and continual training.

In addition to these countries, we are in the process of cultivating contacts in several of the surrounding Asian countries. It takes time to develop a credible presence in a gospel-resistant country.

We develop a presence by serving in existing local churches, most of which must operate underground. In addition, we teach in Bible colleges, as well as do personal soul-winning and discipleship. As God raises up local believers, we attempt to impart a biblical vision to reach their own people for Christ. We also provide financial assistance to local church planters and evangelists, most of whom have shown a willingness to risk their lives for the gospel’s sake.

  • China
