A Barnabas group is a community of women in the same phase of life who meet one or two times a month. These groups help create genuine spiritual growth and encourage women to develop deep authentic relationships in a short amount of time. A Barnabas group is not a bible study, a home community, a Sunday school class or a scripted gathering. It is a group of women who transparently share their lives in a deep way amidst a confidential and trusted environment.
Group times usually center on a question given ahead of time. People participating in the group need to be willing to be authentic and vulnerable with their answers. Willingness to be open about the heart of who you are and discuss what your needs are emotionally, mentally and spiritually are a requirement. Typical questions that could be discussed are:
What challenges are keeping you from excelling at God’s work?
What is your greatest loss?
What’s been your greatest joy?
What is God working in you right now?
Honesty, scripture and prayer set the foundation of the discussion. Keeping confidences is a must. Members will be held accountable for their confidence, avoiding gossip, and attending regularly.
