We've been involved with The Barnabas Center in various ways throughout the last 15 years. I say with great assurance that our marriage, our family, and the lives our our friends have been significantly shaped by this unique group of folks. In a world that promises quick fixes and 10 steps to a better everything, The Barnabas Center offers a deeper hope. A hope that is not dependent on changed situations... a hope that cannot be taken away. I consider it a great honor to support this ministry, and frequently refer others to both the proactive (training) and reactive (counseling) divisions.
My relationships have been greatly enhanced as a reult of my participation in the Barnabas Center Training program. I gained valuable self-awareness, as well skills in caring for others who might be struggling with disappointment or difficulties in life. The instruction I received through this program at The Barnabas Center has proven transformational for me and the way I relate with those in my family and sphere of influence. I am grateful for the work these counselors do.
My wife and I have been involved with The Barnabas Center in one way or another for 20 years. It started with us having just moved to Charlotte and two years into a marriage that was struggling to put it mildly. My beautiful wife, who was made to be loved by her husband, wasn't getting much love! Frankly, I was too much into my own selfish world, all the while my wife was living a lonely existence. Thankfully, she had the courage to ask for help. Someone told her about TBC and out of desperation she went for a visit. In time I came as well (with heal marks in the parking lot!). Over time they helped us both see our own "stuff" and to begin to deal with it. Most importantly, they helped us see that God often uses the difficulties in life - like a struggling marriage - to speak to our hearts. That's what heppened in our case and we've never been the same since. Because I've seen first hand the blessing TBC has been to so many individuals and couples, it's an honor to sever on the board as we work to be a blessing to as many as the Lord might bring our way
