You may ask: “Why is it called Operation Barnabas?” Barnabas was Paul’s companion, who helped him in his missionary journey. His name means “son of encouragement.” We hope to encourage our military and their families with the Gospel in action!
In response in 2007, The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod’s Ministry to the Armed Forces ministry began Operation Barnabas. Through Operation Barnabas, together:
- We provide care to reserve chaplains, their families and congregations, in the only program of its kind in the nation.
- We provide training and guidance to local congregations to provide care and support to our military members, their families and veterans in our local communities.
Local congregations across America are providing care and support to military members, their families and veterans who have borne the burden of our nation’s battles.
Heavenly Host Lutheran Church is an
OPERATION BARNABAS CONGREGATION.
Thank you for being a significant partner with us during these crucial times! Don’t forget to check us out on the web and Facebook.
