BARNABAS

Ministry Residency

to equip encourage empower

The Barnabas Ministry Residency hopes to enlist young men and women and equip them for ministry through personal mentorship, practical resources, leadership opportunities, and hands-on experiences while also financially supporting their seminary education. First Baptist Church of Kenner is actively in the process of being revitalized. God has and is moving in remarkable ways, but we know great potential exists in our area, an area that remains underserved by evangelical churches. The residency will invite you into the great needs of our church and community and aims to encourage and empower you to be a part of God’s work of revitalization and evangelism.
