Barnabas was a New Testament character whose real name was Joseph but the apostles gave him the nickname, "Barnabas" which means "Son of Encouragement". We want this website to be a means of encouragement to our fellow believers and leaders.
Because we understand that our site is but one of many that seek to encourage other believers. We are just one of a “network of lighthouses” along a dangerous coastline.
We hope whatever light shines for you from this part of that network will encourage you on your journey.
This is the title of the book I have written as a tribute to my beloved wife, Bev.

Most of the letters can be found in the book which is available for purchase on this site.

To be an agent of God's healing for those who are casualties in the spiritual conflict in that they have suffered emotional, relational or spiritual injuries.
To sound a warning for those who have surrendered their spiritual "cutting edge" in preference for a safer or more comfortable journey and to encourage them to re-engage with their high calling.

Reading the prayers of other fellow believers has often provided the needed ignition for my own prayers.The Psalms are the classic example of this dynamic. I invite you to come and visit and, as appropriate, make the prayers here your prayers. I'll leave the door to this prayer room unlocked so you can call in anytime. I would be delighted if some of these prayers energized your heart and relationship with God. [More]
