When people think of Operation Barnabas, often the programming aspects come to mind first; however, OB is so much more than puppets and pantomimes! Here is what one of our Northern California OB Team members had to say about his experience this summer.
OB has been huge in my spiritual growth. Having leaders who are committed and willing to walk beside me has encouraged me to be bolder and courageous. I have learned that denying myself and serving others is more fulfilling than serving myself. I have also seen that living a life following Jesus is hard, but the way I want to live. I have seen that I can be a leader because being a leader is not about having control, but it is all about putting others before yourself and serving others.
Serving on Operation Barnabas can produce true spiritual growth and provide lasting training in ministry and character qualities. OB can be a great step in discipleship and leadership development for high-school students. Information and applications for 2019 are available online now at operationbarnabas.net. Who can you encourage to apply for Operation Barnabas 2019?
