Q?

What about pastors and priests who want to join TBG?

A.

Pastors and priests can join The Barnabas Group (TBG) as associate members for a reduced donation to cover event costs.

At times, TBG members may decide to pay for a pastor's associate dues and fees. The benefit to the pastors is to learn about ministries that they might never know about and possibly take them back to their churches, to receive interesting teaching, and to introduce their church.

Pastors also meet and fellowship with business people from outside their churches and have a time to "get away" from the demands of the day. The benefit to TBG is to gain fellowship and to give the ministries that present a greater audience of members who can further their ministry.
