In 2007, The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod’s Ministry to the Armed Forces began project Operation Barnabas.  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.
