Barnabas Group SWOT
‘Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, Threats’
An on-going proactive service provided by Barnabas partners and lead by Alan Weisenberger, in support of evolving and growing faith-based ministries.
Usually 8-10 partners invest 2-2.5 hours of interactive discussion with a ministry leader/leaders.
They focus on a pertinent (or specific) strategic challenge (Big Question) where partners have the opportunity to leverage their experience and talents in support of these leaders. Where else can a ministry leader receive 20 hours of high-powered Godly consulting advice? Where else can a Barnabas partner have opportunity to make such a Kingdom investment using their gifts and talents?
