About Us

ABOUT US

The John 17:23 Network is being championed by Barnabas Ministries, Inc. Through our groups, pastors from different denominations come together in the kind of unity that Jesus prayed for in John 17:23.

We provide the encouragement, training, and tools needed to foster the creation of John 17:23 groups around the world, as God leads and directs. Our prayer is that every pastor, everywhere would have the opportunity to participate in a John 17:23 pastoral support group.
