In May, over one hundered Charlotte area Christian business leaders gathered to learn about and discuss ways to help the ministry of With Open Eyes at the quarterly Barnabas Group Breakfast.
At The Barnabas Group’s quarterly meetings, presenting ministries share their vision, needs, challenges and blatant realities, providing Barnabas Group members an opportunity to come along side and assist where they can and where they choose. And although the needs of presenting ministries at these events are always diverse, there is a consistency in the members to serve with integrity and passion regardless of need.
With Open Eyes’ Monica Guffey, presented the ministry at the breakfast and then each table of members discussed ideas and connections they could help make to further the ministry’s mission. The WOE team came away with numerous new friends of the ministry ready to jump in and help where needed to increase resources. In addition, new connections for potential partnerships were made with other presenting ministries that morning.
The Barnabas Group is truly a beautiful display of the body of Christ working together to further Kingdom work globally and right here in our own backyard.
