Confidential and Safe

     There are those times when a Pastor or Minister needs counseling and encouragement just like those in his congregation or ministry.  Marriage difficulties, stress, conflicts and depression are tools the enemy likes to use to reduce our effectiveness for the Lord.  Barnabas Ministries is dedicated to giving the Pastor or Minister a place where he can receive counseling in a confidential and safe environment.  Don’t live without help any longer.  Give us a call, and we would love to help you be your best for the Lord.

Home: Who We Are


Barnabas Ministries is partnering with the Alabama District Council of the Assemblies of God in several ways.  Dr. Robert Carter has provided counseling for hurting ministers and their families.  He has provided mediation for congregations where differences have arisen.  He has provided restoration counseling for ministers who have been overtaken in a fault.  He has served as a consultant for the district leadership when dealing with problems of conflict resolution.  Several pastors and congregations have utilized his services to minister to hurting people with in their congregation.  He has taught in District initiated conferences, and seminars.  Barnabas Ministries has been an invaluable asset to this district.  We feel that this ministry has been a God-send to this fellowship.  New ways are currently being developed on how to utilize this ministry in ever increasing ways.  I highly  recommend this ministry to you if you are dealing with difficult situations.

Thank you for being such an integral part of our ministry for the past two years.  No less than 8 families have been personally touched by Barnabas Ministries, including my own.  Your Pastor’s heart, the Holy Spirit leading, and just your easy going style makes for such relaxed atmosphere for the healing of the soul.

Dr. Carter has been a wonderful answer for the challenging counseling needs which are presented to me and my staff.  From marital counseling,, to ministering healing to long-term emotional pain to “just being there for hurting people”, Dr. Carter has brought anointed and professional ministry to many whom we’ve referred.  I’m thankful for our partnership with Dr. Robert Carter.
