Operation Barnabas is a Lutheran Church Missouri Synod Ministry to the Armed Forces network of care to our nation's military members and their families. We reach out to all branches of the military, with a special emphasis on our Reserve members and their families. 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!
