Camp Barnabas exists to provide life-changing opportunities to people with special needs in a Christian camp setting. We offer acceptance and love to more than 1,300 campers with special needs and chronic diseases - and their siblings - in locations across the United States. Through adaptive activities, people with physical, mental, and/or medical challenges become participants, not observers, in the world around them. They leave Camp Barnabas knowing they are uniquely created to live lives of ability.
The Mission of Hopegivers International is to:
GATHER: Rescue orphaned, abandoned, and at-risk children, restore their broken lives by meeting their spiritual, emotional, educational, and practical needs, and train them to repeat the process of hope by bringing the Gospel to those in their own country who have yet to hear. SHARPEN: Training the future by equipping men and women for ministry through Bible Colleges, Nursing Schools, and Pastoral Understudy programs that prepare called men to be pastors. LAUNCH: Sending Called, Trained, and Approved men with the gospel to those who have yet to hear the name of Jesus, to plant churches that proclaim the gospel, make disciples, serve widows, orphans, and the poorest of the poor, and plant other churches.
