Timothy + Barnabas Institute

Timothy+Barnabas Institute is a new coaching resource for pastors. Join cohorts of other ministers to be mentored by more-experienced pastors as you navigate life in ministry.

The two-year training includes:

  • Four in-person conferences at NAMB headquarters in Alpharetta
  • Monthly conference calls with your coach
  • Books, articles and resources to work through in between meetings

There are two tracks—one for pastors 45 and under and one for those over 45.

A deposit of $500 covers all sessions and lodging. Deposits will be refunded to all participants who have perfect attendance and complete the Institute, and scholarships are available.

  • September 1-3, 2020
  • January 19-21, 2021

At each conference, keynote speakers will set up topics, and then the pastors will break off with their coaches to apply them to their context.

  • The pastor’s personal relationship with Jesus
