Memorial Day — Our Speaker for Memorial Day was Tom Harmon. Tom has been travelling and preaching Christ for twenty-five years now. His clear admonitions and his use of memorized Scripture make him a favorite at Barakel. He and Joyce have been married more than 40 years and have four children, all married with families of their own. Learn more at http://www.tdharmon.com/bio.

Children ages 7-11 will have the option of meeting with Chris and Amber Knobloch and their team from Godís Helping Hands ministry.

Labor Day — Our Speaker for Labor Day was Dr. John Barnett. John has been teaching the Word of God for more than 35 years of uninterrupted ministry. Born and raised in Michigan, he and his wife Bonnie have eight children, and now minister at Calvary Bible Church in Kalamazoo, MI. John has also travelled to more than 40 nations to teach the Scriptures. Learn more about John here and here.

Kirby Huseby of Truth Alive Ministries will be speaking to children ages 7-11.

We offer separate classes during each weekendís chapels for children from newborn through age six. Each group will be cared for by our own resident staff and carefully screened volunteers.
