Ministry Results

Barry Wood Ministries has experienced significant growth since 2011. As we have increased our African staff from 23 paid staff to 27 and added 75 Timothys to assist them, the outreach to the unreached has exploded. Each week our men are in the villages sharing the message of Jesus Christ. Their ministry includes evangelistic films, HIV/AIDS education in schools, church planting, discipleship and leadership training. Using state-of-the-art equipment, they are able to go where others cannot go and show many evangelistic films. Below is an ongoing update of ministry results from 2011-2016.
