Our Heart & Your Cross-Cultural Opportunity!
Iris Abilene Camp Barkeley is a global nonprofit training center dedicated to individual transformation through the gospel of Jesus Christ, the equipping and sending of sustainable leaders, and the stewardship of the personal, Kingdom, historical and environmental gifts that God has given.
Here at Iris Abilene our heart is to see you restored in your relationships with God and others, equipped with the tools needed to serve, and mobilized into the places God has prepared for you!
A core piece of our mission is to develop sustainable leaders. By becoming a leader in His kingdom, Christ gives you the capacity to ignite in others a passion to serve Him and spread His good news to the nations. We desire to create a culture of love and honor for one another. God has equipped each of us with unique gifts, and our desire for you is to recognize your gifts and use them to bring Him glory.
We yearn for students to learn God’s word, experience His presence and go forth in His power to minister to those in need. Jesus came with a ceaseless love for both the one and the masses. As His children we must do the same.
Stop for the one, but believe for the multitudes.
It is with this motivation that we have established our 10-week school CB3. Our program has been prayerfully developed to give you the tools needed to go out and serve Jesus for the rest of your life.
Specific information about our curriculum can be found below, but we are excited to announce our continued partnership with Catch the Fire, Restoring the Foundations, Kendall LIFE Languages Profile, FEMA Disaster Response, Global Samaritan and Love and Care Ministries.
We are overjoyed about two new opportunities that are unique to CB3. Our historic location has always challenged us in the areas of preservation and caring for God’s creation. This year we are excited to announce the integration of a sustainable agriculture and environmental stewardship component to our curriculum. As a student you will receive hands on training in basic gardening technique, land management principles and take part in projects to preserve and restore Camp Barkeley’s historic and environmental resources.
Never before have we included an international component in one of our schools. We are thrilled to provide you with the opportunity to learn and serve in the United States and Mexico. After completing six weeks of study in Abilene, we will be traveling to Jojutla to partner with Kaleo International, a partner of Iris Global.
While in Mexico you will have the opportunity to learn from the experience of missionaries, get a glimpse into cross-cultural living, and begin to understand the challenges and blessings of long-term ministry. You will have the chance to bring the good news of Jesus to the streets of the community, to people in prison, those living at garbage dumps, and men and women trapped in the sex-trade.
Come be a part of what God is doing in West Texas and Mexico!
BE RESTORED, BE EQUIPPED AND GET MOBILIZED!
