In Philippians 1, Paul calls Christians to partner with him in his ministry. More than just a partner, an Ambassador is a physical representation, through speech and action, of the organization they represent.

There are various ways you can represent Barnabas Aid in our ministry to the suffering Church. Through the prayers and generosity of our supporters, and with God’s help, Barnabas has been able to transform the lives of Christians suffering for their faith in over 100 different countries.

These projects include the provision of food and basic needs, medical care, Christian schools, disaster relief, leadership training, support for pastors and evangelists, Bibles and Christian literature, small business start-ups for self-sufficiency, and help for converts and victims of violence. We want to help as much as possible – but we can’t do it alone. We need your help!

Become an Ambassador

If you share our passion for serving suffering Christians and have the time and desire to help others understand their plight, then we invite you to apply to become a volunteer Ambassador.

We will provide our Ambassadors with the following:

  • Communication: In addition to our regular material, you will be invited to a monthly Zoom huddle, which highlights key information to pass on to their church.
  • Resources: We will equip you with extra resources about our ministry and the projects we support, such as media (e.g., videos, PowerPoint presentations, etc.), posters and leaflets.
  • Encouragement: We appreciate all Ambassadors regardless of how much time you can afford to give. We want to encourage you to use your gifts in the ministry for the suffering Christians.

Select a description of each function of an Ambassador to learn more about its purpose in the ministry of Barnabas Aid (NOTE – Ambassadors aren’t expected to do all of these functions; only as one is led and has the capacity and ability to perform them):


Prayer is our leading priority at Barnabas Aid. We are so grateful that many supporters already pray for the suffering Church and in this sense are already partnering with us in prayer. However, we are looking for Ambassadors to create a dedicated prayer group or join with an existing group to be a catalyst for this vitally important aspect of the Barnabas Aid ministry. We will provide you with a Prayer Group Starter Pack, and regular prayer updates, as well utilizing social media channels to facilitate online meetings if desired.

Church representation

How Church Partners can help:

  • Distribute “Barnabas Aid” magazine and other printed materials at their own church.
  • Encourage prayer by raising items at church prayer meetings and/or through church services or newsletters.
  • Alert church leaders to special emergency needs.
  • Promote special events such as Suffering Church Sunday and encourage people to support appeals and campaigns.
  • Motivate individuals to sign up to individually receive our magazine and prayer guide.

Regional representation

Ambassadors promote the work of Barnabas Aid across a local area in addition to their ‘home’ church.

Ambassadors may help promote special Barnabas Aid meetings in the area, distribute material to local churches, and look for opportunities for speakers in the area.


We are looking for individuals who have experience in public speaking (and possibly preaching) to give a voice to Christians around the world who cannot speak for themselves.

Speakers are provided with information and materials including media and PowerPoint presentations. Speakers may be approached by Barnabas Aid to speak at a few engagements a year in local churches and Christian groups that fit in with their schedule. Speakers may also initiate their own speaking engagements.
