James 1:27 (NIV) says, “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure
and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and
to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.
The mission of Barrow Ministry Village is to expose those in Barrow County to the hope and love Of Jesus Christ by meeting their “felt” needs including, but not limited to, food, counseling, and foster family resources.
In 2011, a group of pastors, community leaders, and concerned citizens in Barrow County began meeting to discuss social problems within the community and the lack of available resources to address these problems. Believing that Jesus is the answer, the result of these discussions lead to the idea of the Barrow Ministry Village, a local Christian Ministry, hoping to bridge the gap in services providing hope and healing to a community of struggling individuals and families. Three key areas came from such discussion: The need for 1. Food Distribution, 2. Foster Parent Resources, and 3. Christian Counseling Services. Receiving 501c3 non-profit status November 29, 2013, Barrow Ministry Village, Inc, (BMV) began providing much needed services to orphans, widows and other vulnerable Barrow County residents. Since that time, the BMV has narrowed its focus to professional Christian Counseling and Foster Family Support. We continue to offer a food pantry for our clients.
