UNFAILING LOVE TEAMS & MINISTRIES

EPHESIANS 4:16

Faith In Action Plan

Unfailing Love Christian Church is built on a foundation based on bible scripture found in James 2:17-18, It is the same with faith. I do good works.” Show me your faith that doesn’t do good works. And I will show you my faith by what I do.” We believe that it is imperative for our faith to be proactive. Each action item that our church will pursue will be born out of the Cycle of Purpose Ministry, Evangelism, Worship, Fellowship, Equipping. Our Ministry (service) will meet the needs of urban communities by establishing food pantries and soup kitchens, shelters for the homeless and safe-high quality low income to moderate income housing. Through Evangelism we will encourage, persuade, and compel men, women, boys and girls to receive the love, hope, peace, and joy that is found in our Lord Savior Jesus Christ. In Worship, we will create an atmosphere where people can come and experience the presence of Lord, through the ministry of music and the preached word of God. Through Fellowship, we will create a community that will find strength in numbers by gathering together for ministry, changing our inner-city communities and encouraging the preservation of the traditional family. Fellowship and community will be fortified through activities such as job fairs, tutoring, and neighborhood watch. Finally we commit to the Equipping of the community through the teaching of the Word of God. Further equipping will be done through other programs as needed such as G.E.D. classes, computer literacy training, and job skills classes.

Meet Pastor Jason & First Lady Janese Barney

Pastor Jason A. Barney, raised in St. Louis, Missouri, received his call to ministry in 2001. Since then, he has worked in the ministry as a Youth and Adult Bible Study Teacher for the campus ministry at Southeast Missouri State University and New Emmanuel Missionary Baptist Church. While at New Emmanuel M.B.C., he held the position as Minister of Music for 11 years. Pastor J. Barney has also served as chaplain for St. Luke’s Rehabilitation Hospital and it was here that he carried out his tremendous passion for God’s word and love for God’s people. With a vision from God and a desire to serve the people, a new church was planted, Unfailing Love Christian Church. On February 6, 2011 Unfailing Love Christian Church launched its first official service.

Pastor Barney obtained his Bachelors of Science degree in Industrial Technology from Southeast Missouri State University in 2003. Continuing his education, in 2006 he earned a Master of Arts in Theological Studies from Covenant Theological Seminary. He is currently taking classes towards his Doctorate at Covenant Theological Seminary.

Pastor Barney has shared marital bliss to his wife Janese of almost 15 years and is a proud father of three beautiful children, Robert, Kyla, and Alana.  In his spare time he loves to listen and play all different styles of music.

With a love of music and the Word, a line from one of his favorite songs simply states, “Falling in Love with Jesus, is the best thing I’ve ever done.” His chosen Scripture to live by comes from 1 Corinthians 13 1-3 which states,

“Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.  And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.  And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.”

Pastor Barney gives God the Glory for his life, gifts and talent.  In having a close personal relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, his heart’s desire is to share the love that he has found with all.

Thank you for your patience. My bio is coming soon.

Raising a Generation of Youth to become Christ-centered leaders in the church and the Community.

Unfailing Love Christian Church AlieNation is our Youth Ministry. This ministry consist of our youth from Grades 6 through Grade 12. AlieNation teaches our young people how to be Christian living in this difficult world with many temptation and obstacles all around them. Each Sunday the youth are given the opportunity to break away from the normal flow of regular service and have their own fellowship/service. In teen church the youth are exposed to lessons that connect with them on their level and then they get a chance to fellowship with each other. Also once a month they are given the opportunity to lead service. On Youth Sundays they get to worship God in their way, through music, dance and other expressions. For more information contact Min, Kevin Webb II and Min. Britt Bruton.
