Born November 1, 1960. Born again November 28, 1978. Married November 29, 1981 to Malesia Denise Owens. First daughter, Erica Tramaine Barber-Franklin. Second daughter Tiffany La`Sha Barber and our only son Xavier Earl Barber. One grandson, Jaylin Smith. Licensed to preach the Gospel 1981, what a journey this has been. I really do love the Lord, my Family and his people.
Before we became Christians and children of God, we had different forms of beliefs, traditions, customs and ways of life that were handed down to us by our ancestors just the same the gospel of Christ was handed down through the apostles and preserved through the preaching of the word of faith.
Having received the great commission after salvation to share our faith with the world, we have a responsibility to exploit every means possible to reach the ends of the earth with the gospel of Christ, yet we have one barrier which is the different cultures of the world. This barrier must be taken down if we intend to successfully accomplish the great commission.
If you carefully study the missionary journey of Paul the Apostle, you will understand that he through the wisdom of God was able to blend with almost all cultures so that he could get an audience to listen to his message (1Corinthians 9:22). You may not be able to travel far and wide or go on missionary journeys for your voice to be heard; but that is where the vision of Through People helps you.
Through People Distribution helps bridge cultural barriers through our distribution strategy of each one reaching the gospel networking. Through People Distribution gives you a unique opportunity to distribute your gospel movies, books, and musicals which will not only be profitable to you, but will share your faith across cultures thereby glorifying God and bringing several millions to salvation.
Because we believe in gospel networking, connecting our faith to different cultures is easy. Each time someone gets converted to Christ, another door of ministry is opened in his or her culture, making it easy for us to share the gospel to everyone in that culture, thereby expanding the kingdom of God and our distribution network.
“Showdown in San Diego” is a soon-to-be-released book that chronicles the story of a San Diego pastor who was cited by the county for holding home Bible studies. Based on true events, the book highlights a growing trend in America. In today’s heightened religious climate, the right to religious assembly and freedom of speech is coming under fire from school districts taking out prayer and other such events.
“Showdown in San Diego” will launch in July 2015, but the first chapter is currently available online, for free. Go on the website and get your free chapter now: http://
Christians around the world have been persecuted over millenia for their beliefs, and the trend continues to grow. In America, where religious beliefs are protected by the Constitution, Christians are being singled out with other laws. For instance, the owners of a Christian bakery in Oregon were fined $135,000 for discrimination after refusing to bake a cake for a gay wedding. Other Christian businesses are being forced by the government to provide contraception that includes birth control and abortion-inducing medications. On an individual level, people are also being singled out through loopholes in the law books.
“Showdown in San Diego” is based on a 2009 incident in which Pastor David Jones and his wife received a written warning from the county that ordered them to stop the religious gathering they’d been holding in their home or apply for a major use permit. The couple was told by a code enforcement officer that they couldn’t invite people to their home for a Bible study without the permit, a designation that the County of San Diego charges tens of thousands of dollars for. Pastor Jones decided to write a book to tell the world, in particular Americans, what had happened and why he thinks it will happen again, and as demonstrated by recent event, he was right.
“This event was a serious case of denial of our right for religious assembly and freedom of speech. It was a clear invasion, an intrusion, into our private home life,” said Pastor David Jones, who is the founder and Senior Pastor at SBCC, where he has led the church since its establishment in 1980. “The problem is that our story is frightfully true and that most Americans were deceived into thinking that it was only a parking-related issue. Because of the seriousness of this, we have written this book to take readers on a journey with us through some of the falsehoods and reveal the truth.”
Dean Broyles, Esq., Founder and Chief Counsel of the National Center for Law & Policy, and attorney for David and Mary Jones, believes ‘the government’s interrogation of Mary Jones and legal threats against their small home Bible study is a powerful example of how we are rapidly moving from soft persecution of Christians towards hard persecution in America’.
Flooded with public complaints and accusations, the County of San Diego eventually allowed the Bible studies to continue and sent a formal apology to the Jones family.
The Jones family, however, is convinced that further persecution will continue, a belief that has been recently demonstrated by Christian businesses and individuals being persecuted by way of law books.
THROUGH PEOPLE Publishing and Distribution, an affiliates-based distribution company that puts artists and customers at the core of their approach, is releasing the book. THROUGH PEOPLE is proud to deliver this story to the public, a novel that aligns with the company’s mission to bring to people the books, music, movies, and art that inspire them. THROUGH PEOPLE looks forward to sharing the story of what happened in San Diego and challenging the public to take a further look at what happens today in America, to contemplate the consequences.
Relationship marketing has been defined as a stratagem aimed at promoting customer loyalty interaction and long-term commitment. It is designed to develop strong connections with customers by providing them with information directly suited to their needs and interests and by promoting open communication.
In relation to our faith as Christians, relationship marketing has to do with our soul-winning and soul retain-ship strategies, our relationship with other Christians in the church, new converts, potential Christians and our society at large.
Why Relationship Marketing?
To form a strong bond amongst ourselves as Christians and the world around us, we need to continually seek for ways to contribute to the good of ourselves through the teaching of God’s word, helping one another, providing for one another, taking deliberate steps and actions to improve the lives of others.
The world is evolving very fast because of the continuous increase in our daily activities, insecurity, increased immorality and other social vices; it is becoming more difficult to have real friends and as the Bible puts it, True disciples. The resultant effect of this decrease in true discipleship is that there will come a time where there will be need for people to speak up for a particular idea or belief like our faith, and there will be only a handful of people whose voices may be insignificant.
Through People is driven by a vision of connecting people with God and with one another thereby promoting the spirit of discipleship and expanding the kingdom of God. Connecting people with God and one another can only be done with ease when we provide information directly suited to the needs and interests benefit for a hurting world. Remember that the world is hurting and we have the gospel of Jesus Christ to liberate mankind hence we must be involved in networking the world for Jesus. A good network of Christians with a common purpose and believe will result in the same effect as described in Acts 2:42-47.

My journey as the First Lady of St. Stephens Church has not always been easy. Being faced with many of my own challenges and real life issues developed into a need to share with other First Lady’s in the hopes that I could help them understand that they are not alone.
It was impressed upon me in early 2012 to write this book. Not only to help First Ladies, but to help hurting wives, mothers, and other women in our communities; knowing first hand their plates are often full and running over and they are sometimes focused on inconceivable ways out of their pain, hurt and struggle.
I know this book would not have come to fruition if I had not been chosen by God to become a First Lady. In writing this book, I reflected on my First Lady experiences and a host of other experiences derived from practicing law over 30 years dealing with the day to day people issues.
I pray this book helps ladies across this country. The journey of a First Lady is a challenging yet a rewarding journey. When we are no longer the First Lady and are no longer in the lime light or have the prestige or designated seat; when the entourage is gone and the church lights are dimmed, we as women of God will be still standing.
Barbara J. Warren McKinney, affectionately called BJ is the First Lady of St. Stephens Cathedral Church of God In Christ, the wife of Bishop George Dallas McKinney. She presently serves as the President of the Department of Women of her church.
