Clark Barnard


Most of the people that we minister to come from very simple educational/vocational backgrounds with low to modest income. Many of them live in rural areas or low-income neighborhoods in various cities. Some even live in very remote Amazonian villages with limited services (i.e., electricity, access to medical care, etc.). Even though they may be “simple” folks by our American standards, we know they are full of potential!

First Mission

The Barnard’s first mission experience was traveling to Juarez, Mexico. They ministered in street evangelism and church ministry. They also toured central Mexico performing mime/dance drama and doing door-to-door evangelism.

Becoming a Missionary

Clark and Beth received their call to missions while they were serving as associate pastors in Erie, Pennsylvania in 1982. Later that year they attended Dallas Theological Seminary and the following year went to the School of Evangelism. Immediately after that the Barnards moved to Aguascaliente, Mexico and say they “never looked back!”
