Rev. Barney Kinard is a full-time Itinerant Children's Evangelist.He is also the President and Executive Director of Creative Children's Ministries (formerly Share-Time Int'l) located in Buena Park, CA. Creative Children's Ministry is a non-profit evangelistic organization 501 (c) (3), whose ministry goal is to Help Churches and Leaders Evangelize Children Using Creative Ways.
Barney was born in New London, CN in 1943.His father was a career Naval Officer and veteran of World War II and the Korean War.Barney is the oldest of five children and spent a good deal of his childhood and youth moving around the country following his father's career.One of these moves changed his life.
Barney's conversion story occurred when he was a boy of nine in a neighbor's home in Encinitas, CA.
Barney responded at the age of nine (1952) to the invitation following the story called "Barney's Barrel."Kay introduced Barney to the Savior, a Bible, a Church and a Sunday school teacher.
It was during this time that Barney read The Boy From Northfield, a book on the life of D. L. Moody.
That was the first time Barney wanted to be an evangelist like D. L. Moody.By his senior year in High School, Barney experienced a definite call from God to "preach the Word."
While speaking at Forest Home Conference Center to two children's camps, the Lord specifically called Barney to children's evangelism.With this new calling came the need for more study, so he attended Fuller Theological Seminary, where he received his M.A. in Youth Ministries, with a research emphasis in Children's Evangelism in 1972.
Rev. Kinard now brings a wealth of background of 37 years in ministry, including ten years of pastoral staff experiences in five churches working with children, youth, and families.Barney was ordained with the American Baptist Denomination in 1972.He served in two American Baptist Churches and two Baptist General Conference Churches.He also served a Congregational Church in Pacific Grove, CA.Currently, Barney is a member of Whittier Area Community Church in Whittier, CA.
Barney has maintained an interdenominational ministry for twenty-six years as an Itinerant Evangelist with CCM.Barney is widely recognized as an "Incorporation Evangelist," with the distinct ability to reach new children and parents for Christ and the Church through his crusades and rallies.
Throughout the United States, Rev. Kinard has become known for his unique visual methods that creatively illustrate the Bible for children of all ages.Barney is a popular Puppeteer, Ventriloquist, Gospel Magician, and a Master of Object Lessons.Although Barney favors the use of performing arts in his ministry, he also adds effective visuals, both projected and non-projected, in his theme programs that successfully reach and teach children (i.e. overheads, slides, large black light felts).This last year Barney has written, designed and produced three new puppet productions.
In addition to evangelism of children, Barney has extensive experience training lay and professional children's ministers in workshops, seminars and classes.He has maintained an active schedule during the last twenty-six years with numerous Sunday School Conventions and frequently conducts regional workshops.He has been actively involved with the National Children's Pastors' Conventions for thirteen years.His ministry sponsors the unique training conference called Music, Magic & Storytelling, which showcases the creative aspects of CCM.
For ten years Barney served on the Board of the Greater Los Angeles Sunday school Convention-now called Christian Ministries Training Association (CMTA).He also served twelve years on the National Board of Children's Christian Ministries Associates (CCMA) as the Vice President of Networking.In his travels he has been instrumental in starting several regional networks, which encourages Children's Pastor's to gather for monthly fellowship.He has been actively involved with the Fellowship of Christian Magicians for over twenty years and helped start the Orange County Chapter.
Helping churches to release their untapped growth potential is an important aspect of the CCM ministry.For the last eighteen years Rev. Kinard has been doing Church-growth consulting with training received from the Charles E. Fuller Institute of Evangelism and Church Growth.He has maintained an active, but selective involvement in consulting with churches.He has also developed programs to prepare churches to incorporate those who respond to his Family Crusades and evangelistic work with children.Several churches have retained Barney's services to sharpen the focus of their ministry to children and young families.Children's Christian Ministries Association presented Barney the Mover and Shaker Award for challenging others to a deeper commitment in children's ministries in l988.In January of 1992, the International Network of Children's Ministries presented Barney their National Award of Excellence in Children's Ministry at their Denver Children's Pastors' Conference.
Barney served on the National Board of Directors of Children's Ministries of America for the last five years.They launched a national evangelical awareness campaign, called "Celebrate the Child," which called Christian leadership to make evangelism and discipleship ministries with children a priority in 1998-2000.
