Barnabas' Place Counseling Center

Hope for Missionaries and Pastors.


About Barnabas' place

Barnabas’ Place is a short-term residential counseling center for pastors, missionaries, and related clergy. We are dedicated to the spiritual and physical wellness of those in the ministry both at home and abroad.

Since professional clergy and their related vocations have a distinct set of emotional, psychological, and spiritual needs, Barnabas’ Place was founded to focus on those wants and needs in a safe, whole, environment that enhances healing and well-being. We hope to facilitate restoration, refocusing, and renewal of those suffering from burn out, depression, broken relationships, loneliness, and a feeling of loss.

We feel that with just a little help from those that have been there and from those that have had like-minded experiences, coupled with a God who cares and understands, that hurting hearts and wounded lives can be made whole. We will listen. We will pray. We will learn, and, together we will be made complete in Christ.

Meet The Tilleys

We met at Northwestern University years ago and were married in 1975. We both felt a missionary call on our lives and wanted to gain the education and experience to implement that call. We feel blessed that God has allowed us to enter into people’s lives and serve as a help in their physical, mental, and spiritual wholeness.
