About Michael and Elaine Barnes
Michael and Elaine Barnes are ministers of the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. They have been Bible-believing, born again believers for over 20 years.
They are evangelists who love to share their faith in word and song in and out of church buildings. They love to get out on the streets and talk to people one-on-one, being always ready to share the hope that is within them.
Michael is a musician and songwriter who has recorded several CDs and has his own recording studio. He has led worship in many churches and conferences and trained several choirs. Michael and Elaine sing together and love to lead people into God's presence.
They believe that the world today desperately needs the preaching of the Gospel with signs and wonders following; that salvation, healing, deliverance and miracles are normal for people determined to live for Jesus, who allow the Holy Spirit rulership of their whole lives.
After three-and-a-half years of ministering in various parts of NSW and Queensland, the Lord has led them to reside in Cessnock near Newcastle, NSW where they are leading a fellowship and involving themselves in spreading the Gospel in the area.
They are always ready to travel and minister as the Lord leads.
We have always been blessed by Michael Barnes' ability to express his vital faith in Jesus Christ through his music, which we have enjoyed for many years. May Almighty God continue to bless this ministry as he shares his faith in Jesus Christ across our Australian nation.

It is a privilege, an honour and a joy to recommend Mr Michael Barnes to you as a singer, songwriter and evangelist. I have known Michael for approx. seven years in my capacity as Pastor of Coffs Harbour Baptist Church. Michael is a man with a passionate love affair with Jesus Christ, and one who has the boldness, desire and giftedness to share the gospel of Jesus at every opportunity. Michael's gift as a talented singer, guitarist and performer has been submitted to the Lord, enabling him to use his God-given talent for the glory of God and the proclamation of the gospel through song and testimony. The Holy Spirit has released this man to travel extensively, taking the message of the gospel and presenting it in a way that most are receptive to, a gift wrapped in song. I recommend and endorse his credibility and giftedness as a musician, evangelist, and a passionate, mature Christian brother who would bring much blessing to any church or community gathering.

If you are the kind of church that enjoys music and ministry that reaches beyond just the youth, and you appreciate ministry that clearly conveys faith and hope in Christ Jesus, and you enjoy listening to a person who is enthusiastic about souls being saved, then you will enjoy Michael. It is with confidence that I recommend Michael to you, and encourage you to consider what your church will gain should you invite him to visit.

Michael is a man of integrity with a heart for evangelism. Being an anointed singer and musician assists him in his passion to reach the lost and see souls won for Christ. He takes joy in leading others into the throne room of God through praise and worship, and God has used his ability and gifts to bless many people.
I believe the calling of God on Michael's life is very strong. It is a privilege to recommend him to any church in any area of worship, evangelism, teaching and preaching as I have no doubt he would be a great blessing to any congregation.
