Jonathan BarberCola Clash Updates

What a week!  With VBS every morning, and the Cola-Clash every night, our team kept very busy.  It was a fruitful week.  Our Cola-Clash started off slow with only 25 attending on the first night.  But by the second evening, we had more than doubled our crowd at 51.  There were 18 who put their faith in Christ over the … Read More

Cola-Clash Week #4 – Downer’s Grove, IL

Jonathan BarberCola Clash Updates

Well, we might have gotten rained on, but let me say that the spiritual downpour of God’s blessing far surpassed the downpour of rain we received on Thursday night.  In fact, the rain ended up being quite a blessing.  On a day that saw 105 degrees and horrible humidity, the rain was a refreshing blessing during our outdoor competitions.  God … Read More

We had a wonderful week just outside Chicago in Palos Hills, IL.  This was the first time that this church has had an event like this, and they took it very seriously.  God blessed us with 97 teenagers over the three nights with a high night of 66 and a total of 25 salvation decisions!  Praise the Lord!

Jonathan BarberCola Clash Updates

Spoke Tackle over a cactus patch, anyone?  No worries, Jeff and Trevor now have plenty of experience digging out those pesky little fella’s!  The field ended up being perfect! We didn’t know what to expect here in Grand Island, Nebraska.  Solid Rock Baptist Church was just planted this year, so there are not many people in the building.  But, they’ve … Read More

Cola Clash Week #1 – Central City, NE

Jonathan BarberCola Clash Updates

This was our second straight summer in Central City, Nebraska.  God gave us beautiful weather all week long.  There was no rain this year, and best of all…no tornadoes!  Last year, our Thursday night event was brought to an abrupt ending right in the middle of the message when tornado sirens went off.  It made for an unforgettable night.  God did … Read More

Cola Clash Week #10 – Central City, NE

Jonathan BarberCola Clash Updates

Upon arriving at Central City Baptist Church, it became evident very quickly that God was on the move in that church and community. Pastor Jenkins took some time with our team to tell us of one answer to prayer after the other. God had done so much for this church in providing for their building needs and spiritual needs, that … Read More

Cola Clash Week #9 – Lander, WY

Jonathan BarberCola Clash Updates

It was so good to be back in Lander, WY. This is the church where the pastor killed a rattlesnake the last time we were here. Well, we didn’t have that kind of excitement this time (although we tried), but we didsee God do other exciting things. On the first night, we saw more souls saved than the entire three … Read More

Cola-Clash Week #8 – Green River, WY

Jonathan BarberCola Clash Updates

The Cola-Clash in Green River went head-to-head with the county fair. This rarely happens, but when it does, it is always a challenge. Pastor York and I scheduled this week long before we knew anything about the fair, so we took it from the Lord, and just trusted Him to break through despite the distraction. Green River Bible Baptist Church … Read More
