Mark Barnard: current OSU head volleyball coach and "jack of all trades"
Mark Barnard spent 2005-2015 as an Oregon State assistant volleyball coach and the last four seasons as the head coach. The first topic we touch on is how different the collegiate sports system is in America compared to his home country of Australia, and Mark also shares his thoughts on the sustainability of the college sports model and how the coronavirus will alter it long-term. I also loved hearing about his passion for coaching and his multifaceted interests away from volleyball. A "jack of all trades," you might be as likely to catch Mark reading a book about a Mexican fisherman as you would see him coaching volleyball (and yes, we talk about both those things).

Podcast Ep.65: The Dance of Gifts in the Church (Mark Barnard and Ken Quick)
Before You Quit
In today’s conversation with Rev. Mark Barnard and Dr. Kenneth Quick we are going to talk about dancing in church. Okay, now I know I have your attention. But no, not that kind of dancing. We will be discussing the dance of gifts in the church. Here’s what the conversation will be about: Much has been written on how God speaks to us as individuals, but the bookshelves are bare when it comes to helping leaders know how God speaks to and guides a ministry. The Dance of the Gifts seeks to help fill that gap. It enables your leadership to discern God’s will for your ministry in a thoroughly biblical manner by developing a better understanding of how spiritual gifts work together. Discussion questions are provided at the end of each chapter, making The Dance of the Gifts a helpful resource for training ministry leaders.

Podcast Ep 32: When Your Church is Hurting (Rev. Mark Barnard)
Before You Quit
It’s generally accepted that most people leave churches because of personal conflict, not because of theological differences. We hear too often of churches that are hurting because of conflict and sometimes this pain can last for years. Is it possible God is behind that pain more than we might think? Often, visible conflict in a church is a symptom of something more serious. While we talk a lot in these podcasts about hurting pastors, we have not said much about a church that is hurting. What happens when a church has a history of conflict, or a history of pastors who stay only for several years. I remember when we interviewed Dennis Maynard on the subject of When Sheep Attack, that Dr. Maynaird referred to a church with a hundred year history had more than 50 pastors serving them in that 100 years. It would be safe to say that something is wrong with the heart of that church. Today we are going to talk to an expert on hurting churches, a man who’s given his life to help churches become healthy again. His name is Mark Barnard. Together we want to understand what God is really saying when there is conflict in the church, and what it might take to bring about healing. Mark founded Blessing Point Ministries which works to enhance the fruitfulness of healthier ministries and heal wounded congregations. He authored several books related to church health. His latest title, Screwtape versus The Church, explores the nature of corporate spiritual warfare. Mark is a father, grand father and husband of over 30 years. You can learn more @blessingpoint.org.
