The Barnes Project
Artist Bio:
THE BARNES PROJECT "Train up a child in the way that he should go; and when he is old, he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6 That's what Pastor Benjamin A. Barnes, Sr. did more than thirty years ago when he gave his life to Christ and decided to live a life that was pleasing to Him. Barnes, a gifted musician in his own right, under instruction from God denounced his own gift and in turn God promised to "gift" his children. The Barnes Project is proof beyond a shadow of a doubt that a promise made years ago came to pass. Not long after giving his life back to God, Pastor Barnes was called by God to preach His word. In late 1976, Barnes who was living with his family of five children and a wife Bettie Wright Barnes in Newark, New Jersey moved back to his home state of North Carolina. Benjamin A. Barnes, Jr., who was barely a year old at the time, now serves as a minister of music at Tree of Life Full Gospel Church founded by Pastor Benjamin A. Barnes, Sr. in 1982. Since its conception, the Tree of Life has served as a spiritual breeding ground where gifts and talents were nurtured and prophecies were fulfilled not only in Pastor Barnes' children, but also in his grandchildren and no doubt generations to come. The Barnes Project is a meeting of young spiritual minds with a solid foundation provided by Pastor and First Lady Barnes, the nucleus of the family. Their goal is to reach souls and change lives by spreading an "old" message in a new way. The Barnes Project has been blessed with the ability to create new and innovative music, produce as well as write. Vocally, The Barnes Project consists of a new wave of talent stemming from the younger generation of the Barnes Family. The newest vocal addition is Valerie Thoms who is the niece of Pastor Benjamin Barnes. She grew up admiring her cousins singing in the church and secretly harbored her own passion and gift to express herself through song. She was a natural choice rounding out the groups unique blend of organic harmonies. Brandon Allman Barnes is an All-American running back with the voice of a baritone angel. He is also a grandson of Pastor Benjamin A. Barnes, Sr.. Benaiah is the "baby boy" or youngest son and sixth child of Pastor Barnes. He has been singing since the age of two, wrote his first song at the age of nine and presently serves as the group's writer, though others are waiting in the wings. Last, but not least is Bre (Brittany), Pastor Barnes baby girl and seventh child. Like her brothers and sisters before her, she displayed her musical gift at an early age, HARMONIZING un-coached at the age of three. She is an awesome vocal producer and sings lead, as do Benaiah and Brandon. God has truly put his stamp of approval on the Barnes family and blessed The Barnes Project to not only do what they love by singing and playing music, but to be used by God to reach souls and spread His love. The Barnes Project is genuinely concerned by the state of the world, especially its youth, which is the future. They are not moved by worldly wealth or personal gain. They stand firmly upon the foundation laid by their parents and particularly two scriptures: 1) Mark 8:36 "For what does it profit a man if he shall gain the whole world and lose his own soul?" 2) Proverbs 11:30 "The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise." The latter scripture is obviously the origin of the name of Pastor Benjamin A. Barnes' church. The Tree of Life Full Gospel Church as well as The Barnes Project continues to lift up the name of Jesus and live up to the name of the church by winning souls for Christ. They solicit the prayers of saints and likewise to aid them in their mission of shedding God's light in a dark world.
