While a senior pastor, God used Bill Barber to birth an exemplary child development center and homework helper outreach; he helps other churches do the same.
Bill believes that God is a businessman and He has commanded him to "get down in the trenches" alongside those in need. The Holy Spirit reveals to Bill the areas of ministries that need strengthening and how to accomplish it. Vision Development International has been called of God to help strengthen ministries for the end time harvest.
Bill and Cathy Barber have over forty plus years of ministry to families, including directing Residential Treatment Centers. Many organizations and individuals have drawn upon this vast experience; see the testimonial section. For Bill, it is
"God using him to serve those in need".
