The Barn Church has Moved!

The Barn Church has Moved!


Berrien Springs, MI: The Barn Church and Ministries announced that they have moved to a new facility. This news comes in the wake of a recent shake up when their original facility, a privately owned barn on Linco Road, was closed due to township ordinances.


  “What would have ended many new churches, brought ours together in new ways,” says Shane McLean, lead pastor at The Barn. “People took days off of work to help move and make the new place ready. People made lunch, brought dinner, their kids helped, everyone pitched in! It was an incredible physical display of unity and family, which is the heart of our mission.”


This milestone is significant for The Barn whose mission is to help people know God as Father, bring Family back to the Church, and blur the lines  of denomination.


Blurring the lines of denomination has been a missional mandate of The Barn Ministries since its inception.  This recent move has now relocated their ministry family to the oldest church in Berrien Springs, the United Methodist 

Church on Mars St., which dates back to 1845.   Additionally, a Seventh Day 

Adventist church also utilizes this space for its Saturday morning services.  

A beautiful friendship is building across these denominations.


The Barn Ministries launched a training center in November of 2019 with its first class covering the topic of “Identity”.  More classes spanning a variety of topics are planned for Fall 2020 and all are welcome to attend.


The Barn also offers fun and quickly-growing ministries for both children and teens.  Lead Pastor Shane Mclean: “We have a thriving kids ministry and are actively training the next generation of spirit-lead leaders.”  The Barn’s Leader-in-Training program for kids and youth gives children of all ages an important role to play within the church family.


“Our Friday services are a time of celebration to honor what the Lord has

done- and is still doing- in our region and within our personal lives. Our Sunday service is traditional only in that it’s held on a Sunday. After our first two weekend services in our new space we can definitively say that life is here and the Spirit of God is strong”, says Shane McLean.


“Just because we are different doesn’t mean we can’t love each other. 

We are different. We are The Barn”, Kara McLean.
