Jim and Carla Barbarossa are Apostolic Equipping Evangelists and are the founders of Step By Step Ministries. God has called Jim and Carla to reach the 9 out of 10 Christians that never witness and teach them how to, while at the same time releasing and raising up the gift of the Ephesians Chapter 4 Equipping Evangelist in the Local Church.

These evangelism outreach tools and training materials are now being used in over 108 nations of the world resulting in the establishment of evangelism outreaches in many countries, over 50 new churches being planted and over 500,000 souls coming to Jesus in last 7 years.    Free Evangelism Package

In 1996, God called, appointed, and anointed Jim Barbarossa to teach on and blow the Shofar from a Biblical Christian perspective. Since then, Jim has been asked to blow the Shofar to start conferences all over the world. As Jim sounds the ancient Hebrew instrument of repentance, praise, worship, and warfare, itís as if we enter into the Holy of Holies, and the awesome presence of God is experienced as healings, miracles, signs, wonders, deliverances, and salvations follow.

Jim , has been a Father and Mentor helping to raise up thousands of Shofar Sounders all over the world, that God has Called and Anointed to be a part of Gideon's Army and Shofars Around The World.

As Carla Barbarossa worships the Lord in dance, the awesome holy presence of God is ushered in, and tears stream down the faces of many as they experience the bondage breaking yoke destroying, Shalom (peace) of God.

Jim is an entrepreneur-businessman, and author who has been blessed with a powerful testimony and loves to teach by example. Carla is a true worshiper and has the gift and anointing to bring people into the Fathers presence through worship and dance. Jim and Carlaís desire is to help you find Godís will for your life while at the same time perfecting you to do the work of the ministry.

Jim's testimony was in the Aug 1997 F.G.B.M.F.I. (Full Gospel Businessmenís Fellowship International) Voice Magazine, of which he is a member.

On Jan 1, 2012 Jim and Carla Barbarossa, Cast the Vision for Church Beyond The Box Apostolic Training and Sending Stations.
