On this episode of Group Answers, Brian and Chris talk to Barnabas Piper about his new role in the local church, and the new Bible study, Help My Unbelief. Barnabas worked in Christian publishing for nearly fifteen years before joining the staff at Immanuel Church in Nashville in 2019. He is a writer, the author of multiple books, and has co-hosted several podcasts. He has two amazing daughters, one dog, and zero cats. Really the only major crisis in Barnabas’s life is a life-long loyalty to Minnesota sports teams.
