our purpose and our story

Reaching the Unreachable

Breaking The Barrier was officially launched in 2012 as the extension of a nearly 10 year international outreach ministry of Pastor Russ & Amanda Bowen. We proclaim the message of Jesus Christ in practical, relevant and life changing ways. Whether that is through local, regional, and national crusades, the building of orphanages, schools, colleges, churches and feeding programs. We hope to empower and strengthen communities by entering into partnerships with local organization, churches and businesses. Where we assess and assimilate clear plans that build strong families, communities and local economies drawing the hearts and minds of those we meet into a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Why We Exist

  • Crossing racial, denominational and cultural barriers to proclaim the love, message and hope of Jesus Christ to our region and nations….The accomplishment of this mission is  through strategic partnerships that include:
  • Short and long term community development projects that promote growth, independence, and a positioning of the community to become completely self sustaining after a period of investment, training and accountability.
  • Establishment and support of primary and college level educational programs. That include secular and Christian education scholarships.
  • Relief Aid & medical missions support.
  • Indigenous, Local, regional, national evangelistic crusades, festivals, outreaches that share the gospel of Jesus Christ in practical ways.
  • Hiv/Orphan Care  and intervention in Zambia & Uganda.
