ABOUT the Work

“The Word is My Life” Training Ministry emphasizes the power of God’s Word and its ability to transform lives.  Focusing on Christian education and training, “The Word is My Life” has been on the move since its inception.
The initial work was the self-publishing of 23 encouragement guidebooks for those seeking Biblical answers to life’s challenges.  The most popular guidebook in the series is “Encouragement for Your Future.”  Dr. Iris Barrett continues to develop training materials for public speaking engagements and training seminars.  The most popular seminar topics address leadership development and finding your purpose in life.
The training ministry has expanded by providing one-on-one Biblical encouragement counseling for individuals and groups.  As life concerns and problems are presented, Dr. Barrett encourages by sharing and explaining scriptures that directly address life's problems.  She also prays, targeting the area of need.  Individuals leave with hope derived from the Word of God and prayer and are encouraged to continue the journey toward wholeness by continuing to meditate on and pray the Word.  If you are hurting and discouraged, seek truth from God's word through encouragement counseling and prayer ministry offered through “The Word is My Life” Training Ministry.  
Encouragement ministry sessions for women are held to encourage women grow in their faith, in knowledge of the Word, and in prayer. "Women With a Call" is a ministry of fellowship, encouragement, and instruction for women who pursue the call of Christ on their lives.  This group is led by Dr. Barrett and meets at Christian Community Outreach Ministries (CCOM) in Hickory, NC.  The purpose of the group is to provide community for women in some type of ministry where needs for discipleship, soul care, encouragement, and prayer are met.  Prayer, praise, teaching, ministry, and hope abound in these gatherings.  The topics discussed are found in "From My Life's Journey." Please see the ministry calendar for the next scheduled meeting.   
A new area of ministry being pursued is church auxiliary organization and development.  Dr. Barrett is gifted in the area of administration and has an extensive background in organizational leadership and development.  Using skills in administration, leadership and team development, Biblical instruction from the Word, and prayer, Dr. Iris Barrett is able to train, organize, and mobilize church and ministry auxiliaries to excellence in action.
