Barn Around the World - Quail Ministries

You know that the Barn supports missionaries and ministries in many countries

and on many continents around the globe. But we also support local people who

are working for the Lord in our own neighborhoods. Maybe you have heard of


Founded in 1985 Quail Ministries is the “spiritual and organizational awning”over

the work of writer/performer Michael Kelly Blanchard. Over the years Michael has

performed hundreds of concerts, written dramas, and appeared on television and

radio. He also has lead The Stories Workshops and partnered with the US Army's

Strong Bonds programs. Quail seeks to be a “tool in the belt of the Divine

Carpenter.” Recently, in partnership with painter Steve Hawley, Quail Ministries

has produced a lenten devotional book entitled “Waiting at the Station” which

combines 14 original paintings with 14 MKB compositions in a contemporary

exposition of the Stations of the Cross. A DVD version of the music and paintings

(musically arranged and visually edited by Jon Couch of Tucson Arizona) will be

available for Lent 2018.

Michael, with his wife Greta and family, have long and strong ties to the Barn. We

support them financially and prayerfully through the Missions Committee.

Prayer Points:

Pray that in the coming year, opportunities would increase for Quail as a heart

piercing “arrowhead” of art(through story and song) both in churches and civic

setting. May they truly be a "polished arrow in the quiver of the Lord", Isaiah 49:2.
