Carney, Barry and Charlie - Paraguay

Barry and Charlie Carney most recently served in Hot Springs, Arkansas at First Church of the Nazarene where Barry was the administrative and youth pastor. The Carneys served as global missionaries for 7 years; serving the Church of the Nazarene in El Paso as the Work and Witness Coordinators for USA/Canada with an emphasis on the border of Mexico and as the Work and Witness coordinators for the Church of the Nazarene in Argentina from 2001 - 2006.

Barry and Charlie both attended Mid America Nazarene.  They have 3 children: Andrew (18), who just graduated and will be attending MNU, Alex (15) and Alyssa (13).  Prior to their first assignment as missionaries Barry was involved in the construction industry and Charlie stayed at home with the kids.  They attended Kansas City First Church of the Nazarene where they were involved in ministry, especially children’s ministries.  Barry has been furthering his education; working on his master’s in divinity and earlier this summer, he completed his ordination requirements and was ordained.

They have had a passion for missions for many years and have a deep desire to serve God and to share His love wherever He may lead them.  They are very excited that the Lord has called them back to the foreign mission field in Paraguay and Bolivia where they will be working with church development, work and witness and the Jesus Film.
