Barbara A. Brooks, Author of Faith Builders, is a native of Wilmington, Delaware where she currently resides. She is the founder and pastor of Love is A Ministry; a non-denominational ministry which is also located in Wilmington. Pastor Barbara received the vision for Love is A Ministry (LIAM) back in November 2001, while she was actively serving as an Associate Minister at the Community Outreach Church (COC) of New Castle, DE. Although Pastor Barbara continued to serve COC in the same capacity; her vision was birthed in February of 2002. LIAM was the first to branch out of Community where Bishop Donny E. Skinner, Sr. is Pastor. LIAM began holding Bible Studies at the Quaker Hill High Rise, a facility also in Wilmington; and three years later after having been ordained a pastor, she began holding weekly services, which is currently ministering at the same facility. Pastor Barbara's heart is full of compassion for lost souls and backsliders. She enjoys preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ; and has answered the call to teach and preach on many occasions, locally and afar. The word of God in Galatians chapter 5 verse 6b expresses that faith works by love; and Pastor Barbara expressing the same in her book encourages and reminds others to know that faith will be tried Believe that Christ is the author and finisher of our faith; and know that without faith it is impossible to please God: for he that comes to God must believe that he is, and that he is a re warder of them that diligently seek him. She encourages to know this as well; that test, trials, tribulations and experiences (through Christ) are faith builders.
