"To see the lost saved and the Church changed by the power of God!"
Who We Are and What We Do
The heartbeat of Eric Barger (pronounced Bar-jer) is helping the church Take A Stand! on the issues while reaching the world for Christ.
Eric spent nearly 20 years lost in the world as a secular musician, engineer and record producer. Following the lifestyle and mystic philosophy of the New Age Movement, while being addicted to drugs for over 14 years, his life nearly ended. Then, at the darkest moment, Jesus Christ brought him deliverance, peace and purpose! Now Eric confronts our society with a life-changing, biblically based message of challenge and hope.
The author of numerous books such as Disarming the Powers of Darkness, Entertaining Spirits Unaware: The End-Time Occult Invasion, The Rock Music Rating System and the bestseller, From Rock To Rock, Eric has also written for USA Today, The Christian Worldview Network, The Christian World Report and has been interviewed by hundreds of print and electronic media outlets, including Foxnews.com and Time magazine. He has been a featured guest on many Christian and secular programs such as:
"Truths That Transform" with Dr. D. James Kennedy
"Point of View" with Marlin Maddoux
"Southwest Radio Church"
"Understanding the Times" with Jan Markell
"Worldview Matters" with Brannon Howse
"Christ in Prophecy" with Dr. David Reagan
"Unraveling the New World Order with Dr. Larry Bates
"100 Huntley Street" with David Mainse
"A Call to Action" with Jay Sekulow (TBN)
"It's a New Day" with Willard and Betty Thiesen
The late Dr. D. James Kennedy told his audience, "Everyone needs to read Eric Barger's insights." Radio host and author, the late Marlin Maddoux called Eric, "One of the utmost authorities on the Cults, the New Age and Rock Music today."
After founding the ministry in 1983, Eric Barger began to develop the primary focus of the ministry which has become TAKE A STAND! Seminars. Traveling 200+ days each year, Eric has presented these seminars in churches (affiliated with more than 70 different evangelical denominations and groups) as well as in conferences and Christian schools across America and Canada.
TAKE A STAND! Seminars have consistently proven to be one of the most effective tools for evangelism, as well as for educating, informing and challenging the church today.
Presented in a uniquely personal, yet "no compromise" manner, Eric's multi-media messages are Biblically based, inter-denominational in doctrine and evangelically centered. The thoroughly documented material presented is designed to impact both Christians and those outside the church body. Whether through single church seminars or multi-church conferences, a lasting impact has been felt where these meetings have been presented.
