Institute for Christian Resources, Inc.


Can you believe it has been over 11 years since we met Jim and Laurie Barnes? Elizabeth was just a baby when they came to Christian Church of Santa Clara to tell us of their plan to establish a Christian Library in Prague, Czech Republic. The library has grown to a neighborhood resource. In the past we have helped the library with a book drive and funding.

Both Jim and Laurie attended San Jose Christian College and were members of Central Christian Church in San Jose. They have a heart for missions.

Over the years they have been challenged with family emergencies, attacks on the library, a flood at Elizabeth's school, government requirements for their legal status, and much more. The library has become a resource for visitors to Prague as well as residents. They offer a children's story hour, Bible studies, resources for students and pastors, Christian books in Czech and English.
