JACALYN BARNES, Director of The Repentance Project

Jacalyn is passionate about helping others encounter the transformational love of our Father. For her, entering into the Scriptures is a journey beyond the veil into the depths of God’s heart—a pilgrimage filled with explosive revelation, bottomless pools of grace, and tsunamis of His goodness that inundate us in relentless love. Through the word, worship, and intercession, Jacalyn desires that others would see, hear, and know Him like never before. She is particularly zealous about conveying the Father’s heart to His daughters that we may arise in the fullness of our identity and inheritance as Mariams, Deborahs, Huldahs, Marys, Tabithas, Priscillas, and Junias. As the Director of the Repentance Project, Jacalyn works for reconciliation, justice, and unity in the Body—that we may all be one, even as the Father and the Son are one.


PAT SAKS, Author of Stones of Remembrance & Unveiled Cohort Alumna
