"God has put dreams in your heart...history-shaping plans

that are as unique as your DNA."


Norman is the founder of Links International, which became a charity in its own right in 1985. Norman is now retired but as previous director of Links International, had traveled to 50 different countries. His original vision for Links was established after he made a visit to Ghana in 1979. Norman preaches and teaches both in the UK and USA where he has also founded and serves on the Board of Directors for Links USA. He continues to help people and churches to find their destiny in God, especially in the area of missions. Norman and Grace also led a church in Essex, UK, for 31 years.

Grace acted as a consultant to Links International prior to her retirement. She has traveled extensively both with Norman and in her own right, leading teams of women to such places as Mexico, India, Burundi, Ghana, and Sri Lanka. 

Norman and Grace currently reside on the southern coast of England.


Destiny Calls is the true story of Norman & Grace Barnes - an ordinary couple from East London who dreamed dreams that changed the lives of individuals, churches, and even nations.

This is a book laced with disappointment, frustration and misunderstanding that all true visionaries must endure. It encourages ordinary people who may have forgotten how to dream and how to believe God, to dust themselves down and dare to dream again.
