About Iris Abilene

Iris Abilene Camp Barkeley is a training center located on 1,000 acres of the historic World War II Camp Barkeley United States Army training base.

Our unique surroundings consistently remind us of God’s faithfulness and challenge us to preserve the resources He has entrusted to us, as we become a part of His story. As Christians, we value Israel and support its people. The soldiers who trained here aided in the liberation of Jewish people in WWII. Knowing the past, we are overjoyed God has preserved this place and has now transformed Camp Barkeley to train soldiers of a different kind.
