About Barclay College

Barclay College welcomes students from all evangelical faith traditions who seek a rigorous academic setting with a solid biblical foundation. Our mission is to prepare students in a Bible-centered environment for effective Christian life, service, and leadership. Our undergraduate programs include Bachelor degrees in Youth Ministry, Pastoral Ministry, Worship Arts, Bible/Theology, Missions, Psychology and Family Studies, Sports and Recreational Leadership, Elementary Education, and Business Administration. Our graduate programs include a Master degree in Transformational Leadership. Barclay College transforms students into effective servants with an increasingly coherent Christian world view that is developed through a vital faith community. Our professors are gifted practitioners and scholars in their field of study, and genuinely care about each student. We believe that these aspects make Barclay College a model of academic excellence. A uniquely transforming encounter with God is inevitable in the vibrant faith community of Haviland. Distractions associated with college life are not as prevalent at Barclay College.

Spiritual growth comes through the collective interplay of classes, chapels, Christian service, deep personal relationships, and the larger community. There is time to seek God at Barclay College in preparation for carrying out the mission of Christ. Jesus said, "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations" (Matthew 28:19). As Bernard of Clairvaux said, "There are those who seek knowledge for the sake of knowledge; that is curiosity. There are those who seek knowledge to be known by others; that is vanity. There are those who seek knowledge in order to serve; that is love." Barclay College exists to equip students to serve God.
