Oklahoma All-State recipient Cole Hibler from 6A Ponca City High School has signed his letter of intent to attend and play basketball at Barclay College in the Fall of 2013.

Hibler is a 5’10” point guard who averaged 10.2 points a game while shooting 36 percent from three and 44 percent from the field as a senior. He also dished out 4.1 assists per game on a team that finished the year 12-11.

For his accomplishments over this last season, Hibler was named to the Oklahoma Basketball Coaches Association All-Region Team and selected to their All-Star Team, and was recognized in the Oklahoman, Tulsa World Daily, and VYPE magazine as a 6A All-State player. In addition, he has been an All-Centennial Conference player over the past three seasons.

Head Coach Royce Bryan commented, “We are thrilled that Cole decided to come to BC in the fall. I think what makes him special is his ability to impact the game in so many different ways. He can score when needed, but doesn’t have to score in order to make his presence felt. He just has a great understanding of the game and is a tough competitor.”

Hibler is the son of Alan and Shiela Hibler. He is planning on majoring in Business Administration.


Mercedeez Bell, from Woodward High School (Woodward, OK), is the second new commit to the Lady Bears for the Fall 2013 Semester. Bell played for Coach Pat Hawkins and the Lady Boomers over the past four years. She is a 5’11 forward who averaged 10.5 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals, and 1 block a game while being named to multiple all-tournament teams as well as being recognized as an All-Region player.


“She has great instincts for moving around the court and she is a very good athlete for her size. Mercedeez can score on the block and she can step out and make you guard her on the perimeter. Defensively, she has great instincts and she is very long which will work well for what we try and do,” commented Head Coach Brad Lingafelter. “Plus, she is a great girl with a very sweet personality.”


Bell was a Principal’s Honor Roll recipient and was a member of the Pep Club, Sub Debs, and Team Justin. She is the daughter of Michael and Jennifer Bell.


“I am ecstatic to have Mercedeez join the Lady Bears. She was very meticulous about what she wanted and took her time to make sure that Barclay was a good fit for her. Her parents were a great source of wisdom for her as she navigated the recruiting process,” said Lingafelter.

Caleb Signing

Caleb Davis, a three-sport athlete from 2A Kiowa County High School in Greensburg, KS, decided to stay close to home and start his collegiate career at Barclay College following his graduation from KCHS in May.

After Davis signed his letter of intent to play men’s basketball in the Fall semester, he stated, “I am just pretty excited for the college experience here at Barclay.”

Davis is a 5’10” shooting guard who averaged 12.2 points, 3 steals, 3 rebounds, and 2 assists during his high school career. This last season he helped pace the Mavericks to a 12-9 record while being named to the Keady Classic All-Tournament Team, 1st team All-League, and Wichita Eagle Class 2A Honorable Mention.

BC Head Coach Royce Bryan said, “Even though there is a strong possibility we might only have Caleb for a year or two because of his chosen major, he is well worth it. Anytime you can get a young man of his character to come be a part of your program, it is a no-brainer. He will make us better both on and off the court.”

Davis plans to major in Aviation. He is the oldest son of Steve and Marlieta Davis, both Barclay College alum. Steve played for the Bears from 1984-88 and is second on the all-time scoring list with 1840 points.

BC Athletics

Following the 2011 inaugural cross country season at Barclay College, it was thought to be in the best interest of the college and the cross country program to utilize the 2012-13 academic school year to focus on recruiting in order to build a solid foundation for the program. To lead the way, Wendy Williams has agreed to take the reins from Ryan Kendall and continue to grow the program.

Williams said, “First, I want to say thank you to Ryan (Kendall) for his work and effort starting the program. We only hope to build on the foundation he set.”

Williams is originally from Rock Springs, Wyoming and ran cross country at NCAA Division II Black Hills State University in Spearfish, S.D. While there she was a 7 time All-American. By the time she was a senior in 2010 at Black Hills State she had left her mark on the school and the cross country program. In that year alone she was a Cross Country All-American, 5k Outdoor All-American, 10k Outdoor All-American, and the National Outdoor Marathon Winner, which she won in 2009 as well.

Academically, Williams graduated in 2010 with a degree in special education and a minor in exercise science and coaching.

“My philosophy will center on taking them (cross country team) through Romans 5:3. I hope they would be able to find joy in their sufferings and develop perseverance not only in their running but more importantly in their walk(s) with the Lord,” said Williams.

Williams is married to Barclay College graduate Jeremiah Williams and they have an 8 month old daughter, Abigail. They are the current Men’s Resident Directors.

Conference Schedule

Register for the Conference Online


A Church Multiplication Conference for previous and potential church planters, church and denominational leaders, students, and anyone else who has a heart for church planting and fulfilling the Great Commission through the Friends Church. The conference will feature inspirational messages, “best practice” workshops with speakers who have “done it” from around the country, and time for fellowship, synergistic networking, sharing, and dreaming. Recognizing that it takes all kinds of churches to reach all kinds of people, a number of different methods and approaches will be discussed. This conference will be informative, stirring, and help us refocus on God’s call.


This will be the first church multiplication gathering of its kind to attract evangelically-minded Friends from around the country who share a desire to build the Kingdom and who want to be faithful to do our part as Friends to fulfill the Great Commission. In the face of many challenges faced by Friends in every region, this may be exactly the right time to have a forward-looking emphasis that reminds us of our calling with a “gates of hell shall not prevail against it” passion. There are exciting flickers of this fire around the country and globe among Friends, but it is time to bring these sparks together. With God’s help, we need to prayerfully consider how we might shed a maintenance-mentality and stir up a strategic church multiplication movement.

Our Main Speaker:

Bruce Redmond is the Director of Church Planting for the Evangelical Free Church of America, Southeast District. He has directed EFCA church planting for 14 years, serving previously in the Rocky Mountain district. Bruce is convinced that church planting is one of the most effective ways to evangelize and make disciples. He desires to see tens of thousands of people come to Christ in such a way that a movement of new churches would sweep our country. Rather than a “one-size fits all” approach, Bruce has identified at least 12-14 models for starting new churches and believes that through the creativity of God and His people, the possibilities are unlimited. His principles and strategies have been used in at least four countries and in 15 states.

Bruce puts it this way: “We believe the Spirit of God is raising up workers from the harvest field to begin new churches. We are experiencing all different kinds of strategies, different kinds of people, different kinds of visions and in all sizes of communities. The one single concern we have is the spread of the gospel through making disciples that make disciples and reproducing healthy disciple making churches…The mission of the church is clear and starting new churches is still one of the best methods to establish a healthy DNA of multiplication personally and corporately.”

Want to Come Early or Stay Late?

We know that some need to arrive early due to flight arrangements. We will offer some “Pre-Conference Prayer Meetings” and fellowship time on Wednesday afternoon, May 8 for anyone who would like to participate. In addition, one regional group has requested to be able to stay after the conference for a time of debriefing/fellowship with their own pastors and leaders. Post-conference Gatherings like this are possible by prior arrangement. (See costs below.)


This initial conference will be held on the campus of Barclay College in Haviland, Kansas.


Many people will find this conference stirring and relevant, including: those who are interested in church planting, have started a new church, plan to start a new church, or would like to find out more about the possibility of starting a new church. Pastors of potential mother churches, those with an apostolic vision to start a number of churches, or those who see themselves in a supportive role to start new churches will each have their minds and hearts stretched and encouraged!

What about students?

Undergraduate credit is available through Barclay College. A number of Barclay students are already enrolled. Both George Fox Seminary and the Azusa Pacific Graduate School of

Theology have agreed to provide graduate credit for any interested students, now and in the future for subsequent conferences. The conference will provide a strategic mix of younger and older leaders.

2013 Toney Reading

Haviland, KS – For the third year in a row, the Barclay College Men’s Basketball program has partnered with USD 474 to make a positive impact on the youth of our community. It was the second year in a row in which members of the team took part in a reading initiative at Haviland Grade School.

From March 5th-7th Senior Toney Hatton, Sophomores Spencer Huiatt and Tommy Leach, and coaches Royce Bryan and Ray Anderson took time to read books to students at the elementary school in Haviland. From Dr. Seuss to Skippyjon Jones books, a good time was had by all as students were encouraged to become life-long readers.

Haviland Elementary 1st grade teacher Joyce Bryan concluded, “The kids love it! It really encourages the kids to read more when they see people they look up to having fun reading. They think so highly of the college kids, especially those that play sports, that reading become way more appealing.”

The first commit for the Barclay Lady Bears basketball program comes from the state of Alabama. Brooke White from East Lawrence High School in Hillsboro, Alabama, is a guard/forward who should step in and help right away next year. “Brooke is very versatile, with good fundamentals and a high basketball IQ,” stated Coach Lingafelter. “She is going to be a young lady who will be able to be plugged into many different spots. She is long, has good ball-handling skills, is a solid shooter, and has played both guard and center in her career. Plus, her faith and her desires for herself outside of basketball are a very good fit for Barclay College.” White averaged 13 points, 11 rebounds, 5 assists, 3 blocks, and 3 steals her senior year at East Lawrence. At the 4A level in Alabama, East Lawrence won their All-Area Tournament three of her four years there, and she was named to the All-Area Tournament Team twice during that span. White has ranked in the top 10 for her class all 4 years, and was involved with Fellowship of Christian Athletes, National Honor Society and the Mu Alpha Theta Math Club. Brooke’s parents are mother Benetta White and stepfather Jimmy Petty.

Larry Lewis has accepted the offer to join the administration at Barclay College as the V.P. for Institutional Advancement. Larry began his public school teaching career at USD 474 Haviland, Kansas in 1978. During that time he taught PE, successfully coached girls volleyball, boys basketball, and boys tennis.

Larry then began a lengthy career at Friends Christian Schools, Yorba Linda, CA where he taught PE in grades 5 – 8, served as assistant principal for 15 years and as principle 3 years. This year will end twenty five years of service to Friends Christian Schools.

Larry received his B.S. in Christian Education from Fort Wayne Bible College, a B.S. in Physical Education from Friends University, and his M.S. from Wichita State University. Larry also plays a mean trumpet.

Larry’s strengths are administration and organization. He enjoys bicycling, singing, basketball, and softball. Larry and Sheryl have three grown children who all reside in the southern California area. His life mission statement is Ps. 119:10. He and Sheryl’s parents both live in Wichita KS, so this is a bit of a homecoming for them in several ways. When people who know Larry describe him there is always one word used to describe him – integrity.

Larry and Sheryl will be on campus during the graduation and alumni weekend, May 3 – 5. They anticipate moving to Haviland in August to be in place next fall.

At the conclusion of the NCCAA Division II National Tournament held March 5th-9th in Springfield, MO, the NCCAA released award winners for this past season. Among the recipients was Sophomore Charles Brodhead. Brodhead was chosen as a 2nd Team NCCAA Division II All-American. While helping lead the Bears Men’s Basketball Team to an 18-12 record, he led the team in scoring, rebounding, and steals. For his efforts in 2012-13, Brodhead has already been named to the MCCC First Team, ACCA First Team, and the NCCAA Southwest Region First Team.
