August 26th marked the date for the first Barclay College Men’s Soccer game for the 2014 season. They took on a talented junior varsity squad from Oklahoma Wesleyan University (Bartlesville, OK) in an exhibition match before beginning their regular season schedule this coming Saturday.

It was a muggy evening match in Haviland, KS  that was filled with excitement and drama. The Bears were slightly undermanned for the contest as they continue to solidify their roster for the regular season, but it did not matter one bit. In front of packed stands, decked out in red, the Bears gave them plenty to cheer about. Freshman Julio Cobo (Katy, TX) got some space in the 7th minute and found the back corner of the net to put the Bears in front early. The remainder of the half was a battle with both teams playing hard and keeping possession. The score remained 1-0 in favor of the Bears heading into halftime.

In the second half, the Eagles played a desperate brand of soccer, picking up four yellow cards for a variety of offenses, ranging from hard fouls to misconduct from the bench. Eventually, they were able to knot the score up at 1-1 in the 66th minute. The Eagles continued to pressure the Bears, but the back line stood the test and the midfielders competed valiantly. Then in the 81st minute, Freshman reserve, Austin Ghelarducci (Derby, KS) sent a great through ball to Freshman Tyler Wright (Wichita, KS) who calmly placed the ball in the back net from near the 18 yard line. With the Bears back in front 2-1, they played energized and even though Freshman Goalkeeper Josh Herndandez (Atascadero, CA) piled up five saves on the match in an incredible performance, the Eagles were able to capitalize on one mistake in the 85th minute to tie the game. The final score ended up being 2-2.

The Bears are back in action this Saturday as they take on a Midwest Christian College Conference opponent in Calvary Bible College (Belton, MO) at 2:00 PM in Haviland, KS. It will be the Bears first regular season game.

Group Of Senior Couples Enjoying Meal Together

September 30 – October 3

Click here to fill out the Reservation Form for the Senior Camp on the Prairie.


You will be staying in spacious air conditioned rooms with connected baths.


The college has 4 camping stations with all the amenities for camping. The local Thresher   Show Grounds could set up about eight locations for campers with electricity and water only.


Here is your chance to enjoy all of the fun you can have with a 4×4 and the sandy back roads of Haviland.  Dr. and Mrs. Halverstadt will do their best to not get you stuck (not really).  During the ride you will see an outdoor park with exotic animals. You may even get to tour the “4 bay home” that Ron Kendall is building.  You will also enjoy a break at the German Baptist pastry shop. If you do not have your own 4×4, I may loan you mine.


You will want to be a part of such old standards as “The Price is Right,” “To Tell the Truth,” Family Feud,” “Wheel of Fortune” and “What’s That Tune?”  Since you have always wanted to be on these shows, here’s your chance. 


This is a ten mile, one way, bike trip.  It will provide a stop at a convenience store to “catch your breath.”  You may bring your own bicycle or one will be provided.  You will need a mountain bike or a highway bike for this.  You need to be a little healthy to make this trip.  The guide for the trip is Dr. David Williams.


This back trail trip lasts for seven miles. It is down the back roads and along an abandoned highway bed.  You need a trail bike or something that can handle sandy roads real well. The guide for this is experienced riders, Pete and Gayle Zook.  They have already planned for bicycles you may ride – or bring your own.


Haviland is the closest incorporated city to the Brenham Meteorite Field.  This field of meteorites is one of the most highly recognized fields of meteorites in the world.  In 1995 the largest pallasite meteorite that was ever found had landed near Barclay’s President’s home.  We are all pleased that the meteorite missed it. J The museum carries a selection of meteorite jewelry.  You may want to wear some home.


You’ll feel like you have caught your dream whether you catch a fish or not.  The guide for this experience is Jon Folkerts, the master outdoorsman.  He takes you to t (which is really a pond) where you can fish to your hearts content.  The pond is spring fed, which means it’s always full of water.  Bring your own rod and reel, or use one of ours.


Your tour will begin at Hall’s Flea Market in Wellsford, 4 miles from Haviland. Next you will get to visit the home of Carol Brown where you will be captivated by the antique furniture, and stories Carol can tell (which will surprise you).  Then you may enjoy the Antique Junction, right here in Haviland – one of the nicest antique venues in the area.  So, during this trip you experience the best of three worlds.


This will take you back to the music you love.  If you have never seen a Gaither Homecoming you will not know what to expect.  But if you have, you’ll know you won’t want to miss it.


If you are into the sports, here is your chance to shine.  We have the equipment, but if you want to bring your own, do it. Who knows, you may be the camp’s champ in your sport.


The story of Haviland’s own namesake, Laura Haviland, is a remarkable story.  Laura was small of stature but a giant when it came to making things happen.  The Book review by the author will inspire you to want to read the book. The author will even place her signature in you own personal copy.


By the end of two days you may have heard about some things you had to miss and wished you had opportunity to do them.  Wednesday evening you will get to choose your Thursday morning activity. It will be a good feeling to be able to go home knowing you got to do what you wanted to do.


You will be surprised what you will learn about the city of Haviland and the County of Kiowa.  There will be a bus tour with our own V.P. for Registration and Records, Dr. Glenn Leppert, as narrator.  He has a ready knowledge of this city and the County of Kiowa.  The narration will be micked so you won’t even need your hearing aids.


This visit will give you an opportunity to enjoy the activities at the Kiowa County Senior Center .You will enjoy the Wii Bowling game, pool, table games, outdoor games including horse shoes and the walking path.


During your time at camp you will enjoy singing and listening to music you love.  With a little drama and time with Quacker, the puppet, and you’ll feel at home with people you like.


This will be an unbelievable story of the disappearance of our neighboring city of Greensburg.  The disappearance of the town was by a tornado in 2008 and now, its rebirth.  You will see the new hospital, commons building, high school and the old soda fountain where you may have ordered a soda at some other time.


This is your opportunity to spend some time with Dr. Fred, author and Professor Emeritus.  His beautiful home, in the newest neighborhood of Haviland, will bless your soul and fill you full.  During your time, you may play croquet, horseshoes or sit on his wonderful second floor veranda and see the country prairies.


Enjoy some time at the new museum with Doc Rock.  The museum is for showing how God created everything. You may even get to see some things you have never seen before, and maybe The Doc will give you a Rock. 


You’ll love to do either of these activities with those who love to do it too.  We are blessed with local people who are close to being professionals in these areas. Bring your pictures, you will be surprised by what they become.


You will have opportunity to meet the Barclay Family.  There will be a dinner for you and the faculty and staff so you may become better acquainted with them.


Your devotional time will be enriched by the people who will be with you when you have your devotions.  Members of our staff and faculty will share times of inspiration when you may share with others your own private times with the Lord.


These will always be out and a part of your spare time during the weekend.  Whenever you want to get to yourself or with others like you, go to the tables with the puzzles and table games.

A Church Multiplication Conference for church and denominational leaders, previous and potential church planters, 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 second 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. For the first conference (held in May, 2013), organizers hoped that 30-40 representatives would participate in a small precursor to the main conference in 2014. However, more than 100 leaders from around the country gathered for the preliminary inspirational event. Among other things, this larger-than-expected initial response indicates both an interest in and a need for evangelism and church planting among Friends.

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 to learn, grow, and to stir one another up to “love and good deeds.” With God’s help, we need to prayerfully consider how we might shed a maintenance-mentality and stir up a strategic church multiplication movement.


Dr. Tim Roehl has a heart for church planting and especially the development of leaders for church multiplication movements. He is the former director of church planting ministries for two North American denominations (the Evangelical Church and the Wesleyan Church), served as a missionary with Church Resource Ministries (CRM) with their Church Multiplication Team, and provided leadership as a Lead Coach and Trainer at Church Planting Boot Camps for the Church Multiplication Training Center (CMTC). He has a Doctor of Ministry Degree in Transformational Leadership for Church Multiplication Movements. Today, Tim serves as the Director of Training and Development for One Mission Society (OMS), equipping leaders in over 70 nations.

Tim’s passion is to “lead leaders to discovery, clarity and destiny for the sake of eternity.” To that end, in addition to speaking frequently for leadership training and church multiplication purposes, he has developed a variety of church planting and missional ministry resources while also authoring five books. His most recently published book is called: “Game Plan: Developing Intentional Missional Ministry.”

Bob Adhikary, EFM Missionary, will present a stirring message in one of our general sessions, live via Skype. He is an experienced church planter and leader of church planters who has a passion for the lost, developing leaders, and the spread of the gospel among people of every nation, including the United States. You will not be the same after hearing what God has to say through him in relation to church multiplication!

Amilcar Sosa, Senior Pastor of Bell Friends Church in Southern California and the Director of Latin Church Development for EFCSW, is a veteran church multiplication leader. He will inspire and challenge us to identify and develop new cross-cultural church plants, especially among the growing Hispanic populations throughout the country.

A Variety of Other Speakers will be featured in a number of relevant and helpful workshops. Led by experienced leaders and church multiplication practitioners among Friends from around the country, these sessions will both inform and provide opportunities for interaction to address a number of church multiplication strategies and solutions.


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! Students and young adults who have a vision to make a difference in the world for Christ are especially urged to attend. This conference will provide a strategic mix of younger and older leaders.


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, August 6 for anyone who would like to participate. In addition, we plan to have a Post-conference “student and youth” emphasis on Saturday, August 9. At least one regional group in the past has also requested to be able to stay after the conference for a time of debriefing and fellowship with their own pastors and leaders. Post-conference gatherings like this are possible by prior arrangement.


Undergraduate credit is available through Barclay College. 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. God’s call.


Nothing significant happens unless people pray. We recognize that we are completely dependent on the Lord and need Him to pour out His Spirit in such a way that Friends’ hearts are awakened and that a multiplication movement of evangelism and church planting might be born. Many area and regional prayer groups are springing up around the country both before and after the conference based on Acts 4:31, and the conference itself will have a prayer emphasis. For more information (or to start or join a prayer group), contact Kay Wilson, the National Prayer Director for a Friends Church Multiplication Movement, at

The Barclay College Women’s Basketball Team will have a new face to lead them onto the court in 2014-2015 and his name is Ryan Kendall. It will be the first time in four years that Kendall will be back in the saddle on the bench as a head coach, however, he is no stranger to the Barclay College Athletics Department. This will actually be his fifth season as the Bears Head Women’s Basketball Coach as he also led the Lady Bears from 2002-2006.  Most recently he served as the Barclay College Athletic Director and Head Men’s Basketball Coach from 2002-2010.

“I love coaching and I’m very excited to be back on the bench. It will also be great to be able to coach with one of my former players, Marcus Mitchell,” said Kendall. “Brad (Lingafelter) always recruited good athletes with character and now I get to benefit from a great core of those returning players.” The Lady Bears only graduate two players and look to benefit from returning most of the roster.

His vision for the Lady Bears moving forward is to carry on the mission of Barclay College on the basketball court. He aims to not only help these women develop as basketball players but more importantly  in their Christian walk. Using basketball as a tool he wants his players to use their talent to both glorify God and to develop into who God has called them to be.

Most recently Kendall has been instrumental in the development and launching of the new Sports and Recreation Ministry Degree where he has served as chair over the past three years from 2011-2014.

His coaching career started back in 1995 at Wallace County High School in Sharon Springs, KS. While there he coached jr. high football, high school boy’s basketball, and high school track and field until 2000. After one year teaching and coaching junior high in Sherwood, OR, and one year at Greensburg High School, Kendall found his way back to Haviland and Barclay College. In addition to coaching men’s and women’s basketball, he has also played a vital role in starting the men’s and women’s cross country program at Barclay College.

Educationally Kendall has a Bachelor of Arts in History from George Fox University (Newberg, OR), a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education from Newman University (Wichita, KS), and a Master of Arts in Christian Leadership from Liberty Theological Seminary (Lynchburg, VA).

He recently celebrated his 20th anniversary with his wife, Hannah. Together they have three daughters: Kaelie (18), Marissa (15), and Lauren (13).

adrian reading

Every Spring for the past four years the Barclay College Men’s Basketball Team has partnered with USD 474 to be a part of the educational process for the youth of Haviland. This year, much like the last two years, members of the team took part in a reading initiative.

On the afternoon of Tuesday, March 11th, eight members of the men’s basketball team and two of their coaches read Dr. Suess books to both kindergarten and first grade students at the elementary school.

“When members of the basketball team come to read to the first graders their faces light up!  The entire class knows about Barclay College and having a “very big person” from the college, let alone the basketball team, read to them is awesome,” First Grade Teacher Joyce Bryan explained.

This partnership is another important component of the Men’s Basketball program and the development of their players. According to Head Coach Royce Bryan, the team is constantly looking for opportunities to give back to the local community and to make a positive impact on kids. “This is one of the best opportunities we have available. It’s hands on and is a great teaching moment for both mentors and students alike.”

“It forms a bond between our classes and Barclay College students,” Joyce Bryan added. “Thank you Men’s Basketball Team for taking the time for a “little person.””


Friday and Saturday saw Calvary Bible College (Belton, MO) and Ozark Christian College (Joplin, MO) come to Hockett Auditorium for a pair of Midwest Christian College Conference games.

Up first were the Lady Warriors from Calvary. The game was a tough one in the first half as both teams fought hard. After 20 minutes the Lady Bears held a 5 point lead, 32-27. The beginning of the second half was dominated by the Bears as they raced out to a 16 point lead. Then Calvary put on a press that really bothered the Bears and as time winded down, it was the Bear’s Sophomore ReaLyn Epp that connected from three to knot the game up at 60-60 and force overtime. The Lady Bears regrouped and outscored Calvary in overtime by four to win 68-64. Freshmen Mercedeez Bell had her best game of the year, leading the Lady Bears with 21 points. Senior Brandi Moral chipped in 16 points and Freshmen Mikeal Wilder also put in 15 points.

Head Coach Brad Lingafelter remarked, “First I want to give Calvary a ton of praise. They could have quit when we built the big lead but they just kept on coming back. I also think my team did a great job of regaining composure and closing the deal.”

On Saturday the Lady Bears faced a much improved Ozark Christian squad from a year ago. The game was neck and neck the whole way through. The Lady Ambassadors were able to outscore the Bears in the first half by a score of 42-37. The second half seemed to be a mere replica of the first half as the Lady Ambassadors once again out-scored the Bears in the second half 44-38 for a 86-75 win on the Bears’ home court. Moral led the Bears with 18 points while Epp and Freshman Brooke White contributed 16 and 15 points respectively. Following the game, Lingafelter loved the growth and improvement he has seen in his young squad but also noted that they need to keep pushing on.

This week the Bears will host Manhattan Christian College (Manhattan, KS) at 5:00 PM CST on Tuesday. They will travel to Moore, OK to take on Hillsdale Free Will Baptist on Thursday at 2:00 PM and then head north to Omaha, NE to play Grace University at 2:00 PM on Saturday.
