Preaching Initiative

June 14, 2024

Barclay College received a grant of $1.25 million from Lilly Endowment, Inc. to help establish a Friends Preaching Initiative at Barclay College. The effort is being funded through Lilly Endowment’s Compelling Preaching Initiative to foster and support preaching that inspires, encourages, and guides people to come to know God’s love and live out their Christian faith more fully.

This grant money will be used to focus on developing an innovative training environment for aspiring preachers at Barclay as well as active English and Spanish-speaking preachers within the Friends denomination. The resources will reflect on the rich and unique heritage of the preaching ministry among evangelical Friends.

Barclay College is one of 142 organizations receiving grants through the Compelling Preaching Initiative. Our heartfelt thanks to Katy Moran for securing these funds and for serving as the Director of this initiative.

Barclay College, in Haviland, KS, provides on-campus and online undergrad programs, and a Master of Arts in Theology online with eight ministry concentrations. Barclay emphasizes a biblical foundation for evangelical faith traditions and offers Full Tuition Scholarships to dorm residents.
