Who we are:

Barclay College: is a nationally accredited Bible College in southwest Kansas, offering both Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees. Its mission is to “prepare students in a Bible-centered environment for effective Christian life, service, and leadership.” Founded by Friends in 1917, it continues today to teach, train, equip, and send emerging leaders to serve the Lord through a variety of vocations and ministries, offering degrees in fields such as business, education, psychology, and sports/recreation, in addition to Bible, Pastoral Ministries, and Missions. As a premier pastoral and missions training center, there are currently more BC graduates who serve as evangelical Friends pastors and missionaries than from any other institution of higher education.

Marketplace Ministries Worldwide: We are followers of Jesus Christ who have committed to share His love and message through business ventures in underdeveloped areas of the world. By creating jobs in regions of great scarcity, we endeavor to bring solutions to the problems of poverty, exploitation, and corruption by providing income, opportunity, and ethical practices as part of our holistic mission using business as our platform.

“Business as Mission is a commercial business venture, intentionally devoted to being used as an instrument of God’s mission (Missio Dei) to the world. BAM companies minister to all those who are directly in the business’s sphere of influence, such as their, workforce and their families, suppliers, vendors, customers and clients.”
