John Barclay III

With a BA in Biblical and Theological Studies & a minor in Christian Reconciliation Studies and nearly a decade of ministry experience, John is deeply passionate about Jesus & justice being advanced in the church and in the neighborhood. Having served in a number of capacities mentoring, coaching, and teaching children, youth & college students, John believes that the discipleship of children is a two way street that deeply forms our faith as much as it deeply forms the faith of children. In particular, John passionately believes that the answers to many of our contemporary issues lie in empowering and unlocking the Next Generation. John & Bobbie Jo are originally from the Minneapolis area of Minnesota, moved to Chicago shortly after getting married in 2020 and now reside in the Avondale neighborhood.
