William Barner

On May 10 Brewton-Parker College presented William “Bill” Barner with an honorary Doctor of Divinity degree.

Barner, a 1959 BPC alum, was the honored guest at the school’s spring commencement and as part of the events was recognized for churches planted in Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Alaska, and the Netherlands.

A native of Guyton, Barner worked in several states as a church planter, senior pastor, director of missions, and executive for the Home Mission board. Over 55 years he was either interim or senior pastor of 18 churches, 14 of which were in Georgia.
