Brewton-Parker students attend BSU Fall Conference

By LeAnn Scott

About 60 Brewton-Parker College students attended the 2005 Baptist Student Union Collegiate Fall Conference on Sept. 23-25 at Jekyll Island. Discipleship Quest, or DQuest, was this year’s theme.

During the weekend, the focus was on what being a disciple is and is not, and the importance of being a disciple. During the weekend, there were both large-group worship times and small-group times.

Worship was led by Greg Pinkner, who lives in Knoxville, Tenn, with his wife, Jennifer, and is the college and teaching pastor for Fellowship Church. Pinkner describes his speaking style as “truth and humor.”

The music leader for the weekend was Dave Hunt, who is the worship leader at a college gathering, Refuge, in Nashville, Tenn., as well as the worship leader at Rolling Hills Community Church.

When it was time to break up into small groups, students were divided into four large groups of at least 200 other college students. Once in these groups, the students were broken down into smaller groups of about six to seven people per group.

In these small groups, they openly discussed questions about discipleship and what was covered in the large group worship time.

On Saturday after dinner, a special guest from Moldova spoke to the students. Oleg Reutki challenged them to consider Moldova for summer missions.

Also that night, at worship, special recognition was given for the summer missionaries that served this past summer and a special offering was taken up for summer missions for next summer.

While the students learned a lot about what being a disciple truly means, they had fun as well. On Saturday, during their “free time,” everyone went to have a little fun, whether it meant going to St. Simons shopping or hanging out at the beach making sand castles.

The weekend opened a lot of college students’ eyes to new ideas, including that “Discipleship is a journey…Let’s keep on.”
