MOUNT VERNON—The Baptist Collegiate Ministries of Brewton-Parker College traveled to Jekyll Island for a Fall Convention/Worship Retreat the weekend of Sept. 22 through Sept. 24.
Approximately 30 BPC students joined more than 200 college students from around the state at the annual convention.
The annual retreat gave college students a “break” from the cares and worries of school life and provided these students with a unique opportunity to draw closer to their Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. According to many who attended, the retreat helped these young men and women take an inward spiritual journey while giving each the opportunity to analyze and participate in an outward journey of service to others around them.
BPC campus minister and BCM faculty leader Glenn Wallace made it very clear that, “we have a responsibility as Christians to proclaim Christ on our campus to those who do not know Him.” Therefore, with this in mind, many people who attended the retreat came back to Brewton-Parker with different goals in mind – goals of service and evangelism.
