MOUNT VERNON—Foreign missionary and BPC alumnus, Phillip Edge, spoke at the Nov. 28 chapel service in Saliba Chapel on the Mount Vernon campus.

Edge attended Brewton-Parker College after graduating from Vidalia High School in 1983. He later attended seminary in Tennessee. He and his family have served in Siberia for the last seven years as a missionary to the aboriginal residents who claim to be the descendants of Genges Kahn.

Edge explained that God has “called the church to stand in the gap.”  He said the world is faced with two constants: “People are perishing” and “God is pursuing.” He explained his role as a missionary is to bridge God’s pursuit with the people who are perishing, whether they are unsaved or unreached. He encouraged students to consider their purpose and “allow God to work through you.”

BPC Junior Emily Oliver shared her personal testimony of working in missions to the country of Moldova over her summer break. Through her experience in sharing God’s love and His message with a deaf boy, she encouraged each student to prepare for their own adventure in the mission’s field, saying, “If God can use me to reach this deaf child, and I don’t even know sign language, then God can use you.” Oliver reached the little boy by drawing pictures of the Bible lessons for him to understand as the lessons were told to the rest of the children.

Dr. Ben Caston opened the Tuesday worship service with “Holy, Holy, Holy”, while Dr. Pierce Dickens accompanied him on the organ. Dr. Caston also sang “Bow the Knee” as an invitation.

BPC students are required to attend six of eight chapels per semester. Chapels are held every other Tuesday in Saliba Chapel at 11 a.m. They are open to the public.
