MOUNT VERNON—Brewton-Parker College’s campus minister, Glenn Wallace, and former Admissions Counselor and BPC alumnus, Jeremy Curtis, were members of a mission team from First Baptist Church of Lyons and First Baptist Church of Vidalia to Reykjavik, Iceland July 9-16.

The group worked with the Iceland Project, a ministry started by three churches in Virginia in conjunction with the International Mission Board to help the church planting movement in Iceland.

“Less than three percent of Icelanders attend church even though they have the Lutheran Church as the state church. Most Icelanders see the church as a place to be christened, confirmed, married and buried and not much more,” said Wallace.

The Iceland Project’s goal is to join with born-again believers in Iceland to plant vibrant, living churches throughout the small country, which is geographically the size of Kentucky, with only 300,000 residents, added Wallace.

Individuals attending the trip, in addition to Wallace and Curtis, included Jackie Alexander, Stacey Belflower, Becky Porter, Bill Shiver, Jesslyn Stanley, Rev. Dannie Williams of FBC Lyons and Gwen Williams.
