MOUNT VERNON— Chapel at Brewton-Parker College is always meant to be a time of inspiration, fellowship, and the journey towards the fulfillment of God’s word. However, on Tuesday, Feb. 26, BPC students were addressed by a speaker who challenged them to take God’s word to those who have never heard it before.

Dr. Daniel Akin, president of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (SEBTS), delivered a message primarily focusing on the importance of mission work as followers of Christ. Dr. Akin’s lecture was part of a larger series known as the Horton Lectures, which was offered last week on BPC’s Mount Vernon campus.


Dr. Akin and his wife, Charlotte, have four sons who are all involved in the ministry. Their sons, Nathan, John and Paul, attend seminary and their son, Tim, is involved in missionary work.


Worship through song was provided by BPC faculty and staff, Dr. Don Wallace, professor of communication, and Karl Hay, chief information officer.
