Favorite Part of Attending BPC: “I love the amount of faculty and students that are not willing to live for less than what God desires for their life. God desires to use us for His glory, all of Creation’s purpose is to bring praise to Him, and there are many people at BPC that desire for God to use them for His glory and praise. I also love the breakfast here (shout out to Mrs. Betty!) and the all you can eat food at every meal.”
