MOUNT VERNON— BPC Adjunct Professor of Political Science and former BPC Trustee, Roger Byrd was elected to the GBC Education Commission at the 2013 Annual Meeting. The Education Commission of the Georgia Baptist Convention supports the ministry of the three Baptist colleges in Georgia and administers several scholarship programs. The Georgia Baptist Colleges are Brewton-Parker College, Truett-McConnell College, and Shorter University. Byrd’s term on the Commission will expire in 2018. 

Byrd said, “I appreciate the opportunity to serve in this capacity. Georgia Baptists have a vested interest in our colleges. If true and complete knowledge is found in Christ Jesus as Colossians 2:3 states, then a Christian liberal arts education is an important part of equipping the Body of Christ to reach the world. It is imperative that Georgia Baptists have vibrant and mission-minded Georgia Baptist colleges. I want to offer what I can to aid in this effort.”

Brewton-Parker College is the only accredited four-year Christian college south of Macon and north of Jacksonville, FL. The mission of Brewton-Parker College, a Georgia Baptist college, is to develop the whole student through the application of Biblically-centered truth to a liberal arts curriculum in a community of shared Christian values.
