Heritage Chapel, a special Brewton-Parker chapel service held on Tuesday, January 22, not only celebrated school history but also honored two unique gentlemen who have supported BPC with their talents, lives, and prayers. Dr. Bill Faw, who retired in 2010 after fifteen and a half years of exemplary service at BPC, was honored with special recognition as “Professor Emeritus.” Mr. Bob Sanford, who served as the faithful Academic Assistant to the Provost for over eight years, was also honored on this special chapel with Doctor of Humane Letters, honoris causa.

As special guest speaker, Dr. John Waters returned to his alma mater. Waters graduated from BPC in ’86; he is currently the pastor of First Baptist Statesboro and also serves as the current Georgia Baptist Convention President.

Waters’ message came from the first chapter of Psalm with emphasis on verses 1-3. “Your choices matter. Once you make your choices, they have a habit of making you,” Waters stated. “Where you’re going matters. Some students are heading in the wrong direction; what about you?” He reminded his listeners, “Your roots matter. If you have no root, you’ll bear no fruit. Our delight is to be in the law of the Lord.”

Chapel is held in Saliba Chapel every Tuesday at 11 a.m. This was the first of fourteen services planned for the spring semester.
