Comments from Current & Former BPC Students

As a graduate of Brewton-Parker, I have fond memories of my college years. Many of the skills I use daily were developed through my studies on campus. In addition, friendships that I made as a student continue to strengthen and encourage me to this day. As thankful as I am for the Brewton-Parker of the past, I am even more excited about her future. Truly, a new day has dawned at Brewton-Parker College.

One of the many bright lights on the horizon for BPC is the new direction Dr. Hal Ostrander is taking the Religion and Philosophy Division. His belief that the Bible is both inspired and inerrant is enabling him to design ministerial degree programs that compliment the instruction students have already received from parents and pastors. Dr. Ostrander's approach helps to make Brewton-Parker College an excellent choice for students who are serious about pursuing an excellent Christian education.

When I shared with one of my former high school teachers my plans for attending Brewton-Parker College, she related to me that she too was an alumna. Her fondest memories of school, she said, were during her BPC years. After having graduated from Brewton-Parker and then moved on to a number of years of additional education,

I can look back and concur with my teacher's experience as well. My fondest and most beneficial years of education took place at BPC. During my years there, I not only received an excellent education that helped prepare me for additional training, but I was also spiritually nurtured and challenged in a way that provided a solid under-pinning for ministry and Christian growth for years to come.

When I attended one of our SBC seminaries, I discovered that it was my BPC training that had provided my strongest preparation for the seminary experience. How thank-ful I am for the education, growth and encouragement I received during my Brewton-Parker years.

It's so exciting to see the new direction of the Division of Religion and Philosophy. With the arrival of Dr. Hal Ostrander and the leadership he's providing, ministry training for Georgia ministerial students is stronger than ever. For the serious student preparing for ministry, one can find no better opportunity than what is being offered at Brewton-Parker College.

Isaac Newton once declared that, "If I have accomplished anything, it is because I have stood on the shoulders of giants." This is how I feel about the Religion and Philosophy Division at Brewton-Parker College. God has placed great minds here to reach the hearts of His budding young scholars. I thank God for them daily. My prayer is that God will one day see fit to use me as He is using my professors.

My experience here at Brewton-Parker College has been filled with great joy and excitement. With solid biblical teaching, as a recent graduate I now consider myself a better pastor and spiritual leader. Even though there were many challenges along the way -- being a husband, having a family, and pastoring a church -- I believe that I'm now far better equipped to serve our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I'm truly blessed to have had the opportunity to attend BPC.

Colossians 3:23 says: "Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men." God brought me to Brewton-Parker College in order to show me who God wanted me to be. The professors in the Religion and Philosophy Division have been instrumental in helping me to be the servant God intends. I thank God for bringing me to this great school to learn about an even greater God. I know this school is worthy of your consideration.

In a world that tries to force us to apologize for our Christian faith, I give thanks to God that institutions like Brewton-Parker College exist. During my pilgrimage here, I've been trained by highly educated professors who have challenged me both intellectually and spiritually. It has truly been an unforgettable and unregrettable adventure of sharpening my ministry arrows in order to battle for the cross of Christ.
