This year marks the 16th annual Georgia Baptist Health Care Ministry Foundation’s (GBHCMF) Grant Award Luncheon. This luncheon allows the GBHCMF’s Board the opportunity to recognize those ministries throughout the state that have demonstrated effective and efficient direct health care services to their local communities. This year Brewton-Parker College (BPC) was awarded a grant of $100,000 to continue support for the organization’s School of Nursing. BPC is providing opportunities to those who have been receiving nursing training and are helping meet the acute shortage of nurses are ways that it is giving back to the community which fulfill one of the college’s core values, servant leadership. BPC’s program provides additional capacity to train qualified applicants to meet the need for nurses in the surrounding area.
GBHCMF believes Brewton-Parker College ministry has demonstrated an active service that aligns with the GBHCMF’s core mission to demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ through the provision of direct health care services. For more than 100 years, the Georgia Baptist Health Care Ministry has offered a ministry of healing to those in need. Providing grant funds to these nonprofit health care providers fulfills their mission of service through local organizations.
GBHCMF is both honored and blessed to provide financial support to these ministries. Organizations receiving an award represent some of the most efficient “hands-on” providers of health care services in the state. They have also demonstrated excellent core competency service to those in need of health care. It is the GBHCMF’s hope that these funds will help lighten the burden of those who offer health care services as well as those who ultimately receive those benefits.
