The Baptist College of Florida's (BCF) Business Law students have been busy this semester immersed in the legal and social environment for multiple business operations. On Wednesday, March 21, four BCF Business Leadership majors were able to experience the legal side of their business degree firsthand by taking a trip to the Houston County Courthouse in Dothan, Ala.

BCF students Celia Bass, Katie Butts, Chantel Oney and Anda Scott, along with their business law instructor Professor Taylor Barbaree, were able to observe during a civil trial. "We enjoy being in the classroom, but going out and experiencing the business world is priceless!" stated Bass. "From our first stop at visiting with Honorable Judge Brady E. Mendheim, Jr., Twentieth Judicial Circuit Judge, to meeting Douglas Albert Valeska, District Attorney, to sitting in on a Civil Lawsuit in the Houston County Courthouse, and ending our day meeting local city officials at Dothan City Hall, this experience will prove to be a valuable asset in our future business endeavors."

The Bachelor of Arts in Business Leadership degree was launched two years ago and will have the first four graduates in May. In addition to the general education foundation and business major concentrations, the business leadership degree carries the required 18 semester hours of Biblical and theological studies found in all BCF degrees, as well as hermeneutics, contemporary ethical issues and an additional Bible book study. Graduates will be well positioned and equipped to serve in numerous areas of responsibility within the business community, local church, denominational offices, and senior leadership vocations. "We are about the business of producing Christian Leaders who are equipped to serve," stated BCF President Thomas Kinchen. "Our world is crying out for Godly leaders in the church and in the marketplace."
