Wednesday, November 6, 2013, marked an important milestone in the expanding Missions Aviation program at The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) in Graceville. That was the date on which BCF Sophomore Evan Smith made the first solo flight by a student enrolled in the new program. Smith is a student from Wildwood, Fla., enrolled in the exciting Bachelor of Arts in Missions with a Concentration in Aviation degree program at the college.

"We have made a long journey in getting to this point," stated BCF President Thomas A. Kinchen. "Many people have worked, prayed and given financial support so that we could get here. We certainly want to celebrate this achievement with Evan and then move forward as we prepare many other students to complete their training and ultimately reach the mission field. Our Lord has given us a unique opportunity to train a new generation of missionary aviators. The airplane is a wonderful tool to be utilized in helping us in our trademark mission of ‘Changing the World through the Unchanging Word.® ’"
