The start of each semester at The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) is a time infused with joy as incoming students embark on this new journey in their life. Empty dorm rooms are transformed into homes away from home, life-long friendships are cultivated, and the campus absolutely comes to life again.

The new Fall 2013 class gathered for orientation the second week of August to learn more about the policies, procedures, campus activities, and requirements of being a BCF student. They were able to meet with their advisors, attend a praise and worship service featuring a message of encouragement from BCF President Thomas A. Kinchen, and then eat lunch with their faculty advisors. It was no surprise how quickly the new students found their way around the campus as they obtained their student ID cards, vehicle registration, and selected classes.

One of the new incoming students, Terry (JR) Benton, is thrilled to begin his educational journey at BCF as he pursues a Bachelor's degree in Ministry Studies. Benton is a 2012 Thomas County Central High School graduate from Thomasville, GA.

"The thing I love about BCF is the undeniable family that is built immediately after arriving. There are so many great and wonderful people here that share the same desire to see the Kingdom come and for God to be glorified in their lives. It's truly a blessing to be surrounded by so many believers who all share the same heart and passion to live fully for Christ, and to love each other as He calls us to," stated Benton reflecting on his initial impression of becoming a student at BCF.

Benton is one of the many students who have come to BCF to prepare for areas of ministry, music, business leadership, Christian counseling, missions, history and social studies, English, and education.
