BCF Students on mission in Clayhatchee, Alabama.

On Saturday afternoon most college students can be found taking a break from their studies by going to the beach or relaxing with their friends; however, for one group of students at The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) in Graceville, a recent voluntary school project provided a different kind of weekend adventure and ministry opportunity. On Saturday, April 9, thirteen students from a BCF evangelism class joined members of Providence Baptist Church in Clayhatchee, Ala., in order to participate in an extensive survey and outreach project.

The students arrived early Saturday morning uniting with Providence for a time of training, instruction and preparation. Following the training, the group was divided into ten teams of three people each to cover the largest amount of territory. According to BCF Academic Dean and Interim Pastor of Providence Baptist Church Robin Jumper, the ten teams were able to approach over 160 homes, share the Gospel and their testimonies 25 times, with over 60 conversations initiated regarding prayer and spiritual needs.

Though there were no conversions or professions of faith reported during the day, the teams along with Jumper remain hopeful that the project will bear fruit in the near future. “The day was a very positive time of learning and ministry for students, the congregation, and the community,” stated Jumper.

BCF students consistently give of their time and energy to help churches and make a difference in the community. For more information on upcoming projects or events at The Baptist College of Florida, please call 800.328.2660 or visit the website at www.baptistcollege.edu.
