MOUNT VERNON — Rev. Bucky Kennedy, (AA ’85) pastor of First Baptist Church of Vidalia, delivered the chapel message Sept. 18 at Brewton-Parker College in Mount Vernon.

Rev. Kennedy encouraged the students that “God can use everyone in a special way.” The key verse of his sermon came from Matthew 21:12-15, which mentions removal of impurity from God’s temple. He also used the illustration of someone who has had a great influence on his life, Dr. Michael Guido. Guido’s ministry, centered in Metter at the Guido Gardens, reaches two billion people daily.

Rev. Kennedy reminded students that while not everyone would be used to undergo a huge ministry like Guido’s, God has given everyone unique gifts. He closed his message by offering students the following advice: “You have to remove what is not right with God in order to realize God’s gifts for you.”

Karl Hay, minister of music at First Baptist Church of Mount Vernon and Chief Information Officer at BPC, led the students in worship through music with hymns such as “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross”. Dr. Don Wallace, communication professor, joined him on electric guitar and vocals.

Brewton-Parker College is the only accredited four-year Christian college in south Georgia.
