MOUNT VERNON—Brewton-Parker College students attended a very unique and special chapel service Feb. 19 in the Gillis Gym on the Mount Vernon campus.

The Dublin Middle School Chorus first performed a mini concert featuring a few spirituals and even popular selections such as “Love Train”. Then, featured speaker for the week, Dublin Middle School principal Elgin “Neal” Lanier Dixon, gave the message. Rev. Dixon also pastors Greater Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church in Helena. He was named “Man of the Year” of the Laurens County area in 1998 and makes an effort everyday to serve Christ and follow God’s will for his life.

             

In light of the recent shootings at Northern Illinois University, Rev. Dixon delivered a message of hope, peace and security for BPC students. He emphasized the necessity of God’s will over one’s own. To provide comic relief from such a serious subject matter, he joked with students, but also gave sage advice, concerning grades and self appearance. He left the students with a simple message: “Always trust in God’s will.”
