MOUNT VERNON— In his Vice Presidential hiring announcement, Dr. CB Scott shared a vision of getting Brewton-Parker students behind the pulpits of Georgia Baptist churches. For those attending the April 8, 2014 chapel service, a glimpse of that vision was offered. After a worship service led by the BCM Band, seven students from the Ministerial Association shared their testimonies and devotionals that God laid on their hearts. A common theme ran through all of the stories: God works in the lives of those who seek him.

“We fall,” Les Evans, a junior, stated, “But God’s love is there to motivate us to get back up, because it’s unconditional love.”

“In life, you’re supposed to be second,” Bryan Mauldin said. In his testimony, he contrasted his life as a not-so-athletic individual alongside two extremely athletic friends with a Spiritual relationship with Christ. He said God taught him a lesson by trying – and failing – to compete with his friends, “Even if I’m better than everyone else, I’m still second to Christ.”

Suzanna Moye shared her story of struggling with lust and sexual desires, despite being saved. She urged the chapel congregation to continue running the race, referencing Galatians 5:7. “Giving your life to the Lord,” she stated, “forgives you of your sins, but you still struggle with those desires.”

“We fall,” Les Evans, a junior, stated, “But God’s love is there to motivate us to get back up, because it’s unconditional love.” Evans shared how, even though he grew up in a Christian home, he lost focus when he initially started playing baseball at Abraham-Baldwin Agricultural College. “The things you put your hope in have a direct link to your joy,” he shared, as he urged listeners to place their hope in Christ.
