Please pray for Steve Hixson, Becky Works, and Ric Wilson who are retiring from the Tennessee Baptist Collegiate Family. Pray that their transitions will be smooth and that God will continue to work in them and through them.
Continue to pray for the Summer Missionaries who are serving worldwide. Many students are almost halfway through their summer and need prayers for extra energy and stamina. Pray they continue to share their faith and the love of God with everyone they meet.
Let us introduce the newest member of our Collegiate Family. Samm Hawes
Campus: University of Tennessee Knoxville
Position: Associate Collegiate Ministry Specialist
Coffee or Tea: Coffee
Favorite food: Potatoes served anyway
Favorite outdoor activity: Backpacking
How many years in campus ministry: 4 years
Why you do what you do: In college the BCM changed my life. Collegians are in the most trying, exciting, life-altering time of their lives. In many cases it is also when they decide whether they will truly follow God or be a marginal Christian and I want the BCM to be a part of the path that leads them to Christ.
The most encouraging aspect of collegiate ministry: When a student comes back and shares that something we learned together or did together helped them help someone else. It lets me know true discipleship is happening because it is continuing.
Prayer Requests: Pray for the transition to Knoxville for my family and I. Pray for UT and the BCM to be open to the movement of God. Pray for courage for me to engage my community and neighbors for Christ.
