The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) in Graceville, Fla., is partnering with Snowbird Wilderness Outfitters in North Carolina to offer college credit through the Outdoor Leadership and Discipleship (OLD) School beginning this fall.

The program not only offers college credit for students participating in the course but also an adventurous combination of skill-sets for outdoor leadership, theological training, and discipleship. Students can earn national certification in areas such as whitewater rafting, making the curriculum a tremendous asset to individuals interested in camp ministry and outdoor adventure exercises. BCF Director of Distance Learning and Assistant Professor of Leadership, David Coggins, stated, "If students have interests in camp ministries, this would be an invaluable opportunity to get training and college credit for it!" There is even a scheduled mission trip to an orphanage in Honduras included in the course activities.

In coordinating the partnership with the Snowbird Wilderness Outfitters, Coggins recognizes the joint venture as a dream come true as well as an answer to many prayers, "It has been a dream of mine to provide credit for this type of leadership training and adventure for students. It is truly an answer to prayer."
