BCF President Thomas A. Kinchen will present the Commencement Address at the May 2015 Graduation Ceremony.

The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) in Graceville will hold spring graduation on Friday, May 15, at 10:00 a.m. in the BCF Wellness Center. Fifty-four students who have completed all of the requirements necessary to obtain their degree will be on hand to greet family and friends who share in this tremendous milestone. The traditional commencement exercise marks the culmination of long hours of study, hard work, and sacrifice by graduating seniors during their time at BCF.

The excitement of this graduation is further enhanced by several students having family members who are graduating at the same time or family members that are already alumni of The Baptist College of Florida. For example, sisters, Chelsea and Kristen Spiers, will be receiving their degrees and graduating together; Christian Cochran’s wife, Jared Schneider’s wife, Courtney Livingston’s husband, and Olan Strickland’s daughter and daughter-in-law are all BCF alumni; Travis and Carlee Howard, husband and wife, will be graduating together; Kayla Ellis’ father graduated from BCF; Michelle Johnson’s sister and Spencer Higgins’ brother and sister-in-law graduated from BCF; and Marli Goodman’s father-in-law, two sister-in-laws, and her husband’s grandfathers graduated from BCF. Goodman’s husband, Lewis, is scheduled to graduate next year. Supportive families at BCF have always played an important part in the lives of students continuing their education and preparing for areas of ministry and service.

This semester, graduates will be receiving degrees in the areas of Business, Leadership, Christian Studies, Ministry, Education, Biblical Studies, English, History and Social Studies, Christian Counseling, Missions and Music. According to Thomas A. Kinchen, who is celebrating his 25th Anniversary as President of The Baptist College of Florida, BCF continues to produce graduates who are prepared to “Change the World Through the Unchanging Word.®”
