Over the summer while many of the dorms are empty and students are on mission trips, serving on the church field, or working in camps, The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) in Graceville is excited to welcome mission teams and church groups who give of their time, energy, and talent to volunteer on the campus. A frequent and hard working group arrived this past week from the First Baptist Church of Tangerine, Fla., and Trinity Baptist Church, Apopka, Fla. They spent long hours remodeling the coffee shop in the student center, renovating the restroom in Graceville Hall, as well as painting, deep cleaning, and cutting tree limbs preparing the campus for the next semester.

Very much at home on the BCF campus, Trustees Dianne Lovett and Fran Carlton coordinated the group of nineteen mission volunteers that provided resources and labor needed for several campus projects. A number of the team members were returnees having served on the campus over the last couple of years volunteering and pouring their hearts into the campus projects.

Gaining a little rest in the evenings, the mission team spent extensive hours each day working together to finish the projects assigned. On Tuesday night, BCF President Thomas A. Kinchen led the group in a time of prayer and devotion and was able to share his heart and vision for what God has done and continues to do on the BCF campus and through His people. According to Kinchen, the challenges are great, but the resources saved by the mission teams and volunteer groups working on campus allow BCF to channel more resources into student scholarships and sending students around the world on missions.

BCF’s registered trademark, "Changing the World Through the Unchanging Word®" was truly exemplified this week as the volunteer mission team from Tangerine and Trinity served God by serving BCF.
