At the end of each semester, students at The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) look forward to a time of fellowship and break from studying during the President’s “Midnight Breakfast.” Since most students are frantically finishing research papers, taking exams, putting the final touches on class projects, and clearing out their dorm rooms, BCF President Thomas A. Kinchen initiated a way for students to have just a brief “pause” from the continuous study hours by attending “Midnight Breakfast” where students can enjoy breakfast all together served by the president, faculty, and staff.
On Monday, May 9, students lined up in front of the BCF dining facility at 11:00 p.m. in their finest sweat pants and pajamas awaiting the prayer of thanksgiving that was provided by graduating senior Grady Gomillion. As the doors opened, students were greeted by welcoming smiles and encouraging words from the faculty with huge servings of hash browns, grits, eggs, sausage, bacon, biscuits, gravy, French toast, cereal, and oatmeal.
While the meal was served, students were reminded of just how much love, support, and prayers are extended by the administration, faculty, and staff. A little word of encouragement and a hot meal goes a long way when students are studying hard with the intention of finishing strong.
After the meal and before the lights were turned off, students thanked the faculty that stayed late to serve and cheered the amazing cooks in the Deese Center.
