Students, staff focus on prayer

Prayer and praise was the focus of Day of Prayer at BBC&S, a special time of reflection and encouragement held twice each year for students, faculty, and staff.

The event was held October 9 during the second week of Bible Conference. No college classes were held, allowing students to participate in morning and afternoon prayer sessions and activities.

BBC&SPraying across campus
The special day opened as students shared breakfast and prayer in their residence hall. Staff and faculty members gathered together early to pray in the Murphy Memorial Library.

During the afternoon, students broke into groups according to their dorm and moved throughout three different locations in Jackson -- Room 140 for a Praise and Prayer Wall, Room 202 to pray for missions and ministries, and the library to pray for locations around the world.

Students were encouraged to use free time in the afternoon to spend time alone in prayer.

A special morning chapel and evening Bible Conference session featured Pastor Jim Murphy, Head Pastor at First Baptist Church of Johnson City, NY.

Community on campus
Held each semester, Day of Prayer provides a time for reflection, prayer, and worship. Students, faculty, and staff come together as a campus community while being encouraged in individual spiritual growth.

"Day of Prayer gives us a chance as students to spend time with each other and to pray and just be silent," said Aaron Contino, a senior Secondary English Education major from Philadelphia, PA. "We think about all the things that are going on in our lives and around the world and lift our concerns up to God."

Baptist Bible College & Seminary offers an outstanding Christian education through on-campus, online, and other distance learning options. Students go beyond the ordinary, learning to learn and serve with excellence as they gain critical leadership and life skills.
