Time to Refocus
The day began for students with breakfast and prayer in the dorms, followed by chapel at 10 a.m. Faculty and staff enjoyed a special time of fellowship, prayer, and refreshments at 8:30 a.m.
The afternoon provided a unique time of uniting in prayer for the campus. Students participated in a prayer walk around campus to pray for the faculty and staff in each campus building.
Chapel included special speaker Stephen Davey, Senior Pastor at Colonial Baptist Church in Cary, NC. The church has grown to serve thousands of people in the greater Raleigh area. Stephen and his wife, Marsha, have four children, three of whom are alumni of BBC. Pastor Davey has served in ministry for 25 years.
