Summer Crew gaining experience through service
Serving in a variety of roles, the members this year's BBC Summer Crew are set to help with countless campus-related tasks.
The six members of the group serve as everything from camp counselors to maintenance assistants, gaining experience through service.
Summer Crew is a unique opportunity for students to work together, build leadership skills, and provide valuable aid to the BBC Maintenance Department.
Under the leadership of Roddy Hannah, Assistant Provost for Student Development, the crew begins the summer with a thorough cleaning of all student residence halls.
During the numerous camps and conferences, crew members' work ranges from making coffee in the Underground Cafe to landscaping. Group members often interact closely with guests and are able to take advantage of opportunities to minister to those visiting campus.
"My goal is for them to leave as a different person," Hannah said. "I want them to have a deeper relationship with God and to grow spiritually."
Led by Hannah, the team will be working through the book, "Instruments in the Redeemers Hands" by Paul David Tripp over the summer.
