Leadership Week provides tools for success
Nearly 100 student leaders and staff at Baptist Bible College will spend a week preparing for the arrival of undergraduates on campus.
The group will participate in workshops, training sessions, and a retreat beginning Monday, August 20 all designed to better equip them with tools for leadership and mentoring. Counseling, disciplinary matters, and discipling peers are key ingredients to success in this ministry.
In a sense they are helping to forming a new organization, the Class of 2011, said Matt Pollock, Associate Dean of Students at BBC.
Building friendships, handling difficult conversations and time management are among the topics set to be discussed. Participants include a dozen resident directors, 50 resident assistants, and deans. The program includes a prayer retreat Monday night and Tuesday at Rock Mountain Bible Camp in South Gibson, Susquehanna County.
About 25 members of the student leadership council will also participate in training during the week. The representatives will discuss social events, relationship building, and participation in off-campus activities, such as Community Appreciation Day.
About 85 percent of undergraduate students live in one of a dozen residence halls on campus. The rooms open at 1 p.m. Friday, August 24 to most students. About 150 students participating in student athletics arrive Sunday, August 19.
Regular fall classes begin Monday, August 27 at the College, Graduate School, and Seminary. For more information, call 570.586.2400 or visit www.bbc.edu.
