Good Morning,

Are you ready for some . . . BASEBALL? While it certainly is warm enough today for a trip to the ballpark, it is still hard to believe that it is time to play Topper baseball—but it is definitely time. The season cranks up Friday at New Albany at 2:00 against Judson with a doubleheader on Saturday beginning at 1:00. Let’s help our guys start the season strong by showing our support. Of course, there’s still plenty of basketball action to enjoy. Both teams are at home Thursday evening to take on Martin Methodist and again on Saturday to take on Bethel. Congratulations to the Lady Toppers for a great win over William Carey on Saturday!

Steve Robbins and I will be traveling Wednesday and Thursday to Michigan to study some programs offered at a sister institution. Keep us in your prayers as we head north.

We are delighted to have Dr. Cindy Townsend as our chapel speaker today. Dr. Townsend is the executive director of our state WMU.

Blessings to all for a great week on the Hill!

Greetings to all on a very cold Tuesday morning!

This message is coming to you on a Tuesday because yesterday was a very full day at BMC! I am grateful to our Service Committee for planning such a productive day filled with opportunities to minister both on campus and throughout our community. Brett Fowler, Jason Wells, Dot Locke, Phillip Laney, and Beth Rinehart did a great job identifying options for service on our annual “day on” in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King. Many thanks to all who braved the cold to join in on one of the projects.

If you weren’t at Tyler Gymnasium yesterday afternoon for our games against Brenau and Dalton State, all I can say is you missed out in a big way. Our ladies claimed another conference win, and our men defeated defending NAIA champion Dalton State by a score of 88-75. The atmosphere in Tyler was electrifying as fans used their “Topper Boppers” (thanks, SBA) to express their support for our BMC athletes. Both teams are on the road to face Loyola and then the University of Mobile later this week.

Tonight at 7:00 James Lewis and Marc Lewis will lead during Prime Time at the BSU. This is an opportunity you don’t want to miss either.

I’m looking forward to our TACT Leadership Seminars this week at 4:30 tomorrow and then again at noon and 3:00 on Thursday. See Kayce Bragg if you haven’t signed up.

I’ll be on the road Friday attending the meeting of our MBC Education Commission at Mississippi College.

Stay warm!

Good Morning,
How pleased I am to welcome our students back to campus for the Spring 2016 semester! It is going to be a great spring at BMC. In addition to engaging in active learning under the tutelage of our stellar faculty, this semester will afford you the opportunity to hone your leadership skills as we launch our first series of TACT Leadership Seminars. In chapel on Wednesday, I’ll share more information about how you can participate. I strongly encourage you to commit to being a part of this special initiative.

Monday, January 18, is MLK Day—a time traditionally observed at BMC as a “day on not a day off.” Brett Fowler will be sharing with us in chapel this Wednesday some of the service projects that are planned for that day. I hope that each of you will plan to give back to our community through service in some way on this special day. I will share more about the significance of the day in chapel on Friday.

A major event on our campus this spring will be our first Ministers and Wives Dinner on Thursday, April 7. Drs. Chuck and Rhonda Kelley will provide words of encouragement for our special guests—the ministers and their wives who so faithfully serve our area congregations.

Of course a highlight of Spring 2016 is BMC’s first scholarship gala on April 12 with Tim Tebow as a special guest and speaker. Student tickets are available in the Business Office. Join me in committing now to pray for Tim as he prepares to address our community in April.

I’m pleased today to announce that Mr. Jody Hill is transitioning from his role as development consultant to a new role as Director of Development at Blue Mountain College. Please join me in congratulating Jody and in welcoming him to our campus.

Tonight’s the night to cheer on your choice for the national college football championship. Students can enjoy the pre-game hype and the game itself at the welcome back party in the SUB at 6:00.

The Topper basketball teams take on Middle Georgia at 2:00 and 4:00 on Saturday. If you haven’t been to a Topper game this season, I encourage you to turn out for Saturday’s games and show your support for our athletes and coaches. Let’s pack Tyler Gymnasium and cheer our teams to two victories!

Also, let me encourage you to visit HeBrews this week and let Mr. David know how much we appreciate having such a great place to hang out and enjoy our favorite form of coffee--I’m all about the sugar-free caramel latte with skinny milk and no whip (as Mr. David describes it)!

As you read this, I am en route to Jackson for the winter MAICU meeting. I will look forward to welcoming everyone back in person on Tuesday.

Dr. Mc

Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest. Joshua 1:9

Happy New Year!

I trust that everyone has enjoyed the time away. This is the day of the new year when our resolutions become official—or at least that is how I approach them. (It’s tough starting a diet or exercise program when you are technically still “on holiday”!) As we begin 2016 I would like to share with you a challenge that a friend shared with me several years ago. As I re-read this challenge just this morning, I resolved afresh to pursue these attitudes and actions in 2016:

1. Let’s be more amazed that we are forgiven than that we are right.
2. Let’s focus on the magnificent things we hold in common.
3. Let’s look for, and assume, the best motive in others’ viewpoints, especially when we disagree.
4. Let’s avoid gossiping altogether.
5. Let’s identify evidences of grace in each other and speak them to each other and about each other.
6. Let’s speak criticism directly to each other if we feel the need to speak at all.

A source of encouragement to me each day is the email devotional that I receive from Bible Gateway with excerpts from the writings of A.W. Tozer. It’s called “Tozer on Christian Leadership.” If you are looking for a new devotional to start off the new year, I recommend that you subscribe to this one.

We will start the new year off with some great basketball action tonight in Tyler Gymnasium. Both teams take on Brewton Parker. The women play at 5:30 followed by the men at 7:30. Come out and cheer on our Toppers! Both teams will be on the road Thursday and Saturday.

This year our Board of Trustees is taking the lead in making prayer a priority at BMC. The first quarterly prayer meeting will be this Friday at 11:00 in the sanctuary of Lowrey Memorial. Bro. Randy Bostick will lead our prayer time as we focus on thanking God for His blessings upon our College and on lifting up our petitions for BMC. You are welcome to attend if your schedule permits.

Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest. Joshua 1:9
