It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas around BMC! From the beautiful trees and nativity scene in Lowrey to the wreaths and garlands bedecking the campus, it is clear that the most wonderful time of the year has arrived. Many thanks to Tommy Peters, Jack Moser, Nancy Byrd, Amy Thurmond, Steven Wilbanks, Chelsey Griffin, Annabeth Barnes and Carol Peters for making the Christmas transformation happen.

We will celebrate the season of our Lord’s birth together tomorrow evening with Lessons & Carols beginning at 7:30 in Lowrey Memorial Baptist Church. Everyone is invited to join us for this time of worship led by the BMC Chorale under the direction of Dr. Greg Long.

Basketball fans will have plenty to cheer about this week with games in Tyler Gymnasium on four nights this week. The men take on Lyon tonight at 7:00; the women play Fisk tomorrow night at 5:30. Tougaloo will be in town Thursday evening for women’s and men’s games. The women will play Southern at 2:00 on Saturday.

Today in chapel we welcome Rita Sweatt back to BMC for what I am sure will be another moving dramatic monologue.

Faculty, staff, trustees, and students are invited to Armstrong Thursday afternoon from 3:30 until 5:00 for a Christmas open house in celebration of Armstrong’s 75th anniversary.

Please keep me in your prayers as I will be away Saturday through Tuesday for the annual SACSCOC conference in Nashville.

Pray for our students as they complete the last week of class before finals. May they stay focused and finish strong!

Greetings,

In the stillness of this start of Thanksgiving week I am reminded of Dr. Leora Duce’s Founders Day address in which she likened Blue Mountain College to the “still, small voice” of I Kings, chapter 19. Let us give thanks today for God’s presence and power both then in the day of Elijah and today at this special place called BMC!

Please keep in mind that our Topper basketball teams will be in action this Friday beginning at 5:30 in Tyler Gym. After a day of shopping, enjoying leftovers, and watching football, come on out and cheer our teams on to victory. They will be encouraged by your support.

By the way, if your schedule permits on Thursday, tune in to Fox Sports South at 3:30 for this week’s SSAC Southern Sports Showcase. BMC will be featured.

May each of you enjoy this week, taking time both to count your blessings and to find ways to express your gratitude. Offices will close Tuesday at 4:30 to allow staff additional time to prepare for Turkey Day. 

From the McMillin family to yours, Happy Thanksgiving!

Good Morning,

Since many of you will be away next Monday, let’s consider ourselves in Thanksgiving mode today. We have so much to give thanks for here on the Hill. For starters, we are thankful for our fabulous faculty—a finer group of scholar-teachers would be hard to find. We are thankful for our dedicated staff and for their commitment to stellar service. We are thankful for the members of National Management Resources and MMI Dining for their hard work. We are thankful for our Board of Trustees. We are thankful for our amazing students. Finally, we are thankful for the mission of Christian higher education to which God has called us. What a privilege it is to serve together in pursuit of significant Kingdom work!

Join me today in congratulating Coach J.D. Parker upon logging his 100th collegiate win on Saturday as our Toppers claimed a “W” over Morthland College. Both basketball teams will be on the road later this week. The Lady Toppers play in their home opener tomorrow evening at 5:30. Please come out and show them your support.

On Sunday at 2:00 BMC will host the Town of Blue Mountain’s annual Thanksgiving service. Please join us in Modena Lowrey Auditorium for this time of worship and prayer.

With gratitude for each of you,
Dr. Mc


The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, and he delighteth in his way.”
Psalm 37:23

Good Morning,

I begin this week by offering a sincere thank you to all who participated in the Founder’s Day events on Friday and in the Topper Fest events on Saturday. Jim Buchanan and Leora Duce enlightened and encouraged us with their addresses during the Founder’s Day chapel. A special thank you goes to Zac Gooch and Rachael McFatridge for their spot-on portrayals of John and Emma Armstrong. As always, we are grateful to Dr. Long and the BMC Chorale for leading us in worship through song. A big, big thank you goes to our Alumni Association and to Nancy McDonald for their hard work in planning these special events.

Kudos to Chelsey Griffin, Kayce Bragg, David McDonald, and Lynn Gibson for putting together a wonderful scholarship luncheon, a great open house at the southplex, and an unforgettable evening with Ellie Holcomb Saturday night. Thank you, Lynn, Joan, Kayce, Taylor, Anna Beth, Beverly, Michelle, and Deborah for heading up a fine Topper Preview Day.

While many of us were enjoying the Topper Fest activities on Saturday, one group spent the day working in the SUB to renovate the area once occupied by the bookstore. We are thankful for the work of Mr. Billy Matkins (husband of Dr. Kay Matkins, former professor here), Dr. Jeff Sweatt, Dr. Terry Taylor, Mr. Brian McElroy, Mr. Wayne Alexander, Dr. Terry Cutrer, and Mrs. Dale Cutrer.

We look forward to observing missions day in chapel today and to hearing from our BSU Fine Arts teams on Friday. Don’t forget to purchase your tickets to the BSU spaghetti supper Thursday evening.

Today we welcome our cooperating teachers from area schools. We are thankful for our partnership with each of these teachers.

Please mark your calendar with a big star on Thursday evening. Our BMC Chorale will present Vivaldi’s Gloria! At 7:00 in the MLB auditorium. What a great way to begin the holiday season! Invite a friend to come with you to support our chorale and to enjoy this magnificent musical presentation.

The home basketball season begins Saturday at 4:00 when our men take on Morthland College. Let’s show our support by packing out Tyler Gymnasium! Topper men and women are on the road at Tougaloo tomorrow; the women will be on the road Saturday.

I’ll be hitting the road again today through Thursday doing SACS work. Pray for safe travels.

The semester is flying by; only three weeks of class remain followed by exams. (Students will enjoy a week-long Thanksgiving break!) Make the most of your time and plan to finish well!

Tomorrow is Veterans Day. Let us not miss the opportunity to salute the men and women who have served our country so valiantly. They fought for us.

Now to Him who is able to protect you from stumbling and to make you stand in the presence of His glory, blameless and with great joy, to the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, power, and authority before all time, now and forever. Amen.
Jude 24-25
