Good Monday Morning to All!

What a blessing it was yesterday to see the campus come alive again with students claiming their places in the residence halls! They were greeted by the welcoming aroma of freshly baked cookies—many thanks to Nancy McDonald, to Anna Quinn, and to the alumni who sponsored this project. Thank you also to each faculty or staff member and to each student leader who assisted with the move-in. You were a tremendous help. (A special shout-out goes to Ricky Griffin, who responded quickly to address some special needs.) The evening closed on a special note as Jessie Kellum, Derek Hunter, and Taylor Clark led us in worship at the pier. Many thanks to Tracy Moser and to Jack Moser for organizing a meaningful event that concluded with a prayer at the Euzelian Gates as our students entered the campus to grow in wisdom.

So many have commented on the appropriateness of both LuAnne Travis Ford’s message in song and Dr. Fisher’s convocation address on Friday evening. What a way to start the new year! Emma Ainsworth, Pam Bowman, Tommy Peters, Chris Driskell, Amy Thurmond, and Nancy McDonald played a vital role in organizing such a special evening. Dr. Meeks and Dr. Long provided just the right opening and a most appropriate conclusion.

By the time you read this you may have already had your first shopping excursion to the newly-relocated campus store. Kudos to Dot Locke, Renita Gossett, Karen Thompson, and the host of volunteers who made the move happen in short order last week. By the response of those who attended the sneak peek on Friday evening, the new location is a big hit.

We are very hopeful that the new Wellness Center will be open for use by students, faculty, and staff on Wednesday (we will open to the community later). Locate your workout clothes and lace up your sneakers for a healthy start to the new year. An email or text will alert you regarding the opening. Join me in congratulating Amy Thurmond, Kevin Barefield, Stan Irwin, and Duane Bullard for their dedication to making the Wellness Center a reality.

I suspect I am not the only one grateful to see the dining hall open for business once again! The kitchen and serving areas are both very attractive and serviceable—well worth the wait! We are grateful for MMI Dining and for their contribution toward this very fine renovation.

If you have not visited the Southplex, I encourage you to stop by and see the transformation. Resident Manager Dave McDonald and his assistant Josh Swords will be happy to give you a tour. We are thankful to all who have worked to make this new residence hall happen and will formally acknowledge the many contributions later. Jack Moser, Tommy Peters, and Duane Bullard have played vital roles in preparing this new area for the fifteen young men who will call it home this fall.

Readying a campus for the return of students is no small endeavor, and this summer’s “to-do list” was longer than usual with all the projects we were pursuing. Please take the opportunity to thank Joey Etheridge and his team and Joyce Peters for their work in addressing the many details.

Lynn Gibson and his team have done a tremendous job with recruiting new students. Sheila Freeman and her staff and the staff in the Office of Business Affairs have worked diligently to meet the needs of new and returning students. We will share more enrollment information when the registration period is over. I appreciate all who participated in yesterday’s dedication service.

Today marks the first day of employment for Annabeth Barnes, who joins us as an admissions recruiter. Other staff additions/changes include the addition of Jermael Bingham as assistant men’s basketball coach and Phillip Laney as student activities director. Dave McDonald holds the position of resident manager at the southplex, and Nancy McDonald is our new Director of Alumni Affairs. Please take the time to get to know these great additions to our team.

Dr. Sharon Enzor continues to provide excellent leadership to our SACSCOC compliance report. We are nearing the deadline. Please continue to afford her your encouragement and support as she provides leadership for this important endeavor.

As classes begin tomorrow I take this opportunity to extend a special word of encouragement to our outstanding faculty. Thank you for your relentless pursuit of academic excellence and for inspiring our students to love God with their minds. We are especially grateful for the addition of Dr. Terry Taylor and Dr. Elizabeth Mitchell. Welcome to BMC!

I look forward to seeing you in chapel on Friday as we observe together the tradition of reading the 121st Psalm.

May the Lord order your steps this week.
