Greetings to each of you on this MLK Day!

To commemorate the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., students, faculty, and staff at Blue Mountain College are spending this day performing acts of service across our campus and across our community. There is much to be learned from Dr. King’s admonitions to his followers, including the instructions “to seek to perform regular service for others and for the world.” May our actions today both illustrate and enhance the legacy of Dr. King.

I am deeply saddened to report this morning the passing of Mr. David Gregory. A member of the Mt. Zion Baptist Church team of volunteers who had come to campus to continue their work on the Palmer-Donnell house, Mr. David became ill Saturday evening while staying on campus and passed away late that night having suffered either a stroke or a heart attack. The craftsman responsible for the intricate woodwork adorning the Palmer-Donnell house, Mr. David spent his final days and hours doing what he loved to do: use his skills on mission for Christ. His many contributions to the P-D house will serve as visual reminders of his selfless commitment to service and to the building of God’s Kingdom. We will pass along arrangements when they become available. Please keep Mr. David’s family and his church family in your prayers.

May you find inspiration in the service of others and may others find themselves blessed through your efforts today.

Dr. Mc

Greetings!
It is a pleasure on this blustery day to welcome our returning students and to greet the new students who are taking their first courses at BMC. Of course, we are thankful for our devoted faculty and welcome them back from a much-deserved break.

Periodically this spring in the Monday Message I want to highlight books that I have read or that I am currently reading that I consider to be especially thought-provoking and timely. I look forward to conversing with those of you who have an interest in the same works. Of course, I’m always eager to receive recommendations for “good reads,” so don’t hesitate to pass titles along. The work that has captured my attention in recent days is John S. Dickerson’s The Great Evangelical Recession.

Published in 2013, Dickerson’s book examines the status of evangelical Christianity in the United States. The first half of the book describes the number of evangelical Christians in our nation and projects the impact of what Dickerson presents as a surprising decline. According to Dickerson (and substantiated by a number of studies), evangelicals account for 7% of the population. In the second half of the book Dickerson focuses on a series of steps Christian leaders must take to respond to these changing demographics. Among other responses, Dickerson encourages Christians to make a difference for the Kingdom simply by looking for ways to do good and by devoting ourselves to discipleship. Let us do our best to heed this simple admonition in 2017!

As we settle back in to the swing of things this week, I encourage our students to start strong so that you can finish strong. Form good study habits early and avail yourself of the support available in the TLC. Make this your best semester yet!

Keep me in your prayers as I will travel to Jackson Friday for the winter Education Commission meeting at MC. Our basketball teams will be in Hattiesburg Thursday to take on William Carey and in action again on Saturday here at home. Make plans to be at Tyler Gymnasium at 2:00 to cheer on the Toppers!

Have a great week!

Good Afternoon and Happy New Year!

I trust that your Christmas and New Year observances were filled with much love, joy, and peace. As we work our way back into the swing of things, you perhaps have found yourself pausing to figure out what day it is, or maybe you are finding it hard to write “2017” after practicing “2016” for so long. Instead of settling smoothly back into our daily routine, now is the opportune time to form some new habits. I was challenged this morning as I read leadership guru Tim Elmore’s description of his end-of-year ritual: he sets aside time to review the prior year and then spends half a day writing his “action list” for the coming year. This list features ways in which he plans to grow during the 365 days that together form 2017. His list includes his answers to the following questions:
  1. What are my greatest dreams for 2017? What projects will these dreams require of me? What daily actions must I engage in to fulfill them?

  2. What standards will I live by, throughout the next year:

    • Heath Standards
    • Family Standards
    • Financial Standards
    • Friendship Standards
    • Personal/Spiritual Standards

  3. In what areas of my life do I most want to grow in 2017?
  4. What books will I read this next year to achieve those growth goals?
  5. What mentors will I seek out to achieve those growth goals?
  6. What magazines will I scan and file to achieve those growth goals?
  7. What events will I attend to achieve those growth goals?
  8. What podcasts (audio recordings) will I listen to, to help me grow?
  9. What will I do Monday through Friday to be intentional about my growth?
Perhaps these questions will prompt each of us to devise our own intentional growth plans. May we indeed discover new and productive ways in which to grow together at BMC in 2017!

With our students still away enjoying the break, our activity list this week is shorter than usual. Our men’s and women’s basketball teams take to the road to compete against the College of Coastal Georgia and Brewton Parker on Thursday and Saturday. Pray for their safe travels.

Staff are invited to participate in the next GROW BMC prayer session at 11:00 Wednesday in the auditorium. At noon on Friday Dr. Ronald Meeks will lead the quarterly trustee prayer session, also in the auditorium. Dr. Meeks has planned a time of “upper room” reflections; please plan to participate in either or both of these important gatherings. If you can’t be on campus, please plan to pray where you are.

Have a blessed week!

Greetings to all on this Wednesday of Exam Week!

At this point we are half way through finals. I hope that everyone is faring well and staying on course to finish strong. Drs. Enzor, Mattox, Teague, and I have just returned from the annual SACSCOC conference in Atlanta, where the three of them presented in two different sessions. Their presentations were well received, and they represented Blue Mountain College—as they always do--with excellence. They made this president proud!

Also deserving of recognition is our very own Dr. Lela Hale, who was elected last week as the new Marshall County Superintendent of Education. While we will certainly miss Dr. Hale, who has been in every way an outstanding faculty member, we wish her much success as she provides leadership and encouragement to the faculty and students of the Marshall County school system.

Kudos to our Alumni Director Kayce Bragg and to our Alumni Association President Renelda Pharr Owen for their organization of last weekend’s Topper Fest. Although the weather was somewhat frightful, we still had a good turnout and lots of fun was had by all.

If you have not had the opportunity to do so, please congratulate Miss Johnnie upon the naming of Tyler Gymnasium court in her honor on Saturday. It was a special and unforgettable moment.

I want to offer my appreciation to Dr. Delise Teague for her leadership of our “own a piece of BMC history” project. Delise organized the production and promotion of plaques and nameplates made from the original floor in the gymnasium. Proceeds have gone toward the cost of replacing the floor. The following individuals contributed in significant ways to this project: Connie Newby Davis, Cliffa Foster, Charlette Bain Foster, Vicki Price, Johnnie Armstrong, H.L. Rowen (who made the plaques and nameplates), Bob Hill, Mark & Kellie Fowler, Nancy Byrd, Amy Thurmond, Kayce Bragg, Jody Hill, Emma Ainsworth, Lavon Driskell, Clint Gannon, and Will Kollmeyer. We are grateful for your tireless efforts. You can still support this cause. For more information on how to do so, contact Nancy Grisham.

I close this week’s message with a Christmas prayer for each of our students and their families. May this season’s celebration of our Lord’s nativity be filled with peace, joy, rest, and gratitude for the gift of a Savior. Enjoy your time away and be safe. We look forward to your return in January.



God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen,
Let nothing you dismay;
Remember Christ, our Savior,
Was born on Christmas day,
To save us all from Satan's power
When we were gone astray.
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy,
O tidings of comfort and joy.

But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever. Amen. II Peter 3:18
