Meeting 2-1-17

Our speaker, Rodney Norvell, is with the Baptist Collegiate Ministry that  and caters to all faiths of students attending the University. Their main objective is to give students a place to come, meet other students, make friends and hopefully in the end lead them to Christ. They actually own their property, which is on Melrose Avenue and is the childhood home of Victor Ashe. As such they do  not have to “get approval” but the object of the game is to be a part of the program not a problem.  They work in the community to help out where needed and last year traveled to Baton Rough to help in disaster relief and most recently in Gatlinburg. They are getting on the job training on how to be good citizens.
