Tennessee Baptist Collegiate Ministry

The Dyersburg State Gazette reports

A team of 31 Students from five Baptist Collegiate Ministry campuses in West Tennessee partnered to bring hope and peace at Christmas to families in the Avondale suburb of New Orleans by doing disaster-relief work.

Students and campus ministers representing Dyersburg State Community College, Jackson State Community College, University of Tennessee at Martin, University of Memphis, and University of Tennessee Health Sciences in Memphis partnered on the mission trip.

“I loved the partnership and the spirit of cooperation and devotion that happened as a result of different campuses coming together,” said Jeff Jones, BCM director at University of Memphis. “Students with different gifts and abilities gave a week of their winter break to meet the various needs of First Baptist Avondale.”

Merry Christmas!

And a very Happy New Year!
