0 825

In spite of the inclement weather on December 8, it was an exciting day for graduating seniors at The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) in Graceville. They joined their family, friends, faculty, and staff in the BCF Wellness Center to celebrate years of hard work and intense study fulfilling all of the requirements for their college degree.

The 2017 fall graduating class represented a wide-range of degrees earned, including:

  • 1 associate degree,
  • 1 associate of divinity
  • 41 bachelor’s degrees
  • 2 masters degrees
  • 1 doctorate in Christian letters

Family and friends cheered as the new college graduates received their hard-earned credentials. Graduates were then instructed to move their tassels from right to left, symbolizing the final official act of graduation.

Tom Kinchen, president of BCF, encouraged graduates to keep their focus on Christ in the midst of a world where fear abounds.

The recent group of BCF graduates are trained, equipped and prepared to set the example as the next generation of Christian leaders as they are “Changing the World Through the Unchanging Word.®”

We celebrate with BCF in honoring their new graduates and pray for the Lord’s blessing in their respective ministry fields!
