Collegiate Minister at UAPB

Tarvoris "Tee" Uzoigwe, serves as the Collegiate Minister at UAPB. Last semester they reached out to students with 14 of them being baptized. There were 23 professions of faith. However, some of those who had made commitments walked away back into the world. One of the young women started a Bible study and a worship group called "Chosen Worshipers."

Eight students are serving in summer camps

Students need to hear the gospel and God is going to give them the opportunity to hear and to share. Pray for the BCM!
