    Favorite BCM Memory: Going into college, I was really uncertain of where I was going or what I was doing with my life. I was undecided in my major, unsure if I was supposed to be at UGA, and really scared. I was looking for some sort of ministry to get plugged into, but hadn't really been able to be consistent with any. The people involved in BCM were really kind to me and it happened to work with my schedule so I decided to give it a try about half way through the 1st semester of my freshman year. I gradually got more involved and one day, I was coming back from a hard day of classes and went to the BCM building. Like 5 people said hello to me and I went downstairs and people were playing games and someone threw a football at me. It seems out of the blue, but at that moment I realized that this was the place I wanted to be involved in for the rest of my college career. In a time of unprecedented fear and uncertainty in my life, I had found a home.

It was the first time that I ever felt that I could have a true family through BCM, and I’ll always be greatful to those guys for helping me out of that situation.
