Cumberlands BCM Hosts Fall Awakening

 


Williamsburg, Ky. – University of the Cumberlands (UC) Baptist Campus Ministries (BCM) will be hosting Fall Awakening on September 10 and 11 at 8 p.m. in the Gatliff Chapel. Brent Gambrell will speak at the event.

Brent Gambrell is the president of Brent Gambrell Ministries (BGM), a non-profit ministry based in Nashville, Tenn. Since 1990, Gambrell has been traveling, speaking and ministering to students, singles groups and churches around the world.

Gambrell was once involved in drugs, alcohol and sexual indulgence, but after several years of being caught in this lifestyle, he turned his life around and began serving Christ. He spent seven years on staff at a local church before traveling with a professional Christian comedy/drama team. In addition to BGM’s student ministry, the organization is now working in relief efforts in Haiti.

Gambrell believes that once people are taught about the acceptance of Christ, they respond by following Jesus. His ministry philosophy is that “people will never change their behavior until they change their minds first.”

Fall Awakening will be held for two nights only and will meet the requirement of one convocation credit in the faith development category.

Located in Williamsburg, Ky., University of the Cumberlands is an institution of regional distinction, which currently offers four undergraduate degrees in more than 40 major fields of study; nine pre-professional programs; twelve graduate degrees, including two doctorate, two specialist and eight master’s degrees; certifications in education; and online programs.
