KIM ANDREWS // lead campus minister // firstname.lastname@example.org
There's something special about serving on the college campus. I love so many things about my job. No two days are ever the same. I am steps away from one of the most beautiful campuses ever. I have opportunities to travel all over the world. I build relationships with students over large amounts of coffee. And I get the incredible privilege of watching students discover God's plan for their lives as they transition from a freshman away from home for the first time to the "real" world upon graduation.
For me college was a time of tremendous spiritual growth. I started my freshmen year running from God's plan for me and ended it surrendered to that fact God has something completely different in mind. Through serving in my local church as a college student I was able to explore, discover and develop my gifts and passions. Using John 15:16a God confirmed for me that my calling would somehow involve mobilizing students to do missions. There are so many opportunities and college is absolutely the best time to go!
Let's see... What else should you know about me? I have a socially awkward but the sweetest dog named Gypsy. I collect elephants from around the world from my travels and those of our student missionaries. (Roll Tide!) I enjoy a really good cup of coffee, and I often create awkward moments...sometimes on purpose.
KYLE BRYANT // campus minister // email@example.com
While I never guessed I would be a campus minister, looking back it makes total sense. I came to faith in middle school, but my college years were the most spiritually formative time in my life. I am a UA alumni, and through my involvement in BCM and my local church in Tuscaloosa, God completely transformed my vision of what life was really about. I graduated with an engineering degree and worked in that field for a few years, but it wasn’t long until God made it clear he was calling me to invest my life in the mission field that is the college campus.
I consider it an amazing opportunity to minister to students on the campus that I once walked as a student myself. I love helping students wrestle with the tough questions of the Bible and equipping them to be a disciple-maker wherever God calls them in life. I have a Master of Divinity from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary and am always willing to nerd out in a theology conversation if you’re up for it.
I am married to an amazing woman named Hayley and we have a son named Jude and a daughter named Chloe. If you’re ever looking to get away from campus, we have a backyard full of hammock-friendly trees.
