Welcome to the BCM family
We are so excited that you found us online! This site should help you more easily connect with us. The UTCBCM is all about helping UTC students better understand what it means to follow the way of Jesus. While the University is working to help you grow your intellect, we want to invest in helping you grow spiritually and emotionally. It is our hope to help you realize the potential for leadership that God has placed in you. We want to walk alongside as you explore how to live in such a way that your life will impact our world for the sake of Christ. We believe that God has placed you here at UTC for a purpose!
Whether you’ve been in church all your life or never even walked in the door of a church, there is a place for you at the BCM. Our ministry exists because some generous Baptist people believe in you and your potential to change the world. This ministry is made possible by the Tennessee Baptist Missions Board (Cooperative Program & Golden Offering for Tn. Missions) as well as the local Hamilton County Baptist Association, local church partners and generous alumni.
But you don't have to be Baptist, in fact many of our students are not. We want you to be a part of a community during college that will be supportive, encouraging and will help you get more from college than a degree. We believe you were brought to this campus for a purpose.
Steve has been a college minister for over 30 years-19 of those in Chattanooga. He is married to Rhonda and has two adult sons, Jacob & Andrew. He loves to read, do woodworking, and tell students the same stories over and over.
Grace is our Program Associate. She graduated from Lee University in 2017 with a degree in Psychology. She loves to laugh, take pictures, and frequent all of the best coffee shops in town.
Tyler is our Program Assistant. He is currently finishing up his senior year here at UTC. He loves sports, all things coffee, and long walks in the mountains. Oh, and Student Life Camp.
Michael is our custodian, but he prefers the term "Beautification Manager." He is a senior Psychology major at UTC. He enjoys hiking, playing board games, cheeseburgers, and anything to do with movies.
