MOUNT VERNON – This year marks the 17th annual Georgia Baptist Health Care Ministry Foundation’s (GBHCMF) Grant Award Luncheon. 8.4 million in checks were handed out to faith-based healthcare providers on February 8th. This year, Brewton-Parker College (BPC) was awarded a grant of $150,000 to continue support for the organization’s school of nursing. By providing opportunities to those who have been receiving nursing training and are helping meet the acute shortage of nurses, BPC is able to give back to the community, which fulfills one of the college’s core values, servant leadership. BPC’s program provides additional capacity to train qualified applicants to meet the need for nurses in the surrounding area. These generous donations will have physical and spiritual impacts on untold numbers of Georgians. This grant is indicative of the wonderful support we have received in the establishment of the school of nursing at BPC.This luncheon allows the GBHCMF’s Board the opportunity to recognize those ministries throughout the state that have demonstrated effective and efficient direct healthcare services to their local communities by emphasizing Christian living and showing compassionate care to the ones they serve. The foundation has awarded over $70 million in grants since its creation, and the GBHCMF is both honored and blessed to provide financial support to these ministries. The GBHCMF hopes that these funds will help lighten the burden of those who offer health care services as well as those who ultimately receive those benefits. Brewton-Parker President, Dr. Echols stated that “BPC is so very grateful for this generous gift that allows us to have a top quality program and scholarship funds that enable our students to pursue their dreams of a nursing career.”

GBHCMF believes Brewton-Parker College’s ministry has demonstrated an active service that aligns with the GBHCMF’s core mission to demonstrate the love of Jesus Christ through the provision of direct health care services. For more than 100 years, the Georgia Baptist Health Care Ministry has offered a ministry of healing to those in need. Providing grant funds to these nonprofit healthcare providers fulfills their mission of service through local organizations

Brewton-Parker College is the only accredited four-year Christian college south of Macon and north of Jacksonville, FL. As a comprehensive Georgia Baptist institution, Brewton-Parker College provides liberal arts and professional programs in a learning community of shared Christian values. Through the application of biblical truth in scholarship and a co-curricular focus on character, servant leadership, and cultural engagement, the college strives to provide a transformational experience that equips the whole student for lifelong learning and service in Christ.
