Minister to University Students
name is Lori Brown, and I am the University Minister here at First
Baptist. My husband Donnie and I have
been married for 24 years. He is
currently the Missions Center Director at Wayland. Our children, Joshua and Hannah are both
currently attending college, so we are deep in the throes of college life at
our house right now!
been actively involved in the lives of university students since I was in
college myself! College students are so
full of energy and excitement for this next stage in their lives, and I love
getting to be a part of that time when they are trying to discover their own
identity apart from what they think their family wants them to be. I love getting to know them and to invest in
their lives while they are here in our community.
verse in our family is found in I Corinthians 10:31 which says, “So whether you
eat or drink, or whatever you do, do it all to the glory of God.” We have told our own children, and we tell
our university students to do everything to the best of their abilities in
order to glorify God. It is my hope that
our university students will find a home here at First Baptist where they can
use their God-given gifts to serve Him and to serve our community.
