If you told Lee Dymond, AUM Baptist Campus Minister, 17 years ago that he was going to be a college campus minister, he would have never believed you.
Seventeen years ago, Lee was at a 16 month planning meeting at the church he was serving at. Dymond says during the meeting the Holy Spirit told him that he would not be at that position in 16 months.
A couple of months later his current boss called him and asked him about campus ministry. Lee said it “felt like it was the place to be.”
The mission of the BCM is to “evangelize and mobilize.” They aim to share the hope and love of Christ. Lee’s role is to “teach people how to have a full and satisfactory life though Christ.”
The BCM serves AUM by cooking out on the quad or picking up trash after a game. They do whatever is necessary to accomplish their mission by serving the AUM community.
On Monday night at 8 p.m. BCM puts on “Resonate,” a weekly worship service. On Wednesday and Thursday every week they have a $2 lunch. If you have never been, the first meal is free. Dymond encourages all AUM students to come to these events.
