A little about BCM...

As believers in Jesus Christ, wherever we are, our purpose remains the same: to grow in Christlikeness and share with everyone the hope of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Since God has placed each of us at the University of Montevallo, we are called to carry out that purpose on this campus. BCM seeks to be a community of encouragement and a place of equipping for believers to further understand their calling and walk in greater obedience.

Madison Lawrence

Student Leader

Hi! My name is Madison Lawrence and I am a Junior Mathematics major at the University of Montevallo. I have been a part of our BCM for the past three years and have enjoyed every second of it. Being on the leadership team this year has allowed me take on responsibilities that I never thought I could do. For instance, I led a bible study! A fun fact about me is that I am from a tiny island in the Caribbean named St. Vincent and the Grenadines!

Noah Terrell

Student Leader

Hi, my name is Noah Terrell and I am a sophomore music education major. I am a member of First Baptist Church of Pinson. I joined the BCM leadership team to help spread the Gospel and glorify God in the process. A fun fact about me: I can almost say the alphabet backwards faster than I can forwards!
