When students of The Baptist College of Florida (BCF) graduate and launch out into areas of ministry and service, many of them venture into unique vocational ministry positions or proceed to the mission field. Regardless of where the Lord leads them, each and every graduate leaves with a passion to "Change the World Through the Unchanging WordÂ®" whether in a foreign country, in a classroom, behind a pulpit, or at a desk.
BCF Graduate Jerry "Doc" Bentley, a 1993 graduate, is one of the many BCF alumni who have cultivated that passion to make a difference in the world. Bentley has teamed up with two of his best friends, Kevin "Rev Kev" Annas and Anthony "Gladamere" Lockhart, who call themselves the "Church Hoppers." The Church Hoppers travel throughout the United States helping churches by encouraging them and giving them a fresh vision for their ministry and clarifying their processes. Some churches they visit struggle with finances while others contend with decreased attendance and lack of motivation. This business-minded trio helps struggling churches make changes for the better so that they can reach the community around them more effectively.
Because the work that Bentley and his friends are doing is so interesting, the National Geographic Channel will feature the adventures of the Church Hoppers in a new series titled "Church Rescue" that will air on November 11th at 10:00 p.m. EST or 9:00 p.m. CST.
