UC Students to participate in KBC Creative Ministries Festival


Williamsburg, Ky. - “There are over 2,000 Southern Baptist Churches in the state of Kentucky alone,” explained University of the Cumberlands’ (UC) Baptist Campus Ministries Director, Dean Whitaker. “Imagine how many lives can be touched if all of them came together with the Kentucky Baptist Convention (KBC) and participated in the Creative Ministries Festival!”

The KBC Creative Ministries Festival is just around corner and the students and staffs at UC are preparing themselves to be blessed by God’s love and what His people have in store for them at this year’s festival. This year, the festival will be held at Cedarmore, one of two Baptist Camps in the state, which is located in Bagdad, Kentucky. This event will start on March 1, 2013 at 5:00pm and continue through March 2, 2013 at 4:00pm. The cost is $40 per person and includes two meals, lodging and transportation. The UC students are excited about the festival and gearing up for Christ.

“This is usually a successful event with an amazing turnout,” Whitaker. “It is state wide and we even have students come from Tennessee and Ohio. It does only last two days but those two days are powerful and have tons of information on how to share the gospel in various and creative ways.”

The Creative Ministries Festival is a time where churches come to lead or participate in workshops in hopes of training and developing skills for the students showing them how to use creative ministries to spread the gospel. The creative ways to share God’s word consist of music, drama, puppets, clowning, interpretive movements and more. When it comes to God, the possibilities are unlimited.

“UC’s drama team will be leading a workshop on interpretive movement during the Creative Ministries Festival,” said UC’s BCM president, Kelsey Day. “The drama team has been quite active and has made a significant difference in students’ lives. They are really good at what they do.”

Located in Williamsburg, Ky., University of the Cumberlands is an institution of regional distinction, which currently offers four undergraduate degrees in more than 40 major fields of study; nine pre-professional programs; twelve graduate degrees, including two doctorate, two specialist and eight master’s degrees; certifications in education; and online programs.
