CBC Student Stories
When CBC Became Home, was published in a recent Edition of the Tower Times, Inside Look section. Written by Tower Times Reporter, Mallory Sullivan
My first encounter with CBC was when I had to tour with Conway Christian because we were taking concurrent classes. I had honestly never given CBC the time of day because most of my family went to UCA, so I figured that’s where I would go, too. As I stepped on campus though, I got this overwhelming feeling of home, the same feeling I got when I was considering transferring to Conway Christian in the tenth grade. As we toured the campus there were so many things that I really liked such as the dorms, the library and just the overall family-like feel that the school had. I also knew about the music program slightly because the CBC Singers perform at Conway Christian’s chapel once a year [and] I always loved hearing them. During that tour I just kind of knew that this was where God wanted me to be [and] I have yet to regret my decision.
At the beginning of my sophomore year, I lost one of my dear friends to a terrible motorcycle accident. His name was Cody Miller [and] he was also a baseball player at CBC. I have never seen a community of students bond and come together over a death of a classmate like when that happened to us. Students were openly praying for each other and they were willing to share some of their stories with other students to help them through their grieving process. The Lord brought me here for more than just baseball. At the beginning of my junior year, the Lord was really putting on my heart to impact people for him. In the past four years God has put me in opportunities to help four of our baseball players come to find Christ. I’ve been able to have a Bible study and disciple some of these guys on the baseball team. And that would never have been if it wasn’t for CBC and the way that all the teachers and faculty exemplify Christ in everything that they do.
My first encounter was truly a God experience. I came down to CBC to visit some high school friends during my freshman year of college. The moment I drove on campus, I actually told my mom that I knew the Lord wanted me to come here. Later that same weekend I was accepted at CBC. I wanted to come here because I knew it represented family and that Christ was the heart of the campus.
