Baptist and Reflector
CHATTANOOGA — A group of Tennessee Baptist volunteers worked hard over the summer months to help transform the Baptist Collegiate Ministry building at the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga.
Mark LeMay, properties management specialist for the Tennessee Baptist Mission Board, and a five-member team from Red Bank Baptist Church in Chattanooga tore out a 25-ton fireplace that was hindering the work of the BCM due to poor space allocation, LeMay said.
The Red Bank volunteers (Doyle Pittman, Chuck Young, Ricky Rector, John Klein and Paula Sanderson) worked three days in hot, muggy conditions to tear out the chimney and fireplace. Afterwards, four volunteers (Robbie McGriff, Ronny Sandlin, David Allen and Hu Morris) from Parkway Baptist Church, Goodlettsville, and Long Hollow Baptist Church, Hendersonville, helped clean out the debris and pour a concrete floor which added about 500 square feet of usable ministry space, LeMay noted.
