BCM Campus Minister
Jonathan began serving at the ETSU Baptist Collegiate Ministry (BCM) in November of 2014. His hometown is Columbia, SC where he earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of South Carolina. Jonathan worked for five years in technology and business before surrendering to full time ministry. He earned a master’s degree from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas where he studied theology and counseling. Jonathan spent the next 12 years serving as a student pastor for churches in both Texas and South Carolina. Jonathan was very involved with BCM in college, has served on several BCM boards, and has ministered to students for nearly 2 decades. He is married to the lovely Johanna and they have two beautiful girls, Abigail and Rachel. Come by the BCM anytime and introduce yourself!
Hannah joined the BCM in June of 2016. While she is happy to call East Tennessee “home” now, she grew up on a farm in North Carolina. Hannah earned her Bachelor’s degree from Gardner-Webb University, studying Religion and Missions. She served in various ministry and missions positions before pursuing her Master’s in Intercultural Studies from Wheaton College Graduate School in Illinois. Upon returning to NC, Hannah agreed to an unexpected invitation from a friend to see a play based on a book by C.S. Lewis. Though he still claims it wasn’t a date, the play was the beginning of a sweet romance. Jeremy proposed in April of 2015 and they were married in October. They have two hilarious huskies named Bowser and Peach. Hannah enjoys reading, LOTR, cooking new things, traveling, baking with her hubby, visiting family, talking with people, Saturday morning breakfasts and Sunday afternoon naps.
My name is Raile Childress. I am 23 years old. The lady in this picture is my lovely wife Kelsey. I was involved in the BCM for four years. Two years at Walters State in Morristown and two years at ETSU. I grew so much during my time at these organizations, and I'm so thankful for the opporunity to give back. My prayer is that I will be an encouragement and an example to all the students that God brings to us.
