MEGHAN WILLIAMS

Meghan is an alum from both the University of Florida and the BCM, having graduated in 2018 with a degree in history. She served in various leadership roles with the BCM as a student and through this experience felt called into vocational ministry. She has a passion to see students mobilized to reach the nations through a multiplying movement of laborers for Christ. When she is not hanging out with students you can find Meghan curled up with her two kitties, reading a good book, or playing Bananagrams.

Peter graduated from the University of Florida in May 2019. Since then, he was married to his wife Ashton in October 2019 and has been serving at the BCM full-time. He has a deep desire to see college students made into disciples of Christ, sent out, and impact the world. His time in college greatly influenced the way he sees life and ministry, and his desire is that all students would get to have as life-changing of an experience as he had. When not on campus, you can find him at the nearest disc golf course.
