BGAV College Scholarship Recipient: Tyler Miller

Posted: 5/1/2019 at 11:45am.

Tyler Miller is a member of West Lynchburg Baptist Church in Lynchburg, VA. He is currently pursuing a BS degree in Athletic Training from Bridgewater College.

Tyler is one of the 2018-19 recipients of a BGAV college scholarship.

“I was raised in a Christian home, and I came to be a Christ-follower when I was eight years old. My dad read the story of the conversion of Paul to me and my brother as we sat on his bed. This story helped me realize I was not living a life which was pleasing to the Lord. At that moment, I prayed to accept Jesus Christ as my personal Savior,” Tyler recalled.

Regarding his favorite BGAV ministries, Tyler said, “Naturally, I am interested in Eagle Eyrie, since it is like a second home to me.” (Tyler’s father, Rod, is Director of BGAV’s Eagle Eyrie Baptist Conference Center.) “I have attended many events there, including Centri-Kid and MC2.”

“I am also interested in the Source of Light Orphanage in Haiti. As mentioned already, I have participated in five mission trips to Source of Light, and my life will never be the same because of those experiences. The children there have become family to me, and I hope to return many times in the future.”

Through Cooperative Missions offerings, the Baptist General Association of Virginia (BGAV) provides college scholarships and ministerial education funds for eligible Virginia Baptist students who need aid in financing their education. BGAV Scholarships and Ministerial Education Funds can help students earn an undergraduate degree, pursue undergraduate or graduate education in preparation for vocational ministry, or access training and continuing education opportunities.

Once each month, we are featuring a current-year scholarship recipient on our blog to help our readers get to know these promising students. Please pray for them as they study and seek to discern God’s will for their lives.
