Freed-Hardeman University will honor a Martin man Nov. 11 during the Henderson school’s Homecoming celebration. Brian Stephens will receive the Service to Community Award at the Homecoming banquet Friday.
Stephens, who graduated from FHU in 1993, is the campus minister at the University of Tennessee Martin. He has worked with the Martin Church of Christ for more than ten years and led mission trips to various places, including Costa Rica. In addition to his work as campus minister, he teaches two Bible classes weekly and preaches at least once each month. He is married to the former Joy Holloway.
Nathan Howard, associate professor of history at UTM said regarding Stephens, “Instead of challenging students only to find a safe haven in the community of other Christians, he encourages and enables them to reach out to others by helping them to experience Christ’s presence in their lives.
