CLEVELAND (BP) — Truett McConnell University (TMU) has announced the appointment of evangelist and longtime Georgia Baptist pastor Bucky Kennedy as campus pastor/Baptist Collegiate Ministries director to begin Spring semester 2020.

“Our TMU family recognized earlier this academic year the incredible need of a campus pastor,” said TMU President Emir Caner. “The position will reach those on campus — staff and students — who need a word of encouragement and spiritual counsel.”

Since 1983, Kennedy has been involved in global, national, state and local ministries from youth ministry to senior church pastor to evangelism and global missions. His involvement with the Southern Baptist Convention afforded him the opportunity to serve on numerous committees and as president of the Georgia Baptist Convention from 2008-2009.

In 2016, Kennedy founded Bucky Kennedy Ministries, an evangelical organization. Kennedy has also served on TMU’s Board of Trustees and spoken numerous times for the university’s weekly chapel service.
