Third Thursday Lunch

Attending Overview

Join us for Third Thursday!


Baseball is coming to BJU and it brings back alumnus Brent Casteel as the coach of the team. Brent is has arrived on campus and is getting things prepared for the first club season beginning in 2019. Come meet the coach and learn more about the baseball program during this special Campus Insights presentation.

"I am so thankful to be back at my alma mater using baseball as a tool to instill God's Word in the hearts of these young men," Casteel says about the opportunity. "I feel that God has prepared me for this position by allowing me to go through the day-to-day grind of playing at a higher level. As a coach, I have learned to gain an understanding of each individual player to comprehend his needs and desires so I can better serve him. As a pastor, I've learned to come alongside fellow believers and challenge them to seek after truth. My desire is to have a program that seeks God in all decisions from start to finish."

These sports are coming to campus in part because of the involvement of the Bruins Foundation. Learn more about the foundation at Join to day and help Bruins athletics glorify God by promoting unity, pursuing competitive excellence, providing ministry opportunities, and mentoring students.
