• Feb. 8: Chaplain Richmond Stoglin, ordained United Methodist Elder. He retired from his ministry after being recalled to active duty with the U.S. Marines in 2007. His mission is to restore prison ministry to the mainstream of the church.

• Feb. 15: Baylor Religious Hour Choir, a Baylor organization since 1948. The choir serves as a ministry to Baylor's campus and churches in Texas. They travel throughout the world for annual mission trips. This year's will take place in Nicaragua.
