Baylor Staff to Participate in Olympic Games Outreach

July 2, 1996

Four members of the Baylor University staff will participate in a chaplaincy ministry this summer at the 26th Olympic Games in Atlanta.

Gaylon Foreman, counselor for student athletes and pastor of Carver Park Baptist Church; Jaffus Hardrick, assistant personnel director and affirmative action officer; David Carter, director of the Bill Daniel Student Center Food Court; and Vincent Carpenter, staff writer in the Office of Public Relations, will participate in an inner city ministry under the direction of Lay Witnesses for Christ International, which is based in Hurst.

The group will minister to and with numerous Olympic athletes during the games. The Atlanta games will be the first in history in which every country in the world will be represented.

Foreman, who will lead the group, said he is thankful for such a tremendous opportunity to reach the world with the Gospel.

"Words cannot express how grateful I am to God for an opportunity such as this," he said.
