Timothy Hegerich

Transfer and International Admissions Counselor

Bio

My name is Timothy Hegerich and I am the Transfer Admissions Counselor and International Admissions Counselor here at Bluefield College. I graduated in May of 2008 with my B.A. in Christian Studies from Brewton-Parker College. During my time as a student, I was active in several ministry programs on campus and online through Christian discussion boards and chat programs. After graduation, I used my familiarity with online communication to begin my career in Enrollment Management, joining the Admissions Staff at BPC. I am also an ordained Southern Baptist minister, having served as a Bi-vocational Pastor for more than two years while still working for my alma mater. Through these experiences, I found that my career needed to be in Christian higher education, serving as a guide to lead students into an understanding of how wonderful and important it is to learn about your future career while building your relationship with Christ at the same time. God led my family and I to Bluefield College, an institution that shares my desire to see every student who enrolls in our classes grow in their knowledge of their career and the Lord.
