    Trexler was also in campus ministry at Gardner-Webb University, Memorial Baptist Church in Buies Creek and Eastern Kentucky University.
     
    He is a graduate of Gardner-Webb University and Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Rick’s wife, Joy, is a middle school guidance counselor in Wake County.
     
    Standing in as interim for Trexler, Jonathan Yarboro is the western region consultant for collegiate partnerships at the BSC.
     
    He helps churches engage college campuses and make disciples among those who are often overlooked.
     
    Yarboro said, “Tom Knight, Evan Blackerby, Sammy Joo and I all love Rick very much. We all have a great deal of respect for him, have learned from him and admire his selfless ministry to college students for 40 years.
     
    “In leading the team during this interim period, my goal is to continue building a strong collaborative team of consultants who are proactively helping churches make disciples on every single collegiate community in N.C. There are 591,000 college students in N.C., and if we are going to reach them it’s imperative that we move toward a reality of having no campus left without a gospel presence.”

I am saddened to hear of the exit of Rick Trexler from the BSCNC. Rick is a great Christian friend and brother. I am thankful for his work among college students and churches across our state. I know the Lord will continue to use him, and I certainly wish him all the best. Thanks Rick for your service.
