Ethan Penner:
J. Alvin was an old, starting to get broken down building.

Dr. Andre Broquard:
We walked into J. Alvin really saying, 'this is going to be tough' because we're going to be living in a construction zone.

Dr. Chip Pollard:
But we also knew we needed to have fresh air and new plumbing and better space and higher ceilings and all that's happened there.

Shane Carlson:
It looks a lot cleaner and it smells better. And it's not as dingy and dark as it used to be. But the beauty of it is that nature of J. Alvin hasn't changed a bit.

Dr. Andre Broquard:
We believe we are educators, so J. Alvin meets that role of being a place where students live but are also learning about who they are, who God has created them to be, and where He's leading them.

Ethan Penner:
We decided to start meeting every morning in the Atrium.

Dr. Andre Broquard:
Every morning at 7 o'clock, there's someone reading the scripture.

Shane Carlson:
And then we sing a hymn and we pray and it's nice and simple. But it's a great way to connect the guys all over the dorm.

Ethan Penner:
What we're trying to do is create an authentic community.

Shane Carlson:
Where men come and they just experience God and experience community with other men.
