MEET OUR STAFF
Wayne has been a BSM director in Texas since 1994 and director at Texas State since 2011. He is the father of two amazing daughters and the husband of one incredible wife. His passion is to see the change that God brings in the lives of college students who go “all in” to follow Christ and to see how God influences the world through them. Wayne enjoys reading, playing disc golf, and generally enjoys throwing and catching things. He received his doctorate in 2015 from Hardin-Simmons University, his Masters degree in 1994 from Southwestern Seminary, and his BA in 1989 from Stephen F. Austin. God used the BSM at SFA to alter the course of his life.
Hi! I'm Mark and I am the Mi. I'm from Pflugerville, Texas and I graduated from Texas State with a degree in electrical engineering. I enjoy videogames (specifically Smash Bros), basketball, and I've recently been learning guitar! God's grace saved me during my second year of college. My hope and prayer for you this semester is to be a part of community where people genuinely love you and you can grow closer to God together.
Hello, I'm Kelly Opiela, I received my degree in photography in 1999. This fall I will be celebrating my 22th wedding anniversary to Scott. He is a 2003 graduate from Texas State University. I have two teenagers Cameron (16) and Kendall (14). I live in Wimberley but grew up in Manchaca (South of Austin). I enjoy crafting, hiking, camping, gardening and being with my family. Before BSM I was a Children's Ministry Director in Kyle. I'm blessed to be on my new journey with BSM. I look forward to meeting you and watching your journey with BSM.
