My name is Cody Bauer. I'm from Pittsboro, Indiana. I'm in the Teacher Education Program (Middle School History/Bible B.S.). I enjoy learning about the Bible, History, Church History, Text Criticism, Word Studies, Creation, & Theology. My plan for the future is to teach Middle School student's with special needs. I enjoy learning, reading, and hanging out with friends. And as you'll soon find out, I enjoy music tremendously!
Indiana is alright, but Tennessee is a lot better. Tennessee has been able to offer me more than Indiana. Why is that? Well, East Tennessee is pretty much the best place for me to live. I'm blessed to be able to attend this wonderful college, Johnson Bible College. I love the people here. The campus and East Tennessee are wonderful also. I love the mountains. I love the culture of East Tennessee as well. This is one aspect of Tennessee I feel a lot of JBC students don't get the opportunity/or rather have no interest in checking out. They are missing out. Living in Tennessee has allowed me the opportunity to further my career (as well as personal study) in Music, specifically Bluegrass Music (but others as well). I love playing and learning all types of music, but Bluegrass is definitely my favorite and what I spend the most time learning and refining. I play with several Bluegrass bands in the East Tennessee area. Most notably Shadow Ridge. I've also gotten the chance to play with my favorite Bluegrass singer and musician, Darrell Webb, and several times at that! I never thought I'd have the opportunity to play music with him (well not this soon in my career anyways). There's a funny little story about how that came about. This summer I got the opportunity to stay in Tennessee and play music all summer. It was awesome! I had so much fun. I had a paying gig 6 days out of the week all summer. It was a huge blessing. I got to tour several states with one band, play Tunes & Tales for the city of Gatlinburg, do a lot of fill-in gigs with local bands, and play local "tourist grass" with Darrell Webb (when he wasn't touring). It was by far my favorite summer. I plan to do the same thing this summer. I'm really excited! I've also had the opportunity to play in Chapel and various youth retreats with some friends here at JBC.
