In April of 2013, Jesse Matherly contacted the Beta Upsilon Chi National Office because he saw the potential for the fraternity to fill a void in the Greek Community at the University of Kentucky with a brotherhood devoted to Jesus Christ. Several members joined the project, including Matthew Williamson, Tyler Parke, Logan Blevins, and the following fall, Adam Davis. In January of 2014, Brian Lee visited campus to help recruit the founding father class. Soon, many diverse men from across campus caught the vision for BYX at UK and the group quickly grew from six to seventeen men. On May 1st of 2014, Jason Hoyt and Jayson Fisher traveled to Lexington to formally initiate the founding fathers as members of the Alpha Mu chapter of Beta Upsilon Chi.
