“There’s a time and a place for everything and it’s called ‘college.’” Unfortunately, that’s true in many circumstances. College is a time when we stretch our wings and find out what all the world has to offer. Let’s make sure that students still know what Christ has to offer through the various outreaches among college campuses.
Thanks for your interest in college students! We have a tremendous opportunity to reach the 1.2 million college students in Texas. Did you know that current statistics tell us that 70% of students drop out of church when they graduate from high school? We want to reverse that trend. Our mission is to introduce students to Christ and help them grow through BSM (Baptist Student Ministry) and church based college ministry.
We have BSM staff on campuses in Texas who are there to reach the lost and grow the saved. BSM values evangelism, missions, discipleship, leadership development, and church life. BSM Staff also work closely with the churches and associations in their area in order to connect students to churches and churches to students. Find a BSM near you.
