Baptist Collegiate Ministries invites students

Nestled between the Georgia pines and a construction site on North Oak St. is a small white building. This building is home to the VSU branch of the Baptist Collegiate Ministries. The BCM building serves as haven for students who wish to partake in fellowship and fun by playing pool and ping pong, or using the free wi-fi connection that the BCM provides, but the members of the ministry do more than just enjoy their time together.
According to the BCM brochure, “The Baptist Collegiate ministries is a Christ-centered, student-led, church related ministry.” BCM’s goal is to grow students from different backgrounds into fully-developed followers of Jesus Christ.
The BCM reaches out to all students by having weekly Bible studies and lunches at their facility and many other events on campus. Impact is a weekly worship service that the BCM holds every Tuesday at 8 p.m. and Focus Café is a lunch that takes place on Wednesday at noon and is free to newcomers. “These activities are open to everyone.” Anne Eanes, BCM Administrative Assistant, said. “We encourage all of our students to interact with everyone.” You do not have to be Baptist or even a Christian to join the members of the BCM in their activities on- or off-campus.
The BCM not only invest the efforts in the spiritual growth of the VSU community but all over the nation. BCM members have been on mission trips to New Orleans, La. and San Diego, Ca. On these trips students aided in the rebuilding of homes and churches in communities that needed outside help to rehabilitate. BCM members have also been on mission trips to Brazil to minister to and restore the area for families.
Although the BCM is a student-led organization, there are some staff members who are extremely involved in the ministry. Senior Campus Minister Jeff Ford, Associate Campus Minister Clarissa Morrison, and Administrative Assistant Anne Eanes are all dedicated to the students and mission of the BCM.
If anyone wishes to join the BCM or has any questions call 229-242-2071 or visit their website at www.blazerbcm.org. The BCM is located directly behind Palms Dining Hall at 1522 North Oak St.
