CRITICAL SUCCESS FACTORS

  1. First and foremost, we must model the kind of growing discipleship that we are encouraging in our students. We must continually be students of scripture and our professional skills.
  2. We must communicate regularly and effectively with the vital stakeholders of our ministry.
  3. We must develop a holistic discipleship program in each BCM that embraces students “where they are” as disciples and encourages them to grow further.
  4. We must train this generation of BCM leaders in such a way that they will be healthy and effective church leaders – now and following their graduation.
  5. We must train and give opportunities for students to effectively and energetically share the Gospel – utilizing their ever-deepening discipleship and giftedness to impact lostness on our campus(es).
  6. We must provide students with opportunities for missions and ministry experiences and help them to understand the relationship between growing discipleship and Christian service.
  7. We must resource the churches as they develop church-based collegiate ministries and partner with those church ministries to develop strategies that reach all collegians in our association/town/area.
  8. We must be effective managers and stewards of the financial and building resources entrusted to us by the GBMB, local associations, and churches.

BCM (Baptist Collegiate Ministries)

ABOUT BCM

BCM is a dynamic partnership with the associations and churches of the Georgia Baptist Mission Board to reach university and college students for Jesus Christ.

WHAT WE DO

  • Assisting churches and associations with the development of their ministries with collegians.
  • BCMs provide opportunities throughout the year for students to become aware of churches that are interested in involving and ministering to collegians.
  • Campus ministers are available to assist churches in collegiate ministry training and speaking opportunities.
  • Students (and sometimes student teams) are available who are gifted in music, drama, sign language, DiscipleNow leadership, and other skills. Contact your nearest Campus Minister about these students and teams.
  • Returning student missionaries are an excellent source of programming for Sunday night services, Wednesday evenings, and children’s mission activities.
  • Students are an almost inexhaustible source of energy for associational mission projects and ministries.
  • They also receive valuable experiences in missions that will positively impact the Kingdom of God in the churches they join in the future.
  • For those Baptists who like to cook – college students are an endless source of willing “testers” for your latest recipes. Meals and snacks at BCM events are always a blessing for the students, but also provide a great opportunity for churches to fellowship with students in order to invite them to be a part of their churches on Sundays and Wednesday evenings.
