Baptist Campus Ministries eventscomment (0)

August 9, 2012


On Alabama college and university campuses this fall, Baptist Campus Ministries (BCM) will welcome new and returning students with events designed to intentionally engage and involve them in a life-changing ministry experience. BCM is a Great Commission ministry of the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions and local Baptist associations and is made possible by gifts from Alabama Baptist churches through the Cooperative Program. If you have questions about any BCM group or event, please contact the Baptist campus minister for that campus by going to www.thestudenthub.org.
