UAM inducts BCM Campus Minister Jeremy Woodall into Sports Hall of Fame

It is impossible to overstate the importance of our Baptist Collegiate Ministries (BCM) on campuses around our state. The microcosm expression of cooperative missions is treasured in the hearts of thousands of current and former collegians who fill our pulpits, serve on the mission field, sit in our pews, teach our classes, lead our Bible studies and raise families in the communities of Arkansas and around the nation. But I was personally reminded of the depth of their impact when one of our very own, Jeremy Woodall, was recognized by the University of Arkansas at Monticello (UAM) athletic department and inducted into the UAM Sports Hall of Fame for the Spirit Award.

Food Connects Churches With Students

Arkansas Baptist Disaster Relief (DR) is known for going into difficult places to serve those in the crisis of disaster. On August 17, a team of DR volunteers from across the state assembled to serve in a different way! In the early hours of the morning volunteers started driving from all over the state headed to the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, making the same trip to campus that over 7,000 incoming freshmen had made just days before. While the freshmen had moved to start life in their new home, Disaster Relief volunteers were mobilizing to make them feel welcome.

BCM Students Reflect on Summer Ministry

Baptist Collegiate Ministry (BCM) students have incredible opportunities during the summer to serve in a variety of ways. As a campus minister, I love when students use a week, month, or entire summer to serve! God honors that time in ways that many students do not expect. Over the summer, students can serve in many different places and in a variety of opportunities. Below are a few examples with their comments about their summer experience.
