Sabbath Rest

It’s no secret that we have trouble slowing down to rest these days. For those of us who didn’t have jobs essential to being in person during the COVID-19 pandemic, it seems like a lifetime ago that we were staying home, moving slow, and finding some much-needed rest from the hustle and bustle of life.

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.

Initial contact crucial to college ministry

In just under a month students will be flooding back to our universities and colleges across Arkansas as they begin a new semester or start their college journey. Baptist Collegiate Ministry (BCM) leaders across our state have worked over the summer to ensure that many of these students, especially our freshmen, have received an individual contact from us as directors, or from one of our student leaders. Why is it so important for us to make these contacts with these freshmen?

5 Key strategies to engage internationals around you

Arkansas is quickly becoming home for more and more internationals. The nations are no longer in a difficult geographical location to reach, they are on our college campuses, in our neighborhoods, at our jobs, and in our churches. We can no longer make ‘distance’ our excuse for not reaching them. As Paul said, “I am obligated to both Jews and Greeks.”
