Baptist Student Ministry - Today’s university campus is not only a microcosm of the changes which have taken place in our society over the last several decades, it is the leading edge of those changes. This means the university campus is one of the most significant mission fields. Step on almost any state or secular campus across our state and the number of those engaged with any church or ministry drops to a stunning 5-10%. The good news is that students are open to the Gospel, if shared with them in the context of relationship. That is what BSM is trying to do, build relationships that can lead these students to the truth of Jesus Christ. With 261,000 students, Houston is our state’s largest university city and both the needs and opportunities on campus are tremendous. Contact Nick Howard.
