Please Pray for our TN Baptist Collegiate Specialist
We have an outstanding group of collegiate specialists who are passionate about reaching college students for Christ. Pleas pray as they plan and prepare for the new school year. It won’t be long before another semester begins!
Please pray for students as they go back to their campuses and begin a new semester! Pray for those students who are considering serving this summer as summer missionaries
ETSU BCM Outreach
One of the greatest moments from this semester was seeing
these two students praying with a lost friend on campus. One
of our primary goals at the Baptist Collegiate Ministry is serving
the campus. Our students have been building relationships,
reaching out to students, giving spiritual surveys, and
evangelizing all over the campus. The BCM exists to reach
students for Christ, disciple students, build leaders for the
Kingdom, and mobilize students on mission around the world.
We can see all of these unfolding in this picture. Please pray
for our students as they continue to take The Gospel out to the
campus. Our students are truly taking The Light out to a dark
world. The BCM roots continue to go deep and we are
beginning to branch out in more ways than ever before.
Please pray for the BCM at Cleveland State and Lee University as they welcome students to campus.

ETSU BCM Apologetics Series
Dr. Alan White who is a graduate of UT wit ha BS in Chemistry and has a PhD in organic chemistry from Harvard University. He came to the ETSU BCM and led a three-week apologetic series entitled “Science vs. the Bible”. We had about 70 in attendance. It was our largest attended worship service so far! Students want to be able to defend their faith!
Engage 24 is a 24 hour period when college students will make a coordinated effort to engage their campuses with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Our desire is to see every believing college student share the Gospel with one person that day. Please pray for these students as they share their faith – some for the first time!
