The Baptist Collegiate Ministry, on the Roane State, Harriman campus has been an official, recognized organization of the campus since the early 1970's.
Our purpose is to know Christ and make Christ known. We build our relationship with Christ through worship, Bible study, discipleship, fellowship, and local church participation and involvement. We then make Christ known through evangelism, missions, ministry, and enlistment of students in BCM activities.
Our goal is to minister to college students and equip them for their lives away from home. We are a group of students living out the call of scripture. The students come from a variety of backgrounds. Not all are Baptist. Not all are Christian. We welcome everyone who comes into the BCM. Our hope, our prayer, is to create a community that is welcoming and fun, taking seriously its commitment to Christ. We hope to help students mature personally and in their relationship with God and to serve God and his Kingdom by giving students opportunities to serve others.
We're going to Dollywood this Thursday, to celebrate the end of our semester! If you'd like to join us, please let us know! We'll be meeting in Kingston at 9:15 a.m., and carpooling to Pigeon Forge. You are invited!
We will be doing a summer long study of John Piper's book "Don't Waste Your Life." It's a powerful book, and we'll do only one chapter each week and have discussion on it. If you'd like to join us, we have free copies of the book, and we'd love to have you! Don't waste your summer!
