BSM Leadership Applications

BSM leadership applications are open for the 2017-2018 school year. If you are a current BSM student, please apply! There are many different areas where you can serve, so please take a look at our online application (goo.gl/DEkP4B) or stop by the BSM and pick up a hard copy. Leadership interviews begin soon after Spring Break, so please get your application in as soon as you can!

The Lowdown on Journey

If you are looking for a Bible study to get connected to, we hope that you will come and check out Journey, Thursday nights at 7pm.  With 9 Freshmen Journey groups and 11 Next Level Journey groups (for sophomores thru grad students), there is a Journey group for you.  Our hope and prayer is that Journey groups will help you engage with Scripture in a refreshing way and help you connect with people who will become friends and maybe eventually feel like family.  It’s really more than just a Bible study, but walking the journey of faith and knowing God more deeply…together.  Don’t delay!  Come and check it out this week!

If you are a sophomore thru grad student and would like to know what the Next Level options are…..check them out here.

If you are a freshman, our Freshman Journey Coordinators Garrett and Claire will help you find a group your first time here.

Howdy!

As a Freshman, I was lucky enough to stumble upon a bible study at the Aggie BSM called Journey. This bible study helped me find identity in my faith and showed me what a Christian community should really look like. Every Thursday at 7 PM, I was discipled and challenged by my new closest friends, who selflessly and consistently invested in my life. Getting plugged into the BSM was one of the biggest blessings in my life and it opened many doors for me to seek and serve the Lord. If you are interested in finding a strong community of believers at A&M, then I would definitely recommend trying out the BSM. We do local and international mission trips, teach English classes for international students, mentor kids, serve free lunch every Wednesday, and put on the occasional midnight pancake breakfast. Our doors are always open and there are plenty of ways to get involved, so please come check it out for yourself!

Thanks and Gig ‘em!
