Baptist Collegiate Ministries (BCM)
Baptist Collegiate Ministries (BCM) across South Carolina saw a collective 337 students give their lives to Christ during this past school year. According to Collegiate Ministry Group Director Ken Owens, of the South Carolina Baptist Convention, these 17 ministries (17 different campus BCM groups) have been intentional in their focus on evangelism and outreach; and they are seeing tremendous campus response.
“We are being intentional to share the hope of the gospel with every life on our college campuses. It can be through a planned outreach on campus, equipping students to pray for lostness, or sharing the gospel with students one-on-one,” Owens says.
Pray for 3 lost friends
Reach out and serve at least 2 of them
Share Christ with at least 1 of them
“We have been calling for BCM students to take a 3-2-1 approach to evangelism – to pray specifically for three lost friends, reach out and serve at least two of them in the love of Christ, and then look for ways to share the good news of Jesus with at least one of them. Through that, BCM is seeing more and more students praying and sharing on their campuses,” says Owens.
