This video shows our director Mark Jones interviewing student leader and BGCT executive board student representative Jamie Richardson after our BSM spring prayer retreat several months ago. Her story with BSM begins as a freshman where she was intentionally reached out to by BSM students on her campus "table-ing."
Please come alongside us and pray for opportunities to engage with students just like Jose (Video Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yvf3clqFKR0) and challenge them to ask the question: Why do people believe in Jesus? What is this Christianity thing all about?
At Texas A&M International University (TAMIU), students from all over the world are gathered to earn their college education. For many years now, there has been no organized presence of workers on campus sharing the gospel and reaching these students for Christ.
One of the softball players asked me to be recognized as her faculty/staff representative at her game.
One of our staff members was sitting outside our BSM building praying for God to move on the campus. An Indian student named Kavi walked up to the building and started talking with our staff. Kavi said that he was an atheist but recently had a dream where he saw Jesus.
We are so excited to see a shift towards evangelism in our BSM students since the spring break mission trip to Nashville, TN. While in Tennessee, our students had gospel training and practiced sharing every day.
I met Rachel at an outreach table and she seemed to be interested in getting involved with our ministry (I assumed she was already a believer). When we met, it only took a few minutes to realize she had not given her life to Christ yet.
This story is one that many college students in Texas can relate to. Rebekah grew up in a Christian home until her whole family had a bad experience with church and turned away from God. In college, Rebekah met one of our BSM student leaders who invited her to our bible study every week for two years.
The numbers presented above are only a glimpse of how God has been working through our BSM students this past week. These represent only a few of the many places BSM students were sent and able to share the story of Jesus Christ with others and only a small glimpse of God working in and through the lives of college students across the world.
March is an exciting month for BSM students as many of them will be using their week of spring break to go on mission trips across the United States.
I made a new friend who is Muslim and attends our large group Bible study out of curiosity about what we believe. As I was talking to her one day, she explained that she reads the Bible and attends our Bible study to get more information about Jesus. She said she does not know if she is ready to believe in Him yet
Over the last few years, our leadership team culture has been quite the "huddled" community. Our students would show up to events mostly for the social benefit and were rarely willing to step out and share their faith.
I began asking the Lord for a culture shift within our leadership team.
