Baptist Student Ministry

The BSM (Baptist Student Ministry) is an excellent way to get involved at Howard Payne University. The BSM offers several different ministries for students to be engaged in both on and off campus. Whether you are new to faith or have been following Christ for a long time, the BSM would like to walk alongside you in your relationship with Jesus. From discipleship groups among college peers to outreach and missions, the BSM exists to help college students become disciples of Jesus Christ while they are at school. We provide opportunities for students to serve in leadership roles, grow deeper in their faith, and let that faith be acted out in their daily lives.

Our ministry is divided into three different areas, Discipleship/Prayer, Worship/Church Life, and Missions/Evangelism. All of these areas are equally important to the spiritual makeup of the BSM and to our spiritual lives. Our student leadership team helps to lead each one of our ministries in these three areas.

One of our focal passages of scripture is Acts 1:8 which says “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” That is what we strive to do: be a witness to the God who created us. We are witnesses because we have something to say. We have seen and heard what God is doing. Help us spread that witness.

Missions is a big part of the BSM, whether it be local, national, or international. Typically, we are involved in at least one mission project in the Fall semester, Spring semester, and Summer. Be on the lookout for BSM announcements about upcoming trips and projects!
