tv_buzzworthy 10dbMONTICELLO-The University of Arkansas at Monticello has many student organizations for people to join on campus. Students can meet new people and become a part of something. One of the common organizations on campus is the Baptist Collegiate Ministry.

   The BCM is an organization with the goal of giving students the opportunity to grow in their walk with Christ and lead others to a personal relationship with Christ. They achieve this goal by outreach, discipleship, churchmanship and missions.

   The Baptist Collegiate Ministry often gets involved off campus with the First Baptist Church. Members help work in the ministry with the youth, do internships during the summer, help put on the worship services on Sundays, gather clothes for the Hope Place and service projects for Monticello residents.

   The First Baptist Ministry gets involved with the BCM by supporting them financially, helping students move into the dorms, promote their church during orientations, pursuit(contemporary meetings on Sundays) and they have a gym open a couple nights a week in their church for students to play basketball.

   Bruce Venable, the pastor at First Baptist Church, got involved with the Baptist Collegiate Ministry when he was a college student. “Someone told me about it so I checked it out and immediately fell in love with the people and what they were doing,” said Venable.

   Tanner Hill, a member of the BCM said although they are involved with the community they could host more events outside of campus and volunteer for more things to get more recognition off campus.
