BCM defines “missions” as ministry outside of the church both locally and internationally. Missions are a crucial aspect to the discipleship of college students.
Now is the time to go, or stay, and live the gospel in a radical way. You can make a difference wherever you are, but here are a few ideas of how we want to help:
We strive to give students many opportunities to grow in their faith and glorify God through missions. These opportunities include children’s and youth ministry, service projects, hurricane/natural-disaster aid, soup kitchens/homeless shelters, construction-projects, orphan care, evangelism (sharing God’s love with others), discipleship (mentoring others in their walk with God), etc.

Every Spring semester we offer a Missions Trip during Spring break. Typically we stay within the United States for this trip. Here’s what we’ve been up to so far:
2011: Dallas, TX
Students helped rebuild a “half-way house” ministry apartment complex. They also provided a week-long children’s ministry for children in the inner city.
2012: Pearl, Mississippi
Students offered children a fun learning environment (similar to VBS) in which to learn about Jesus. We also enjoyed in depth training to share the story of God’s love. Other students participated in a Basketball ministry and street evangelism.
2013: Kent & Toledo, Ohio
Each day was a new opportunity to explore a new campus and a new way to share the truth of Jesus. We discovered different styles of college ministry and received great encouragement and training to implement back home.
We will be returning to Dallas, Texas, to serve in the inner city. Joining with other BCM’s from across Wyoming, we hope to impact the heart of Texas with the love of Jesus. This trip will be a low cost adventure of selfless giving for any student who wishes to attend. Sign up now by visiting BCM on Thursday night or emailing BCMofSC@gmail.com.
We are committed to finding tangible ways for BCM students to experience being the “hands and feet” of Jesus. (1 Corinthians 12:12) On occasion, we have the opportunity to send students, or facilitate trips, to other countries.
In June, 2012, we were blessed to visit South Africa. There we helped with orphan care for a month at a Christian baby house in Johannesburg.
Christmas 2013, we are privileged to send at least 1 student to East Asia during the Christmas season to share the gospel.
We are always open to new ideas from students passionate to share their abilities and heart with others. So if you have an idea for a local ministry or a cause we can serve, let us know. Perhaps you have a talent, experience, or ability you want to share with others to the glory of God… we want to resource you! Our goal is to help equip you for the good works God has prepared for you (Ephesians 2:10).
