52 Sundays . Houston Baptist BSM
When new students begin their freshman year at college, they are faced with deciding what type of young adult they want to be. That makes orientation the perfect time to present the Gospel.
The Baptist Student Ministry at Houston Baptist University assists with the evening worship service held at each of the four annual student orientations. During this worship service, the BSM is given the opportunity to share the love of Christ with every ne...w student setting foot on campus.
Last year, 83 future freshmen gave their lives to Christ. In 2016, the number was 70.
“Our Associate Chaplain, Saleim Kahleh, spoke and did the gospel presentations,” said former BSM Director Mark Warrington. “Several of our BSM leadership team students personally followed up with each of the students who had given their lives to Christ, to answer any questions they might have,
and then get them connected to discipleship, church, and our Bible Studies that kick up in the fall.”
He added that the goal is to see students grow, both academically and spiritually. “The university strives to be a place where Athens meets Jerusalem. Thus, we have this wonderful opportunity to encourage and equip our students in both their faith and academic pursuits.”
When we give to the Cooperative Program as Texas Baptists, we support the efforts of Baptist Student Ministries like Houston Baptist’s BSM, as they seek to lead people to Christ and disciple believers.
Let’s pray for the students involved in Houston Baptist University BSM and other BSMs throughout Texas, that God would bless their service and use them to help many young people grow in knowledge of Him.
