Baptist Collegiate Ministry (BCM)

Faculty Advisor

Marlin Curnutt

BCM Director

Damon Billings

The BCM is a student center, a campus organization and a ministry to students all in one. We like to think that we help put the community into community college by giving students opportunities to build great friendships as they are challenged to grow in a relationship with God. Every student is welcome at the BCM. If you need a place to take a break between classes with a game, a nap or a snack, it is just the place for you. Or, if you want to find a place to serve on mission trips, worship with other students, and grow as a disciple of Christ it is still the perfect place for you!

Joining the BCM

What Are The Membership Requirements?

The BCM is a student organization open to any and all Walters State students. The only requirement is participation. The BCM is supported by local Baptist churches, but everyone is welcome no matter your denominational or religious background or even no background at all. The BCM is led by a student leadership team that is elected annual. There are additional requirements to be a leadership team member.

How Do You Join?

The most important thing is to just come by the building and meet a few people, fill out an info card and find out when stuff is going on. You can do this anytime during the semester, but why not come by as soon as possible. We have a number of special welcome to campus activities the first week of the semester.

What Do You Do In BCM?

  • Many students hang out at the building throughout the week before, between or after classes.
  • Every Wednesday from 11:30 -1:00 local churches bring home cooked meals for students & staff to enjoy. We ask only a $2.50 donation and the money goes to support student mission trips.
  • Most every semester there are a number of weekly Bible Study and Worship opportunities for students. Times and Days change from semester to semester depending on student schedules.
  • Each year the BCM hosts retreat and conference trips for students. The schedule and specifics of these events change from year to year, however we usually will have a regional discipleship retreat in the Fall and a statewide Leadership conference in the Spring.
  • Each year the BCM also provides students with numerous mission and ministry opportunities. Often these include local ongoing ministry opportunities, group Fall and/or Spring Break mission trips, and opportunities to serve literally around the world during the summer.

Where Are You Located?

The BCM Building is located on the Morristown campus. If you locate the Tennis Courts on campus simply turn up the only road that runs beside them and past the baseball field. The BCM building is the only thing at the end of this road. Simply turn at the tennis courts and we are the only thing at the end of that short road.
