Leadership Team Information & Expectations

Thank you for your interest in serving Christ through the BSM at West Texas A&M!

What is the vision of the ministry in 2022-2023?

As a BSM, we desire to see WT students have a saving relationship with Jesus, see the saved discipled, and the discipled sent to the nations.  We have simplified it into three words:

LOVE – We believe that God has strategically put us on the West Texas A&M campus to proclaim the Gospel to those that don’t know Him. We think the best way to love our campus is to proclaim the eternal love of our Savior.

 

LEAD – College is a natural time in which students experience significant growth – academically, relationally, and in maturity.  We also believe that spiritual growth is critical to a student’s experience in college.  We want to lead students to pursue the Lord with all their heart, mind, soul, and strength.  Leaders will model that pursuit of growth and they will challenge their fellow students to go deeper in their sanctification process.

 

LAUNCH – Proclaiming Christ to the nations is a biblical expectation of all believers.  As a BSM this is a priority.  It’s why we take mission projects at Christmas, Spring Break, and during the summer.  It’s also why an international ministry is critical.  Leaders will also participate in the going as well.  We want to be a launching ministry – creating more ministers of the Gospel as they move into their careers, pursue the proclamation of the Gospel to the nations, and lead in their local churches.

 

The BSM staff exists to usher students through these three pillars of our ministry.  We will mentor, train, and equip students to serve Christ.  Student leaders need a humble heart, willingness to serve, and a desire to grow in their faith.
