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 BSM

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 WTAMU campus to proclaim the Gospel to those who 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, during Spring Break, and during the summer.  It’s also why an international ministry is critical.  Leaders will also participate in going on missions.  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, a willingness to serve, and a desire to grow in their faith.

EXPECTATIONS OF LEAD TEAM INDIVIDUALS

  • Being on the BSM Lead Team should take priority over other groups, campus involvement, or social commitments. This doesn’t mean you aren’t involved in other areas, but seek to prioritize the BSM. 

  • You will have “ownership” of your area of ministry.  You are responsible for taking initiative, carrying out the duties of your particular ministry, and enlisting help via Serve Teams.

  • You will be actively involved in a local church.

  • Members of the Lead Team should have the attitude of a learner, portray humility, and embrace accountability.

  • Attend Lead Team Meetings and 806 Worhip weekly on Thursdays. We understand that other things come up but those should be an exception rather than the norm. 

  • Come to at least 1 other weekly ministry to serve our campus (can come to more than 1 of course)

    • Free Lunch On Wednesday (FLOW)

    • Discovery Groups, 

    • On-campus outreach projects- table

  • Prayerfully consider, knowing that we have been called to go by God, going on at least 1 mission trip per year: Spring Break Mission Project, Christmas Mission, GO Now Christmas or Summer trips. We understand conflicts arise but desire for those to be an exception rather than the norm.

  • Leaders are expected to be flexible.

  • Unless otherwise agreed upon, being on the Lead team is a full school year-long commitment.

  • Attend Collegiate week (August 4-8, 2024), and Lead Team Retreats in August and January. These are usually ½ day meetings right around dorm move-in time.
