About BCM - Shorter University

Shorter University ’s BCM is open to all students regardless of denominational background. The mission of Baptist Collegiate Ministries is for college students to seek God, share the Gospel, and serve others.

BCM is student led, Christ centered and church related. To meet Shorter’s BCM leadership council, click here.

We seek to help students to grow inwardly through such activities as discipleship, family groups, Bible studies and prayer groups. Weekly worship services, community ministries and missions highlight some of the corporate ways students can grow in their faith.

In addition, we strongly encourage students to be actively involved in a local church.
