BRYANT, Ark. – North Arkansas College Baptist Collegiate Ministries (BCM) recently teamed up with North Arkansas Baptist Association to address food insecurities by providing a food and personal items pantry for the students at North Arkansas College.
The Northark BCM is also involved with a drug rehab ministry, a ministry providing gift bags to visiting college students, regularly hosts small group and more. Northark BCM Leader Jeff Brasel was one of several small college campus ministers to attend the recent Arkansas Baptist State Convention (ABSC) Community College Winter Workshop in Bryant.
“The scriptures reveal that some of God’s greatest work occurs in the most unlikely places. Most of those who work on our smaller campuses in Arkansas are either volunteers or very part-time, with many serving as pastors, lay leaders, or in co-vocational roles,” ABSC College + Young Leaders Assistant Team Leader Chris Larmoyeux said.
“Due to the partnership and support of local churches and associations, Arkansas Baptists are seeing big impact on these smaller campuses. These often-unseen folks are some of the unsung heroes in God’s harvest field.”
On Friday, the campus ministers discussed the vision, mission and culture of BCM, recapped their fall semesters and fellowshipped together.
On Saturday, Assistant Campus Minister in Fayetteville Thomas Guinee led attendees in a session on equipping. He focused on starting from scratch, Gospel appointments/developing an evangelistic culture, and developing leaders and a leadership team.
Larmoyeux reminded the BCM leaders of the 2024 Lead>Defend apologetics conference scheduled for March 2 at Immanuel Baptist Church in Little Rock. Click here for more information.
