Providing Specialized Ministry to Mississippi Collegians
Since 1923, Mississippi Baptists have provided a unified witness to the colleges and universities of our state through Baptist Student
Union. BSU strives to provide a balanced program of Christian growth and ministry opportunities for all collegians.
There is a Baptist Student Union presence on more than 30 community college and university campuses across Mississippi. Each is
student-led and the programs are coordinated by seminary-trained Directors.
The Collegiate Ministry Department is interested in supporting church ministries to college students. The department offers help for your
church in a variety of areas such as:
E-mail or call us for assistance with any of the above or if you have a question.
For specific help in the areas of church programs, contact other departments such as:
The Collegiate Ministry Department sponsors major state meetings annually. These meetings are College Student Conference in the fall
and BSU Leadership Conference in the spring. For descriptions and registration information on these events, see our
State Meeting page.
Opportunities such as Summer Missions provide an exciting opportunity for students to exercise their spiritual gifts. Students
involved in BSU programs raise funds each year to send students out to serve across North America and around the world. Churches are also
encouraged to become involved and discover opportunities for their college students to serve.
