We get asked a lot a questions about who we are and what we do. This page answers some of the most common ones…but feel free to email us if you have more!
What is the BCM?
The BCM is a student organization at Tennessee Tech University. Our “home” is the BCM building, located on Tech’s Campus. BCM stands for Baptist Collegiate Ministry.
The BCM provides opportunities for spiritual growth, making friends, leadership, service, and missions. We have everything from big events with up to a couple of hundred people, to small groups and one-on-one mentoring, so there is a place that is just right for you!
Do I have to be Baptist?
Absolutely not! The BCM is sponsored by local Southern Baptist churches and is open to all Tech students! So come on by the BCM, everyone is welcome!
Are you a church?
No. We are a ministry supported by dozens of area churches. The BCM encourages all our students to be actively involved in a local church; we never want to take the place of church in anyone’s life. One of our goals is to help you find a church to connect with.
How do I join?
Just start coming! Our events are open to any Tech and other area college students and our group is diverse. Check out our weekly opportunities at Get Involved page.
What kind of things do you do?
We have activities almost every day of the week: large groups, small groups, Bible studies, activities, and parties. We have small groups for committed Christians and for those who are just investigating the Christian faith. Check out our Get Involved page.
What happens at your building?
The TN Tech BCM building is open Monday through Friday for you to chill with friends, study, and play games. We have comfy couches, a ping pong table, a pool table, free wi-fi, a library, and a cabinet full of games. It’s a great place to hang out and meet people. We hope you will come by often!
What if I’m a transfer student?
Lots of transfer and graduate students come to the BCM. So don’t hesitate to get involved! we actually have a Student Leadership team you can apply to serve on.
Do you do missions?
We love missions! Check out our Missions page.
Can I park in your lot?
Yes. Monday through Friday, from 8:00AM- 4:30 PM, parking is limited to students who have a BCM parking decal. For availability, check with Catherine Duncan at the BCM. After 4:30PM and weekends, the parking lot is available to students who are active in the BCM.
