Baptist Campus Ministries

This Fall Semester marks the completion of 10 years of Baptist Campus Ministries at Gadsden State, Cherokee. Across these many years, hundreds of individuals have been impacted by this ministry. We are thankful to the staff and administration at Gadsden State for making us a priority on their campus. This is a tremendous and successful ministry that would not be possible without the support of our churches; so, thank you churches! 

We want to thank Joe Hall-our BCM Minister, Susan Hall,
and Deborah Naugher for their tireless efforts
and heart for this great ministry. 

BCM meets each
Weds 10:45-1:00 for lunch and a devotion
and a breakfast once a quarter.
