The Baptist Collegiate Ministry of NSU wants to fill the campus with the love of God. Every year in September there is a nationwide event called See You At The Pole meant to bring students together in the morning to pray for their school, fellow students, and the nation. See You At The Pole, which is organized by student leaders, is more than just prayer, but a communal time of worship often accompanied by music and food.
“The purpose of this event is for people to see the love of Jesus through unified prayer and worship of God as we come together,” said Summit Murray, worship coordinator. “Inviting anyone everyone to join us. Our goal is to spend serious time praying over our student body here at NSU. But we don’t want to stop there. We would also like to take time to pray for our town, country, and the entire world.”
Every Monday at 8 p.m., the BCM puts on several different events throughout the year including weekly worship and message night called Impact. Students come to get closer to Christ and friends that have the same beliefs, according to Ashley Dixon, a leadership member.
“I want other people to see that there is hope in praying because of the gospel,” said Lauren Kuykendall, event coordinator, “Through all of this, I want to personally experience God and I want others to experience him as well. This also provides a time for students to open up and share what God is doing in their life with other students.”
Although the BCM is based on Christian beliefs, students are welcome to go and spend time with fellow students when there are events taking place. Most of the time, students who attend hang out at the BCM, playing games, working on homework, or just relaxing.
“The BCM is a community of brothers and sisters who love meeting people and welcoming them to join us in whatever we are doing,” said Murray. “We want students to know that the BCM is a great place to make life-long connections, hear life-changing truths, and, if nothing else, a great place to chill at.”
See You At The Pole starts at 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 25 at Second Century Square. For more information about BCM, call Bryce Stafford, BCM director, (918) 456-6921 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
