Who We Are

The FSU Baptist Collegiate Ministry is a ministry of the Florida Baptist Convention and is a registered student organization under the Interfaith Council at Florida State University. By God’s grace we have been making disciples on campus since 1925 right beside our local church partners.


Mission & Ministry

The FSU BCM exists to make disciples on the campus of
Florida State University and beyond, right beside the local church.

This mission is accomplished through our Tues@7 weekly meetings, Tribes Bible studies, and a variety of on-campus events. You don’t have to be a Baptist to hang out our Baptist Ministry Center or attend our events. All college students are welcome. The Baptist Ministry Center is a great place to study and connect with other FSU students, and it is open Mondays through Saturdays from 8 am til 11 pm during the Fall and Spring Semesters. Free wifi is available. We are located right next to the UPS Store on the FSU campus. If you have any questions, please let us know.
