RELIGIOUS

 


Baptist Collegiate Ministries (BCM)
The Baptist Collegiate Ministries provides a link between the College and local churches. The organization provides a program of Christian activities that strives to create and maintain high standards of Christian living and service among all students. Fusion is our large group gathering on Monday nights at 7 p.m. We promise you’ll be loved and hear truth.

The Fellowship of Christian Athletes is touching millions of lives... one heart at a time. Since 1954, the FCA has been challenging coaches and athletes on the professional, college, high school, junior high and youth levels to use the powerful medium of athletics to impact the world for Jesus Christ. FCA is the largest Christian sports organization in America. FCA focuses on serving local communities by equipping, empowering and encouraging people to make a difference for Christ.
Each FCA group has a coach who organizes the group. Here at Truett-McConnell College, Cory Baldwin organizes the FCA meetings bi-weekly on campus. Each meeting has a devotional, prayer time, and/or guest speaker. “I hope through FCA we can start a revival in our athletic department that ultimately would lead to a revival through-out the campus” Coach Baldwin says of FCA at TMC.
In FCA many student-athletes attend, but do not think that is all that you will see in an FCA meeting on campus.   Many other students attend as well as faculty and staff. So, if you have not attended a meeting yet, come on out and join! Breakfast is always served complementary.
