Baptist Collegiate Fellowship (BCF)
BCF is a student faith community. We shape our personal lives and life together around loving God and loving people. We believe that the God we meet in Jesus invites us to do this through serving the campus and the world, gathering together to study and celebrate, growing together in a sense of belonging, and sharing our faith in conversation and lifestyle. As followers of Jesus, we understand that living life and having faith is a journey. We welcome anyone, from anywhere, to join us as friends, share common concerns, achieve academic goals and face social challenges together. The way of Jesus is the way of community. Our sincere hope is that BCF becomes that community for you.
