What to DO!

We'll start out with the most basic and move on to more involved & meaningful activities.  Feel free to be as much or as little involved as you would like.

Hang out at the Building

Hanging OutDid we mention that the BCM building is a great place to spend time before, between, or after classes.  We have a lounge with comfy couches, a library to study in, a kitchen to prepare lunch in (once your tired of eating out), ping pong, pool, and foosball tables, a video game room, wifi access and community computers, a prayer room & vending machines.  The building is generally open M-F 8:00 to 4:00 during the school year.  Many students just park at the BCM Building and walk down to class.

Noonday Lunch

Noonday LunchEvery Wednesday of the school year from 11:30 - 1:00 sweet ladies from local churches bring a home cooked meal for students to enjoy.  Every week is a different church and a different menu.  This is a great time to come for a visit.  There are new first-time visitors nearly every week.  This is a great time of fellowship and also serves as a missions fundraiser.  We ask for a $2.50 donation that goes to support student summer missions.

Fellowship Events

Christmas PartyFrom time to time throughout the year we will have special events like; welcome week cookout, scavenger hunt, Christmas party, Super Bowl party, etc.  Once again the best way to get the details about what is going on is by joining the Facebook Group or by coming by the building regularly.


BandMost years, depending on student leadership, we try to have a regular scheduled time of student-led worship called STAND.  The times & days for STAND Worship, change depending on student schedules.  Most often it has been on Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday in the afternoon.  Students are encouraged to help give leadership to this event if they can lead worship, give a devotional, lead prayer or share a personal testimony.

Small Groups

BibleEvery semester we have a number of small group options.  The schedule varies depending on student leaders and student schedules.  In the past we have had Christian classics reading groups, traditional themed Bible studies, accountability groups, prayer groups, Dave Ramsey financial classes, or book of the Bible study group.  Come by the BCM and sign up for a small group.

Retreats & Conferences

TravelingThere's nothing like a good road trip for Jesus.  Every year we have options for retreats and conferences.  The dates, locations, and themes can change so, once again, you will need to join the Facebook group or drop by the building to get more info.  We will usually have a fall retreat on a weekend in October or November.  We will also usually have a statewide leadership conference in the spring semester most of the time in April.


Joplin Mission Trip

There are numerous opportunities to be involved in missions and mission trips through the BCM.  There are often local mission opportunities available throughout the year.  We also most often offer several group mission trip during the Fall, Christmas, and Spring Breaks.  Finally we offer an extensive summer missions program where you can serve across the country or around the world for up to 10 weeks.  For more info on the summer mission opportunities check out "here."
