Whether you were a member of:
- Ouachita Parish Community College Baptist Student Union
- Northeast Louisiana University Baptist Student Union
- University of Louisiana at Monroe Baptist Collegiate Ministry
You could agree that the BSU/BCM has been instrumental in the spiritual growth and leadership development of generations of students.
The ULM BCM has been one of the leading collegiate ministries in the country for decades. There are many years of memories and many lives changed at that BCM building on University Avenue. Time has given us decades of great stories and years of spiritual growth but has also taken its toll on the BCM facility. One thing that Baptists do well is giving facilities plenty of use, and the current building has given around 50 years of service.
Together we are embarking on a project to establish a ministry facility at ULM that will reach the next generation of college students. We would like to give you the opportunity to be a part of this effort.
The new BCM facility will be built on the existing property at ULM after the original building is removed. The entrance to the building will be brought to the corner of University Avenue and Cameron Street to bring the building closer to the campus. Once students enter the BCM there will be an open lobby area with seating, a study/coffee bar, and a tall open celling. To the left of the entrance will be a game room (so the ping-ponging tradition can continue) and a large meeting room. To the right will be the staff office suite which will give our staff full view of the students coming and going. The center of the building will be the entrance to the multi-purpose room which will be the new home of the worship service and 12:01 lunch program. This room will contain a built in serving line and storage for tables, chairs, and sound equipment. This room will seat 300-400 for worship and 200-300 for dining and will have sound and video capabilities to use for both programs. On the University Ave. side of theBCM will be two floors of apartments housing up to 8 students. This facility will use the existing parking at the back of the BCM and will have additional spaces added near the student housing. This building will be positioned to house the ULM BCM for decades and will be an exciting addition to the campus.
