Our Mission

The mission of the BCM at Vanderbilt Place is to share Christ with students, to disciple students to Christian maturity, to involve students in serve and missions, and to connect students to the local church.


Who we are

We are the Baptist Collegiate Ministry at Vanderbilt Place! We are a student-led Christian  organization located in the heart of Vanderbilt University. But more than just an organization, we are a family of brothers and sisters in Christ.



Where WE are

We are on Greek row on campus (off the road Vanderbilt Place). Directly across from Branscomb there is a building with a wavy roof and a BCM sign out front—that’s us!


Do I have to be Baptist to participate in the BCM?


Can I come by the building anytime?


How do I know if an event is going on?

Not at all! Our students come from a wide variety of backgrounds and denominations. Even if you’ve never been to church before, you are welcome here.


Of course! Our building remains open all day and you are welcome to stop by at any time. We have couch areas, a TV, and several different study spaces. Students often treat the BCM as a second home on campus—come when you want, stay as long as you want, study, or hang out with friends! There is almost always someone in the building at any given time, so drop by and stay a while.
