Jul. 15, 2017—The Baptist Collegiate Ministry at Vanderbilt Place is a Christian community where generations of students have found a home during their time at Vanderbilt! The BCM is welcome to all students, regardless of denomination of faith, who wish to grow in their spiritual walk with Christ. We strive to help each other develop into active members of a local church, build trusting relationships in small groups, and worship the Lord together every week.
Jul. 15, 2017—Synesis is Vanderbilt’s journal of Christian thought that seeks to bridge faith and reason. It’s an opportunity for students to explore topics of personal and academic interest in light of both Christian and secular worldviews. Topics have ranged from mental illness to the refugee crisis to chemistry and physics and incorporate students from all walks, ministries, and denominations around campus.
Nov. 21, 2016—Why a bible study, though? Especially to freshman me, who had been to youth group exactly once and never really read the bible, “bible study” sounded scary. Like we were translating Greek or something. Seriously, scary stuff. For some reason, the two words also sounded like a huge commitment. Maybe it was the student part of me reacting at the word “study,” but I really didn’t like the sound of that word. Enter “prayer group.” (Shoutout to Phi Lamb :) thanks, y’all :)).
May. 7, 2014—Those who have known me a while know that I love my birthday an unreasonable amount. I have been known to quiz friends and acquaintances alike throughout the calendar year on the exact date of my birth, until it is drilled into their heads. I took a Megabus from Chicago to Nashville for a 10-day stay just so I could celebrate my birthday with my Vandy buds. April 26th is a HOLIDAY.
