Take your first step or next step on your faith journey with BSM this semester.
Below you'll find the answer to some of our most Frequently Asked Questions. Feel Free to email us if you have more.
What is BSM?
BSM stands for Baptist Student Ministry. BSM Montgomery exists to introduce & aide students @ LoneStar & SHSU-TW into a deeper friendship with God. Rather it's for the very first time if a student already has a friendship with God (through Jesus) we want each student to have a DEEPER friendship with God having been part of BSM Montgomery.
Do I have to be Baptist to attend?
Absolutely not! The name “Baptist” simply indicates something about our heritage as well as the individuals and churches providing financial support for this ministry. So come on by the BSM, everyone is welcome!
How do I join BSM?
BSM is FREE - Just start coming! We do NOT have a membership fee, we just have events and people come. Our events are open to any LoneStar & SHSU-TW students.
Are you a church?
No. We are a ministry supported by local churches. BSM encourages all our students to be actively involved in a local church; we never want to take the place of church in anyone’s life. We are supported by Texas Baptist and Montgomery County churches. If you're looking for a church, here's a list that of our local partnering churches.

I've got questions about the bible. Any suggestions?
First, join an EXPLORE GOD GROUP. BSM staff & 2-6 students meet weekly to discuss spiritual / faith related questions. Second, join the BSM BIBLE PROJECT where we challenge you to read the Bible & discuss it online with fellow BSMer's. OR the YouVersion Bible App is a great place to start. (Pick a reading plan, set a daily reminder, and start reading.}
How can I join the BSM Leadership Team?
The BSM Leaders Team is a group of students who LEAD what happens @ BSM. Leaders meet the first Thursday of each month. We plan one event on campus each month: September, October, November, February, March, & April. These events have included: See You @ the Pole, Jesus Love YOU Valentines, Questions on Campus (a promo for Ask the Pastor), Spikeball Tournament, ect...
How can I get more involved?
The BEST way to get involved is to just start coming. We suggest you come to FREE LUNCH or join a weekly EXPLORE GOD GROUP. Join BSM text alerts (see link @ the bottom of this page) & receive one text a week so you can know what's happening @ BSM that week.
Do you do Missions?
We love missions! One of the things we do together is SERVE the World Around Us. We serve our campus, our community, and our world. We also encourage our students to serve across Texas & around the world through Go Now Missions.
Is BSM Montgomery for students @ SHSU or LoneStar College?
Both! No matter which local Montgomery college campus you attend, BSM Montgomery is for you!
