Texas Baptists / Missions Team / TXB Missionaries / Tamara Brooks
I was greatly impacted by the Baptist Student Ministry while in college, so much so my mother once commented that I “majored in BSM.” I remember thinking how amazing it would be that could be true. Little did I know that one day I would have the pleasure of serving in BSMs across Oklahoma and Texas. I find it a great honor to walk with students as they take the first step or next step on their faith journey. Many students contact me years later to tell me the impact BSM has had on their entire spiritual life.
Not only are students making major life decisions while in college but I find that many students have had spiritual/faith questions that have been ignored during their pre-college years. Students are eager to dialogue about these spiritual questions – they are simply waiting for a safe place to do so. Many students have told me that I was the first adult willing to spend time listening and dialoging about their spiritual questions and that made all the difference in their spiritual journey.
Of the 1.5 million* college students in Texas in the fall of 2015, nearly half* attended a two-year school. Montgomery County, Texas hosted 14,000* college students in the Fall 2015. Imagine the impact on local students if you partner with Tamara to make Baptist Student Ministry possible in Montgomery County, TX.
