The BSM Director must think like a modern missionary concerning the campus, the community and the world. The objective is to develop each believer into a global Christian. The goal is assisting students to discover how God’s Spirit leads the Church in reaching the world for Christ.

Biblical Basis


The Givens

  • Pace Setter - Supporting Go Now Missions as the priority sending tool for Texas BSM. 
  • Spiritual Focus - Praying for the "Laborers for the Harvest". 
  • Equipping - Recruiting and training students to serve locally and globally. Conduct Go Now Missions local interviews in November. 
  • Incarnational – Lead at least one mission trip per BSM staff member.


The Tasks
  • Coordinate a Student Missions’ Strategy in conjunction with the Texas Baptist Student Missions program involving local development, fund raising, committee development and sending/supporting summer and semester missions. Prepare a strategy by the following July Staff Retreat.
  • Develop a Student Missions’ Strategy involving the team approach to 1) determine places of service, 2) decide what students are “called out” to go and 3) implement the mission opportunities. This strategy varies from campus to campus; however, your team should consist of both students and members of the campus/church community. (For example, a local pastor, three students, the Director and one Sunday school teacher.) Plans for this team may start anytime but needs to be fully developed before the fall of the following year.
  • Contact Brenda Sanders to spend time with you and/or students on campus to discuss a mission’s strategy. Enlist Brenda to come to your campus before March.  
  • Participate in a mission trip with other BSM Directors for awareness of mission opportunities and needs within the first three years of ministry.
  • Coordinate one mission trip with students during the first year, including several non-student adults from churches.
  • Attend and participate in the Student Missions Interview Weekend in February.
  • For additional help, see the Local BSM Missions Timeline by Brenda Sanders.pdf and Monthly Skill Area Checklist for New Workers.
