College Campuses

SBTC Collegiate exists to serve over 2,700 affiliated Southern Baptists of Texas Convention Churches. College students make up a small percentage of the population in Texas but we believe that small percentage can make the biggest impact. The college campus is the most strategic mission field in the world. If we can reach Texas college campuses, then we can reach Texas and impact the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Here is our mission:

We are a family of churches making multiplying disciples on the college campuses in Texas.

If a movement is going to happen on college campuses that will last we must make disciples who know it is their goal to multiply. This is what we champion and point our resources towards. We believe in what you’re doing, and we want to help.
