BCM Expands to Potomac State
In the Spring of 2019, Baptist Campus Ministry extended its outreach to WVU Potomac State College in Keyser, WV. Marissa Earle, a student at Potomac State, was instrumental in making this happen. At the start of 2021, the BCM Board approved the hiring of the first BCM associate at this campus. Marissa's father, Pastor Shannon Earle of the First Baptist Church in Petersburg, now leads this ministry.
With more than 60,000 students studying at universities across West Virginia, it is critical that we continue to find new ways to reach students with the gospel. By expanding to new campuses, this provides us with a great opportunity! What started at Potomac State with one girl with a vision has now resulted in nearly 25 students involved in weekly Bible study.
Do you know other students in West Virginia who are looking to get connected to BCM? Let us know so we can reach out to them. Your support of BCM is what enables us to have this sort of impact.
