Transcript SERVE IT UP Two volunteers serve food at one of the Baptist Student Ministry's weekly luncheons. There was always a wider variety of food offered to the students.

One organization who sought to combat that situation was the Baptist Student Ministry (BSM). The purpose of the BSM was to spread the gospel while providing students with an opportunity to socialize in a safe, fun, moral environment. They held many regular activities as well as some special events in order to achieve that goal. The most popular of the BSM's efforts was the weekly luncheons. These events were free and, in addition to the meal, featured a guest speaker — usually a local minister or a UH alumnus. This was also a good time to find out about upcoming events on the BSM calendar. Another of the BSMs weekly activities was the family groups. These evenings also included a meal, as well as praise and worship music with a live band, and a discussion group or Bible study, depending on the week. While these events were "We try to give the students a place to go where they will feel comfortable." ■ Jimmy Sanders Ibj BSM OFFICERS Left to Right: Joshua Lawrence, Ryan Scrutchin, Kristin Verzwyvelt, Tana White, Joseph Salas, Jimmy Sanders, Craig Butler (director).

Once a month, the group held a coffeehouse night, which was mainly a social event designed to help introduce people to the group and its ideals while showing them a good time. The coffeehouses were the groups biggest outreach, which took place at the BSM building. They included music and entertainment, and generally drew a sizable crowd. The group had many other regular activities to keep the students involved. "Its a great opportunity to serve in the ministry;' said Jimmy Sanders, an executive council member. The group was supported by a variety of local (not exclusively Baptist) churches. Since the group was not a membership organization and was open to anybody, the students knew they would always be welcome, but they had the freedom to come and go as they pleased.
