Mobile Baptist Association

Please include the news and opportunities presented here in your bulletins, church newsletters, or on your bulletin boards.





Bro. Charles Gibbs, pastor at West Mobile Baptist Church for 24 years is retiring from active pastoral ministry to become director at Abbie Lane Christian Retreat Center for ministers (Louisiana). His last Sunday is next Sunday, August 11. Area ministers are invited to an afternoon service at WMBC that follows a covered dish lunch. The lunch will start about noon, following the 10:30 a.m. worship service. (If you can make it in time for lunch, you are welcome.) There is no set time for the service, it will begin when people have finished eating.


The fall semester is quickly approaching on our college campuses in Mobile County. Baptist Campus Ministries exists as a missionary extension of our Baptist Churches to reach, grow and send collegians and to help our churches do the same. We believe that every Mobile Baptist Association Church can have a ministry to collegians, whether that is 1 or 100 students.

We have several opportunities coming up in the next month to help your church connect to collegians and the college campus. Baptist Campus Ministries invites you all to participate in these connection events, send representatives if possible, and strategically plan how you will engage collegians this year. I would like to highlight a few events that I think will be beneficial to you. Make sure to click on the link below to see a complete list of opportunities and to RSVP to the connection opportunities you all will be able to participate in.

On Tuesday, August 13 at 7:00 p.m., BCM will host a Collegiate Workers Dinner & Prayerwalk. Do you have collegiate ministry workers in your congregation that need to be encouraged in their ministry? Do you have Sunday School teachers, volunteers of staff members assigned to focus their work among collegians? Are you a youth or college minister trying to start ministry to college students? This dinner is for them and for you! We want to encourage you as the semester begins, help you catch a God-given vision for reaching collegians, and be inspired to rely upon the Spirit in this ministry endeavor. Please follow the link provided below to RSVP as soon as is possible.

On Sunday, August 18 at 8:30 a.m., BCM will host its annual New Student Waffle Breakfast. Our goal with this Breakfast is to get collegians out of their beds and residence halls on their first Sunday on campus and help them meet new friends from our local churches. The breakfast will conclude by 9:45 a.m. so that the students can then visit one of our local churches. Would you all send a few representatives to meet students and eat free waffles with them? Please RSVP at the link provided below.

Our Annual Church & Campus Connection Cookout is on Tuesday, September 3 at 7 p.m. Our various local churches will send representatives, setting up displays, meeting new students, and sharing about their congregations. You are invited to send a team. We will provide the dinner, the space and the tables; you just bring some church information for a tabletop display. You may also RSVP quickly at the link provided below.

You can connect many other ways with collegians in the next month through our BCM ministry. We have ministry opportunities to students from multiple campuses planned and would love to have your involvement. PLEASE check out the link provided to find a comprehensive link of all the opportunities and to RSVP for the things your congregation would like to help with in the next month.

We need to hear from you! We can serve you better and help you be connected to collegians more strategically if we know you all would like to participate in these various opportunities. This survey is short and you will be able to complete it in just a few minutes. Let us partner with you to reach collegians.


Baptist Campus Ministries exists to reach, grow and send collegians and to help our churches do the same. We are here to help you, support you, consult with you, strategize with you and partner with you.

Let's take the Gospel to the campus together!
