Ardmore Baptist College Ministry

WHO WE ARE

Engage, Community, Relationships

College ministry at Ardmore Baptist Church focuses on connecting with students on their terms and meeting them where they are in life. For us, this means meeting them on their campus and supporting them. Our desire is to stay connected to students from the church who are away at school and establish relationships, engage with students, and build community with those students who are in Winston-Salem.
Sunday Morning Experience

Sunday morning Bible study starts at 9:30 a.m. College-aged students who desire Sunday morning Bible study are connected with an adult Bible study group that fits them. We believe that when students and adults connect they are better able to learn from each other, understand one another, and build lasting relationships.

Prayer Partners

We know the transition to college is not an easy one. College is different and challenges students to use skills they may or may not have developed. So we look to stay connected to students through adults who continue to invest in them, though they may be far away. Prayer Partners pray for the student, connect with their parents and support them, send cards and care packages to students, and have some type of contact with them monthly. We believe this helps a student maintain their grounding, while also letting them know that someone is praying for them and supports them.

TRIPS & ACTIVITIES

When students return to Winston-Salem we seek to reconnect and reestablish community through variety of trips and activities. We also want to retain connections with students in town through these activities and adult connections built during the school year.

VIRTUAL BIBLE STUDY

Once a month we will live stream “10 Minute Growth” – a 10 minute conversational Bible study. The Minister with Students will host this time with a different guest each month. They will engage in conversation around a topic or scripture passage and leave you with a couple of questions to think about and a challenge. Each month, once the Instagram live stream is over, it will be posted below. @abcollegews

CONNECTED CAMPUSES

+Forsyth Tech Community College
We seek to support the local community college through providing a hospitality table near the student parking area once a month. In doing so we offer snacks, coffee, and water along with an opportunity to talk and share. The hospitality table wants to share encouragement and support for students and faculty, wherever they may be in life.
+UNC School of the Arts
We support UNCSA through connecting with them via the Listening Post. The Listening Post is a ministry under Cooperative Campus Ministry that weekly checks in with students, asks how things are going and how a student is doing, and provides a calming and non-anxious presence for students.
+Salem College
We connect with Salem College through the Minister of Students being the Baptist Campus Minister through the Baptist Campus Ministry. They provide a bi-weekly listening table that has doughnuts and fruit, and meets students where they are. The BCM also looks to start a weekly or bi-weekly group that wrestles with current events, hot button topics, and faith, while creating a welcoming, respectful, loving, and caring environment for all students whether they profess faith or not.
+Wake Forest University
We connect with Wake Forest University through the Baptist Student Union. In supporting the BSU we seek to support the entire campus. Support for students varies from an ice cream social, to providing food once a month for their weekly bible studies, and being open to opportunities of service together in our city.
