The Baltimore-Washington Conference is committed to Campus Ministry so that we identify, develop and multiply world-transforming college students as disciples of Jesus Christ. The Campus Ministry Taskforce ensures that our Conference’s investment in Campus Ministry is maximized. This ministry includes connecting Campus Ministries to the Church at all levels, equipping our boards of directors and local church committees who plan and implement mission and ministry, and monitoring and evaluating the vitality of our Conference’s Campus Ministries.
The only way for us to be able to create good transitions from UMC high schoolers to UMC campus ministries is if churches provide information to us using the College Registry Report(found in your church conference forms). For a strong fall start we request the completion of that report no later than August 1.
STudent Day & Scholarships
Each fall United Methodists demonstrate their commitment to ministry with college students through a variety of means, including United Methodist Student Day during the last weeks in November. On this Special Sunday, churches are asked to take up a special offering to support scholarships and to assist four area campus ministries using this link. Half of the amount collected will go to scholarships and the other half to BWC campus ministry needs not supported by our mission share giving.

The Tiger H.U.B. (Here U Belong)
The Tiger HUB is a United Methodist campus ministry at Towson University. It is a community where people find their place of belonging so that they might journey toward becoming all that God has created them to be so they might be love at TU and beyond.
Belong: The Tiger HUB is a faith community where all people feel like valued (respected, heard and have a voice). Everyone is welcome no matter what. We celebrate and welcome differences while being rooted in the Spirit. We co-create inclusive space for all students, regardless of theological stance, race, nationality, sexual orientation, or gender identity.
Become: By growing in faith, trusting and feeling secure in our God-given identity, and focusing on God’s call on us, we can become agents of change. At the TU Tiger HUB we ask good questions about life and faith rather than claim to have the right answers. Together we support one another in figuring out how to be a better version of ourselves.
Be Love: When we intentionally share and embody love like Jesus, people see and feel God’s love through our being. We multiply impact as we join the work that God is already doing in the world and invite others to come and see for themselves.
Explore Starting A Campus Ministry
We prioritize student-led new ministries in areas we don't have a presence. We also value partners for this work who might be churches, leaders and/or others connected to campus life. If this sounds like you, please contact Rev. Bill Brown, Director of Innovative Evangelism,410-309-3427.
