Campus Ministries

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.

College Registry

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.

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 Neal Christie, Executive Minister of Connected Engagement, 202-285-4544.
