Baptist Student Ministries
The BSM is a religious organization for students of all denominations that sponsors student missionaries, mission trips,
Bible studies, and events on campus.
The purpose of Dallas Baptist University's Ministry Fellowship is to encourage and equip DBU students who are
studying for and/or are involved in Christian ministry by providing opportunities for discussion, fellowship, networking, and service.
Our Calling exists to glorify God by leading homeless people to Christ and stabilizing broken lives as they
begin God honoring lifestyles through servant leadership.
Ratio Christi (Latin for 'The Reason of Christ') is a global movement that equips University students and faculty to give historical, philosophical, and scientific reasons for following Jesus Christ. Bringing together faith and reason to establish the intellectual voice of Christ in the University, Ratio Christi is planting student-led apologetics clubs at Universities around the world. Students, engaged in the battle for the mind, learn to defend God's existence, the reliability of the Bible, and the fact of Christ's resurrection. We seek a Renaissance of Christian Thinking in the University.
Our chapter of Ratio Christi upholds the mission statement of the national organization as stated above and hopes to bring its passion for apologetics to the students of Dallas Baptist University. We hope to equip students for any questions or discussions that might come their way and teach them to defend the gospel in a loving manner. Our goal is to deepen the roots of our faith that we might gain a better understanding of our creator. We want to create a community that will encourage students to seek God's truth while "being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you" (1 Peter 3:15).
Our meetings consist of guest speakers, public debates, and student-led discussions. We meet every Tuesday night from 8:00 p.m.-9:30 p.m. in room 111A of the International Center.
The Call is an organization that exists to train and equip students for their leadership in the Church. By giving them a forum in which to practice and learn about preaching and general ministry, students will grow in their pastoral and practical theology. At the end of each semester, a public event is held for the campus to come and join in what we are doing and support our membership.
