When Zach Beasley took on the task of starting a Baptist Campus Ministry at Alabama State University in 2019, he started with one student who showed up for the first Bible study.
“For some reason, I wasn’t discouraged. I was like, ‘God, this means you’re about to do something amazing,” Beasley said.
Two years later, ASU has a thriving BCM, and Beasley also started one this semester at Tuskegee University, another campus that hasn’t had a group in a while.
He did so with the help of student ministry leaders from ASU.
It’s a huge step for multiple reasons, Beasley noted. For one, ASU and Tuskegee are big rivals, so the cooperation and unity between the two schools’ students is not something he takes for granted.
