Parents & Family
Going to OU is a big a step for you & your loved one.
It is our pleasure to have your loved one involved with OU BCM. In today's world anxiety can emerge as you launch your kids into this new phase of life.
College is a time when students face questions more life shaping than any classroom exams. Students will face questions about future career paths, who to marry, where to live, etc. At college they start to determine and own their personal priorities and how life should be lived. Many begin to figure out what it means to walk with God as an adult. Like you, I want my children to learn to truly live, and not just learn how to make a living. That is where the BCM fits in.
OUBCM is an officially recognized student organization with the focus of inviting students to know, love and glorify God.
What does that look like at OU?
Paradigm Bible Study is our weekly BCM large group focused on shaping beliefs, values and life change.
Freshman Challenge is our weekly night dedicated to help Freshmen find purpose and a place to belong.
Village Life are smaller groups that meet throughout the week. Villages help students examine their character and lifestyle in light of God's Word surrounded by a loving group of friends.
We promote intentional life-on-life coaching, mentor & discipleship relationships with staff and upperclassmen leaders. These relationships focus on helping students understand the Bible, apply it to their lives, communicate their faith, build healthy relationships and grow in knowledge, character, vision and skills.
Retreats & Conferences and other experiences allow students can get away, focus on their relationship with God, and build lasting memories with friends.
BCM is not a church, but we do serve churches and work hard to help students join & serve in a local church.
Like you, we desire for your child to become all that they can be. May God bless you in your parenting responsibilities and thanks again for the privilege of working with your son or daughter.
