Gift Catalog Giving & Vision Funding

Reach Freshmen

God has used the BCM to sow gospel seeds at OU for 97 years, and we are thankful for how God has moved year after year to help students know, love and glorify God. 

Like every fall, we spend a prodigious amount of time, money, and effort at meeting new students. We believe that to reach the campus we must reach freshmen. At OU, over 90% of freshmen live within 100 yards of the BCM building. 

A new student at college provides one of the most strategic gospel opportunities! 

The first 6 weeks of freshman year are one of the most memorable and life-shaping times people will experience during college. 

You are who you run with. Many students will connect with friends who could influence them toward a path of increased selfishness or insignificant pursuits. Watching students not follow God breaks our hearts, but also motivates us to work hard to help as many students as we can to know, love and glorify God with their lives. 

 

SPECIFIC NEEDS: 

We are having hundreds of students in our building every week, not just at events, but literally hundreds of people study and drink coffee EVERY DAY in our BCM. We are so very grateful to be a safe haven for isolated students during this time. Our new building has ample space to keep students socially-distanced, but no one could have anticipated the need for as many small seating groups as we have need of, or as much expenditure on cleaning supplies as a global pandemic demands. We desire both to keep our students safe and to continue to accommodate as many students as possible.

 

Here are three specific and unique things you can help with: 

 

  1. We need more tables & chairs both inside and outside (covered patio) to provide as much socially-distanced seating as possible.  (Costs to purchase are around $200-500 per item)

  2. We need supplies like disposable masks and cleaning supplies to help negate COVID-19. (Costs have been around $75-100 per week) 

  3. Disinfectant Mobile Fogger: (Cost $500)
