We are located two blocks east of the Quad at 401 University Blvd, Tuscaloosa, AL 35401.
What steps have been taken / will be taken in light of Covid19?
Your health and safety matters to us! We have been working hard this summer to ensure that everything that we do this fall follows the guidelines of the CDC, state and local governing authorities, the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions, and The University of Alabama. Therefore, our policies will be updated as information changes.
Students are asked not to participate in face to face BCM activities if you have been diagnosed with Covid19, directly exposed to someone who is Covid19 positive (within 6ft without a mask for longer than 15 min), and/or experiencing any symptoms provided by the CDC within the past 14 days even if you initially test negative (unless medically cleared.). Students recovering from Covid19 must receive a negative test before returning to active BCM participation. Students who test positive can email Kim so that she can privately notify those who have been in possible contact to self isolate and monitor systems. Also, students will be asked to notify Kim when released my medical professionals to reengage with campus activities.
Our building has been set up with social distancing in mind. There is one entrance with separate exits. Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the building. High touch surfaces will be cleaned multiple times a day and a thorough cleaning will occur each night. Masks are required unless you are seated eating or drinking. Our study rooms will remain closed for now, but the conference room can be reserved for study groups and meetings. Furniture has been spaced out. One ping pong table is out in the game room, but we ask that you provide your own ping pong paddle and ball (and keep with you). Board games will be available by request and sanitized between uses. Students are asked not to leave personal belongings but to keep items with them at all times.
If we discover that someone has been in our building within 7 days of testing positive for Covid19, we will close immediately and reopen the next morning after a thorough cleaning.

Do I have to be Baptist to attend?
No! While we are Baptist Campus Ministries, we are open to all students regardless of denominational or faith background.

Our main entrance is on the west side of our building. Come in the double glass doors under the black awning.
What do I need to wear?
We are always casual.
What are your beliefs?
We follow the Southern Baptist Convention statement of faith. Full statement can be found HERE.
Is the BCM open during the day?
Yes! Come over in between classes to hang out, play ping pong, watch tv, use our prayer room, and/or study.
How do I join the BCM, and is there a membership fee?
We don't have members, only participants. You participate as your schedule permits and as much (or as little) as you want. There is no fee. In fact, our weekly ministry opportunities are free with the exception of Wednesday Lunch, which is free your first time and only $1 each time after!
How do I get in touch?

Can I park at the BCM?
We have a small parking lot on the west side of our building. Our parking spaces face our building. This is not to be confused with the UA lot adjacent to our property. Follow UA policies when choosing to park in that lot. They do monitor and ticket during the week!
During the week (day) the BCM parking lot is reserved for students who have purchased a parking decal. We are a quick walk from the center of campus!
During the week (evenings) and non-game day weekends the BCM parking lot is open on a first come first serve basis.
During game day weekends the BCM lot must be cleared by 5pm on Fridays before home games and then is reserved for our game day season decal holders only.
