The mission of the UNT BSM is “We Know Him To Make Him Known.” We pray that through involvement with the UNT BSM, a student will grow in their relationship with the Lord and will be equipped to share the Gospel with those they encounter.

Our hope is that when a student graduates from UNT, that they would have had the opportunity to grow in the following ways: 

  • Discipleship: have a desire to grow spiritually and be equipped with the tools to do so (personally and through investing in the spiritual growth of others).
  • Leadership Development: have an understanding of personal gifting and be equipped to serve wherever it is that God may take them.
  • Ambassador of Reconciliation and Multiplication: have a desire for the Gospel to be shared and for disciples to be made in their communities and around the world.
  • Church Involvement: have an understanding of the purpose of the Church and recognize the importance of obediently pursuing Church Membership.
