college ministry.

College is an exciting time for students as they pursue their dreams and careers with their newfound freedoms. It can also be a challenging time as they learn how to incorporate their faith into the world around them. For most students, this is their first opportunity to make their faith their own. At First Baptist Church Seminole, we desire to reach students with the gospel of Jesus Christ, build them up in their faith, and send them out into the world.

Our College Ministry is run by Gary Canfield

glorieta Collegiate Week

At Collegiate Week, the beautiful mountains of Glorieta, New Mexico, set the stage for a profound encounter with God. Collegiate students and leaders from across the country gather to experience deep teaching and worship with the best in collegiate ministry. Focused small group sessions offer in-depth Bible study, and a variety of recreation and fellowship options help form friendships that extend far beyond the week. Students will leave refreshed and focused on the semester ahead, ready to impact their campuses for Christ.
