Digital Reunion Schedule
(All times listed are for the Eastern time zone)
Friday July 17
9-10:30 p.m. “How Well Do You Remember…?” Digital campus tour & scavenger hunt
Kick things off with a virtual trip back to campus, so you can see what has changed and what has stayed the same since graduation. We’ll use Zoom for the video call and the Goosechase app* for the scavenger hunt.
All alumni and current students are invited! Access the Zoom link here.
*If you plan to participate, please download the Goosechase app on your phone or tablet (don’t worry, you don’t need to make an actual account) and join Zoom via a computer (if possible)!
Saturday July 18
5-5:20 p.m. Setting the Vision: BCM at SU's Impact through the Years
In this short series of videos, hear alumni and past staff about the ways BCM helped them grow in their faith. We’re so excited to share these testimonies showcasing how BCM equipped and empowered these alumni to be the church wherever God led them after graduation.
Want to get a head start on watching these videos? Check out the video gallery when it goes LIVE on the website at 12 p.m. Eastern, including a few extra videos that won’t be part of the 5 p.m. session.
5:20-5:30 Living the Vision: Live welcome from Devon Bartholomew
Current campus minister and Baptist chaplain Devon Bartholomew (‘10) will welcome alumni to the live sessions and update everyone on BCM current events. This Zoom session will highlight what Campus Church is up to, the genesis of Christian Outreach as a student organization, and how we’re accomplishing our vision today to empower students to be the church wherever they go.
5:30-6:00 Breakout I: Class year reunions
Reconnect with BCM alumni from similar graduation years in these smaller Zoom events. Enjoy God-honoring conversation, joyful encouragement, and life updates from your friends and classmates—just like you used to have in Hendricks. Each session will be facilitated by a representative from that grouping. The class year groupings and facilitators are:
1998-2005: To be announced
2006-2010: Jeanine Staton
2011-2015: Alyssa O'Brien
2016-2020: To be announced
YES, you are allowed to jump between class years in order to catch alumni in different class years. We recommend that you start the session in your class year grouping, catch up with that group first, then feel free to start exploring the other groups. Who knows who you might run into!
Don’t worry if you run out of time or don’t get to see everyone you wanted to see. You can make plans to all go to the same small group prayer session, message them when we are all in the large group “Keeping the Momentum” session, or come back for the Sunday sessions with Campus Church and the Alumni Social. There are many opportunities to connect cross-class.
6:00-6:30 Breakout II: Small group prayer
Join us as we unite in prayer, talking to the One who brought us together in the first place. In these small Zoom sessions, we’ll take time to praise God together and intercede on behalf of others. Links to each prayer session will be available here.
You’ll be able to choose which session to attend. We ask that for small group prayer, you stay in the same group for the whole session. That will maximize everyone’s ability to focus on the act of prayer, rather than moving between groups. Each group will be facilitated by fellow alumni. We hope this time of prayer is effective and edifying!
6:30-6:45 Keeping the Momentum: More Ways to Stay Connected
Current campus minister and Baptist Chaplain Devon Bartholomew will wrap up this portion of the reunion with a brief message. He’ll share about more opportunities for connecting, other ways you can keep growing alongside fellow alumni, and how you can develop a greater intimacy with the ongoing mission and vision of BCM at SU/ESF.
8:00-9:30 Worship Night
Be transported back to Campus Church with a special worship night hosted by current BCM student members. Join us as we praise God with instruments and song, giving thanks for all the ways He has blessed our ministry throughout the decades.
Sunday July 19
4:00-5:15 p.m. Campus Church: Weekly worship service led by BCM students
You’re invited to join Campus Church’s regularly scheduled Sunday gathering on Zoom. We’ve been meeting all summer studying the letters to the churches in Revelation. Each week, a student leader prepares the message, meets with the campus minister for coaching, and delivers the teaching for Campus Church. Following the 10-15 minutes of teaching time, we break into small groups for discussion. Join us this week for teaching from the letter to Laodicea, delivered by Will (‘23).
5:15-6:15 “Back to the Future” Alumni social hosted by Past Campus Ministers
Stick around after Campus Church for our alumni social Zoom session. We’d love it if you wore your 80’s themed outfits for this event, so don’t be shy about wearing your aviators and crimped hair to church. The social will be hosted by past campus ministers including Mike McQuitty, Michael Dean, and Stephen Cosgrove.
We hope to use some of the time to share specific BCM memories with one another. If you have a photo or object that you’d like to bring along, please do!
