Faith is our foundation, and it is firm.

Your college years should empower you to become the person you were created to be, not only academically and socially, but also spiritually. A distinctly Christian approach to education and to life shapes every part of what we do at UMHB.

For us, that’s about providing you endless opportunities to grow in your faith. To minister. To serve. To experience true community. To own your faith and find your way.

Weekly chapel, regular worship gatherings, and campus groups like Baptist Student Ministries, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Cru for Life, and the Catholic Student Organization are central parts of the UMHB experience. Our students are involved in ministry on campus, in our community, across the nation, and around the world.

The Big Event is a campus-wide missions opportunity for all UMHB students.

“It’s a great chance to get into the community and make an impact,” Jon explains. “This year we took playhouses to families who really needed the help, and all of them were the families of veterans or of deployed soldiers. And like all of our ministries, real attention is paid to actual genuine personal growth. Service, yes, but also making sure you’re genuinely growing in your faith in Christ.”


ONE brings multiple church and campus ministries together for campus-wide worship to express the unity and diversity of the Body of Christ. This creates an environment where students from different churches, denominations, and ministries are welcome to worship and pursue Christ together, and those with questions about faith can seek answers.

But if we are living in the light, as God is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, cleanses us from all sin.
