ABS

The Texas A&M Association of Baptist Students (ABS) is a collegiate youth auxiliary of Churches and local associations of the Baptist Missionary Association (BMA) of America and BMA of Texas.   While ABS is a Baptist student ministry, we welcome students from all backgrounds.

ABS promotes and supports Christian community, church membership, evangelism and spiritual growth among the students of the Texas A&M University and Blinn College through regular worship services, small group Bible studies, retreats, and other activities to allow fellowship and growth among student members. The ABS is most notably recognized as an Aggie's family while away from home. 

ABS is recognized Texas A&M University student organization.

Service

The primary ministry of ABS is to serve students. We believe students can reach other Aggies for Christ and benefit greatly from learning to serve each other as they grow.

We welcome the ideas and leadership of new students. If they desire, students can find ministry opportunities almost immediately. Aggies serve in many areas including elected leadership positions, committees, music, media, Bible study, men's/women's ministry, and small group leaders. 

ABS has at least one service oriented retreat per year. Students are able to plan and participate in that retreat. We also participate in various local service projects like Big Event and assist with activities of local and supporting churches like AWANA, VBS, DNOW, etc.  ABS has been on mission trips to Africa, Mexico, and across Texas. We provide assistance with missionary placement and gathering support for individual missionary trips. Our students have served or are currently serving in domestic missions and internationally in Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Bahamas, Lebanon, Turkey and others areas.
