Lead team


The Baptist Student Union believes in student leadership. Our GTR Lead Team consists of students that want to help students to know Christ and to make Him known through service, evangelism, prayer, and so much more. The BSU ministry is first lead by the discernment of the Holy Spirit, and is then heavily influenced by the student leadership. These students play a critical role in the mission of the BSU.
