In 2006, after 53 years of service, the Baptist Collegiate Ministries building on the University of Oklahoma campus became unusable for weekly meetings and too costly to repair. Since that time, the ministry has met in various locations on or near campus. In 2014, the OU Board of Regents purchased the BCM property, and the Baptist General Convention of Oklahoma was able to secure property on campus to construct a new building. In 2016, the BGCO contacted BOYDesign to create capital fundraising materials to raise $6.27 million to build the new home for OU BCM. Titled Sowing a Legacy, BOYDesign created the logo, brochure and various campaign materials.
Located within walking distance of student dorms and apartments, the new BCM building will provide easy access to more than 6,000 students. As a multi-use facility, students can participate in activities focused on prayer, Bible study, worship, training, friendship and fun. On campus for nearly 100 years, the new BCM building will provide a strategic base of operations for the next 100.
UPDATE: As of September 2017, almost $6.6 million has been raised, and the goal has been increased to $10.27 million to provide an additional $4 million to establish a permanent endowment fund from which annual earnings can be used to support OU BCM staff members who raise their own support by providing health insurance and retirement.
