Zach Beasley became a Christian through Campus Outreach when he was a student at Tuskegee University in 2006. Alonzo Brown Jr., who worked on campus through Campus Outreach and discipled Beasley, was a product of Baptist Campus Ministries (BCM) at Alabama State University. And now Beasley is serving students at the same campus that mentored his mentor and hoping to soon serve students at his college alma mater as well.
At the beginning of September Beasley became the Baptist campus minister for Alabama State University (ASU). He’ll start serving first at ASU then hopes to add Tuskegee students to his ministry also.
“I’ll essentially be serving as a missionary to the campuses,” Beasley said. “As a ministry we will pray for students, reach out to them, encourage them and share the gospel with them.”
The goal will be to disciple students through Bible studies and reach the campuses for Christ, he said.
“I’m excited about investing in the students, faculty and staff for the sake of the Kingdom.”
Mike Nuss, director of the office of collegiate and student ministries for the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions, said Beasley knows firsthand the importance of reaching students on this “critical missions field.”
“Alabama Baptists are blessed to have someone with Zach Beasley’s character, passion for reaching students and love for the college campus as our campus minister at Alabama State University,” Nuss said.
Before stepping into his new role Beasley served as youth ministry leader at Strong Tower at Washington Park, Montgomery. (Grace Thornton)
