Here at Thomas Road Student Ministries we are passionate about developing students to be followers of Christ. That’s why we created Brand New, our environment for students who are interested in learning more about baptism. Jesus gave his followers one last command before he returned to Heaven. “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19-20). Jesus didn’t give his followers an option; once someone is a disciple they are to follow him in the next step of baptism.

In Brand New, students will enjoy breakfast and a conversation on what it means to be a follower of Christ and why we baptize. Students will be encouraged to write their story out and share it with a small group of fellow students and a leader. At the end of Brand New, we set a date for each student to be baptized.

Once  each  semester,  we  host  a  Brand  New  celebration  service  on  a  Wednesday  night  in  the  PowerSource  or  Living  Proof  Room.  Students  who  have  recently completed  Brand  New  are  invited  to  be  baptized  during  this  service.  The  night  also  features  powerful  worship  and  student  video  testimonies.  Students  are  encouraged to  invite  their  family,  friends  and  life  group  to  join  them  as  we  celebrate  this  important  milestone  in  their  lives.
