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.
