Tim Kurtz, Assistant Pastor

We are the college ministry of Bull Street Baptist Church, and we are so glad you are here! Our mission is to equip students to know Christ and to tell of his amazing grace. It's our love for Jesus that motivates us to care for students in tangible ways. If you ever need a place to study, do laundry, have a dance party, or bake some cookies, you can find us here!
