There is a lot to know and do as a BSM staff member, so we've created this site to help answer the most frequently asked questions, provide information about things you need to know, and offer resources for your ministry to college students. This site is designed to help you understand the things that are unique to our work and enable you to serve more effectively in what you do best: ministering to students. Feel free to contact us at 214-828-5250 if you can’t find the answer here (try the search box in the top right first).

GIVING FUEL REMINDER about donor accounts. Please discourage donors from making changes to their gift by creating an account (the system puts a link at the bottom). We've had several who did this (most recently last week) but the changes didn't stick. The best thing is for you or your donor to contact Cindy AND Becky (please email both so that if one is out of the office the other can help). They can update credit card info, change the date the gift charges, change addresses, refund gifts, stop gifts, etc.
Go Now Missions
DEADLINE for Late Discovery Day is today! Who really shined on your mission trip? Are they serving this summer? Challenge them today. Every spot unfilled is a place left without needed help.
For BGCT Employees
TXB TOGETHER QUESTION #2 - Is the gross pay difference of 8% across 26 pay periods an increase in 8% or a decrease in 8%?

Neither. Your annual gross pay amount does not change. What changes is the way it is delivered to you. Before June 1, your annual salary is divided into 24 parts and you receive one part on the 15th and another part on the 30th of each month for 12 months. After June 1, your annual salary will be divided into 26 parts and you will receive one part every two weeks. Payday will be every other Thursday with June 27, 2019 being the first pay check in the new formula. A handy calculator is provided for you so you can check to see your new check amount. You will need to know the amount of your current take home pay to use this calculator. In 03/05/2019’s BSM Connect you received a list of pay dates for the rest of the year. It is attached here for you again.
