Baptist Student Ministry hosts weekly discovery group

The Baptist Student Ministry will hold discovery groups at 2 p.m. every Tuesday and 11 a.m. Wednesday in the Science and Technology Building outside the Mays Center for Experiential Learning and Community Engagement at Texas A&M University-San Antonio.

The next group is on Nov. 14.

Baptist Student Ministry is a faith-based student organization with chapters across many Texas college campuses.

The discovery groups are 45-minute Bible studies, with an average attendance between five and 13, hosted by college students for college students. 

The meetings are open to people of all faiths or no faith. 

“We hope to see some new faces this semester,” said Jacob Triplett, a member of the Baptist Student Ministry, “It’s not about what we have to say; it’s about what the Bible has to say and we are just here to present it and educate.”

Triplett hosts the Tuesday 2 p.m. discovery group where he is currently breaking down and teaching the book of Galatians in the New Testament.  

“Our goal is to inform and encourage students,” Triplett said.

A&M-San Antonio student Josh Newtin hosts the discovery group at 11 a.m. Thursdays, where he discusses the parables of the New Testament.

Students can reach out to the Baptist Student Ministry through JagSync or by emailing Jacob Triplett at
