Transform Your World

You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead, they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

Matthew 5:14-16

Committed to our faith

Bluefield University is that town on the hill shining a light for others. We are committed to providing a strong Christian environment, where students engage with faculty and staff who genuinely care for their well-being.

Our faculty and staff strive to create and maintain an environment that reflects our life in Christ. We encourage students to use their unique, God-given gifts and abilities. We seek to foster growth in the areas of spiritual and emotional maturity, interpersonal relationships, and social awareness, coupled with nurturing a vibrant intellectual life.

Spiritual Growth

You’ll find opportunities for spiritual growth everywhere on campus. Our campus ministries, such as Bluefield Campus Ministries (BCM) and Young Life, work with students to help them live out the Great Commission and the Great Commandment. Whether it is by attending weekly chapel services or by joining a small group, students can be a part of a vibrant community of faith.

Mission Opportunities

Each semester, Bluefield University students have the chance to travel abroad or locally for a mission trip. Mission trips are life-changing events and can help you deepen your walk with Christ as you serve others and our Lord. Our mission is to bring students, faculty, and staff to an encounter with Christ; these encounters encourage them to grow, help them minister, and empower them to fulfill their life’s calling. The purpose of campus ministry is to influence the campus community with the power of God’s word.

Bluefield Collegiate Ministries

BCM is a fellowship of University students who are seeking to find and implement God’s purpose for their lives and their world.
