We are Mathetes, the College Ministry of Bacon Heights. We may not be the largest or flashiest university ministry in town, but we are real folks trying hard to live an authentic Christian life in a world that often rewards and values other things.
Our ministry is called 'mathetes' and it is our focus and purpose. The Greek word mathetes is translated most often times in the New Testament as 'disciple' but we believe that word has been used so much it has lost its meaning. We prefer the much longer definition of mathetes as being "a disciplined follower of a master." As a group, and as individuals, we take the disciplined part of being a disciple very seriously. We reject casual Christianity and the idea that church attendance is the high water mark of following Jesus. Through daily quiet time, daily reading of His word, and gathering with others chasing after Him, we seek to deepen our spiritual walk and our influence for Him in this world.
Whether you grew up in church, or are just now starting to seek Jesus, we invite you to join us and explore the depths of what a life can be when you seek to be a disciplined follower of the Master.
