COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Information
Updated: August 20, 2020
As classes at UK are underway this fall, the BCM has been mindful in following the safety guidelines set forth by UK. All students entering the BCM building will be required to do four things:
Fill out our COVID-19 Safety Check Form (via QR code) posted to the door. This helps us monitor who has been in the building and when, and it helps students hold themselves accountable to safety standards.
Take a temperature check. Students with a temperature of 100.4 or above will not be permitted to enter the BCM building.
Wear a mask.
Additionally, we have a student Safety Team responsible for making sure the BCM is as safe of an environment as possible. If you have more specific questions, please feel free to use the chat feature on our website!

Aligning with UK’s plans to move classes online for the duration of the semester, we will likewise be moving all of our BCM ministry online for the duration of the semester. Keep an eye out for a forthcoming announcement about how you can interact online with the BCM starting next week!

Due to the growing problem around the country with the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are taking every precaution possible to ensure the safety and well-being of the students involved in the Baptist Campus Ministry. Recent events dictate that there have been increased suggestions of precaution from the United States government, Kentucky State government, as well as the University of Kentucky Administration regarding travel as well as social gatherings. Along with that, recent decisions on UK’s campus regarding the movement of classes to an online platform have caused BCM staff to reassess the severity of the situation.
With that being said, we have had to regretfully make the decision to cancel our Spring Break trip Road Rules.
We believe that this is the best decision for the safety of our students and for us to do our part to prevent the spread of the virus. Staff did not make this decision lightly, but through time and prayer decided that this would be the best course of action. We are not called to live foolishly, nor fearfully, but to serve the Lord in all that we do, whether on a mission trip, or in Lexington, KY.
If you are a student who was planning on taking part in Road Rules, please fill out the form below to receive reimbursement. Please be patient with Staff as we work to reimburse our students over the next few weeks.
At this point in time, UK BCM is planning to continue weekly gatherings of Refuel, Elevate, D Groups, and F2 after Spring Break during the 2 weeks of online classes. Please continue to check this page for updates as we make decisions regarding ministry events. As always, we encourage our students to continue to walk in faith as we do ministry in our daily lives.
“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
“So, being affectionately desirous of you, we were ready to share with you not only the gospel of God but also our own selves, because you had become very dear to us.”
⁃1 Thessalonians 2:8
