The Missionary Baptist Student Fellowship (MBSF) is the college ministry of Grace Baptist Church in Jonesboro, Arkansas.
College is where many Christians first have their faith tested. Studies have shown that 8 out of 10 Christian students will abandon their faith during their college years. Many do so as freshmen.
Our desire is to offer a place were students can come and feel welcomed, come to know Jesus as Savior, grow in their faith, and be encouraged to live their lives for the Lord.
Students often ask if they have to be Missionary Baptist to attend. The answer is no. You do not even have to be a Christian. The hope is the student will become one by putting their faith in Jesus Christ.

"I have been a part of MBSF since the beginning of my freshman year. I went because they made contact with me before coming to A-State and seemed like a welcoming group. After a short amount of time, I knew that to be true! I consider the MBSF group a home away from home now. I love being a part of the worship team and look forward to girls' Bible study group each week!"
