Ground Zero: Building Extraordinary Black Leaders (Updated)

Ground Zero is a Bible study resource tailored to help plant and grow Black Campus Ministries on your campus. Whether starting with no members or a few, this resource helps prepare participants spiritually and emotionally, while working towards developing a core team ready to respond in mission. 

This study will help your community dig into discipleship areas helpful for leading in a BCM space. They’ll be encouraged to consider the mission field as the Lord’s, but also spend time working on their own hearts.  

The authors designed this curriculum to work in sequence. It is also proven to be most effective when participants make a commitment to complete all the Bible Studies in the series.

What's new: This new release of Ground Zero 2.0 is shorter and aims to engage diverse types of Black students by providing opportunities for deeper communal application and response. Participants will have opportunities to study scripture together, commune with one another, serve together, and respond through activities such as story telling, discussions, and network mapping. 

Coming soon: The updated participants guide is in progress. Links to BCM branded participant scriptures, study questions, and handouts will be available for download late Fall 2023.
