In a recent study by Lifeway approximately 70% of students leave church after high school. Many of those polled said the reason they no longer attended church was because they went away to college. There was a disconnect at this point in their life. They need a bridge. We may not be able to change all of the reasons students fall away, but we can do our best to keep students connected to Christ and His church once they leave high school. TexasFreshmen.com was created to help bridge the gap between high school and college. The goal is to connect graduating high school seniors with the BSM at the campus they plan to attend, and help them get to know people before they get to campus. Click here to learn more.
