Isaiah 41:10 "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."
Brothers and Sisters in Christ or B.A.S.I.C is a non-denominational campus ministry that has been a part of the UMass community since 1993. Our mission is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ to the students on the UMass Amherst campus as well as surrounding areas, like the Five Colleges. We want to see many souls being saved and won over to God's kingdom, and want to help individuals that already have a relationship with Christ foster relationship growth. Our most frequent events include Sunday services twice a month and weekly Bible study and prayer meetings where we can have fellowship as a group and learn more about the word of God. We welcome people of all backgrounds and are open to sharing the Gospel with anyone.
We have two big annual events in the spring semester that we will be fundraising for! The first is our Royal Ball where we showcase the talents of those both on our campus and anyone in the surrounding area willing to participate. These talents include singing, dancing, spoken word, playing an instrument, and more. The event also gives us the chance to dress up, enjoy a catered meal, and spend time with each other for a night of fun! We hope to raise funds for things like food, decorations, and AV equipment. The second event is the UMass Gospel Concert that is a collaboration event with our sister organization, the UMass Gospel Choir. This event features the UMass Gospel Choir and B.A.S.I.C's Worship Team. We also invite a Gospel headlining artist and people from the UMass community or surrounding areas to perform as well. This night offers an opportunity for anyone to come worship, listen to great music, and have fun! We hope to raise funds for a band, AV equipment, instruments, food, and a headlining Gospel artist. These events are open to everyone and are opportunities to be in fellowship with one another while also in the presence of God.
We appreciate any support towards our Minute Fund campaign as we strive to make our events impactful to the UMass community and more. Thank you for taking the time to visit our page and may God bless!
