Why We Serve?

We believe we were created to make a difference. When we choose to serve, the impact of that service changes lives. Whether you serve on a ministry team in our church, in our community, or around the world, your investment in the lives of others makes you a part of their story forever. It takes a lot of volunteers to move ministry forward, and there’s a place for you. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions and would like to get involved in any of these ministries!

Serving the Church

Partnering with a ministry team within the church allows you to make a difference in the lives of others at BGCC and in our community. It’s also a great way to meet people who share the same interests as you do. Service in the church could include being on the worship team, taking care of the kids at Kids Place, handling technology, and more! Our needs are as diverse as the people who attend our services. All that to say, there’s a place for you to serve in the church.

Serving the Community

Being a church that loves our neighbors means investing our time and resources in our community. A few of the local organizations that we’re passionate about are listed below.

Room in the Inn

Room in the Inn is a partnership between the Homeless and Housing Coalition of South Central Kentucky, HOTEL INC, and local churches. The goal of this ministry is to meet the needs of the homeless in our community and connect them with resources to help them transition out of homelessness. BGCC is involved in many facets of this ministry and is especially passionate about hosting our homeless friends on Friday nights during the winter season.

Meals, Inc.

MEALS INC unites local churches in the mission of preparing, packaging, and delivering hot meals to feed the hungry in our community. A network of churches serves on a rotational basis to meet this need each weekend.


LOCK (Loving Our Community’s Kids) is a ministry of BGCC that partners with the Family Resource Center at Bristow Elementary. Throughout the year, LOCK provides school supplies, Christmas gifts, coats, social activities, and mentoring relationships for kids.


CSF is a campus ministry that exists to serve college students during their time at Western Kentucky University. It serves as a “home away from home” for these students. Here, they can find a Christ-centered community, ask the tough questions about life and faith, and grow deeper in their relationship with Jesus. They have a weekly worship service and many fun club meetings and activities throughout the week for students.

Hotel Inc.

HOTEL INC is an organization that prioritizes solutions to the affordable housing crisis and homelessness, something that many in our Bowling Green community face. Its mission is to offer pathways to stable housing and community resources, to build relationships, provide quality food, and serve its neighbors. They invite financial institutions, developers, builders, property managers, and everyday citizens to work alongside agencies like them to address real barriers to flourishing in our community.

Serving the World

While we can’t always directly impact our neighbors across the globe, we can indirectly support them through our financial contributions to organizations that God has positioned to meet their needs. A portion of every donation given to BGCC is donated to these strategic partners, including Northwest Haiti Christian Mission and the White Mills camp.
