The Current is the college ministry at FBC San Marcos. We are a passionate group of college and young adults who believe in the model of Acts 2:42-47 – we are to be devoted to God (Worship & Bible Study), to each other (community groups and fellowship), and to the world (mission).
It is our desire that you would come visit us, get to know us, and join our community to help spread the love of Christ to San Marcos and Texas State University!
CLINT AND MONICA FOLLOWELL
Clint Followell is the Student Minister at FBC. He is very energetic, a lover of all things sports, and a master at growing a beard. His wife Monica assists with the college ministry through the Bible Fellowship Hour class, hosting special events and with discipling college students and young adults. She is also the Minister of Missions and Outreach at FBC. She loves to take students on mission trips. Together they have three children, Brandon, David and Asher.
We have taken trips to places like the Grand Canyon and Colorado. Being that the Followells love adventure, they are always looking and praying for intentional time in God’s awesome creation. In summer of 2024, the next destination is the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, where they will be hosting Wilderness Camp. College students are welcome to join at no cost as camp counselors. Contact them if you are interested in learning more about that experience.
We encourage our college students to get plugged into the life and ministry of the church. Many college students find a place to serve. Serve through our mission ministry, college ministry, music ministry or youth ministry. There are opportunities to work at Parent’s Night Out each month for a little pay (check out the Preschool Ministry page for more information about PNO). Several of our upperclassmen college students find a place to serve in our youth ministry as youth leaders. We ask that college students interested go through our year-long discipleship program first.
We have several special events throughout the year. These events include parties, trips, concerts, game nights, and competitions. Our biggest competition of the year is the Turkey Bowl. It happens right before Thanksgiving Break at the SMA football field. It is a flag football game between the youth ministry and college ministry. College students must have attended 3 college ministry events before being allowed to play. The winner takes home the Turkey Bowl trophy and a year’s worth of bragging rights.
