College graduates who were involved in Texas Baptist Student Ministry responded to the Baptist Student Ministry Alumni Response Form indicating the nature of their involvement in Texas BSM, the personal importance they placed on these experiences, and the frequency and level of their current church activity. The researcher examined 26 hypotheses using the chi-square test for independence to look for significance between current church activity and collegiate BSM experiences. Ninety-two percent of the BSMARF respondents reported their current church activity as frequent. Additionally, respondents to the BSMARF reported serving as leaders in their current church at a rate of 60.7 percent. Campus outreach activity and frequency of church activity showed a significant relationship. Other significant relationships surfaced when examining level of church involvement with type of school attended, the importance of personal spiritual formation, and BSM training opportunities.
