In the hope of nurturing the spirituality of all Saint Louis University students, campus ministry works with religious leaders and ministers of different faiths around the St. Louis area.
Affiliate ministers are an integral part of the life of the University and work together with campus ministry to provide opportunities for spiritual, emotional and moral development for all of our SLU students. They sign a covenant with the University and are able to host meetings and meet with students on campus. Feel free to contact any of our affiliates directly.

Rev. Drew Phillips Minister
West Side Missionary Baptist Church
We believe people were not created to do life alone. WSMBC is a place where you can belong.

Through small groups and other social activities, we teach God's word in a relaxed environment that encourages interaction and spiritual growth. Our ministry seeks to provide students with three things: (1) a place to connect with one another, (2) a place to support one other, and (3) a place to grow, flourish, and become all that God has called us to be. Students are invited to join us for worship at 10:15am each Sunday in person or online.
