The purpose of MOSAIC is to support and enhance the academic mission of the college by educating the Bryan community to become more culturally competent and related to the myriad of people, tribes, and nations that compose the kingdom of God.
Scripture tells us that with his blood, Christ has purchased for God people “from every tribe and language and people and nation.” We are also told that the body of Christ is made up of many different parts, but they all form one body. It paints a beautiful picture composed of people of different backgrounds, ethnicities, abilities, gifts, talents, and languages coming together to form the kingdom of God.
A mosaic is like that. We take beautiful pieces of stone or glass that separately may not look like much. But put them all together and they form a beautiful picture.
If anyone says “I love God,” yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God, whom he has not seen. And he has given us this command: Whoever loves God must also love his brother.
1 John 4:20-21

MOSAIC seeks to minister to students with backgrounds and situations that may not be the same as the majority of students at Bryan College. This includes ethnic minority students, commuters, international students, people who are first-generation college students, and those who have transferred to Bryan from other institutions. We want to help form a beautiful MOSAIC community at Bryan.
MOSAIC will minister to particular student groups by promoting activities that will be attractive to those particular groups; meeting with individuals to help with academic, social, or spiritual growth as needed, forming clubs and councils for MOSAIC students; and listening.
MOSAIC is leading the way in engaging under-supported students at Bryan. Some of the events carried out by MOSAIC include:

The gospel has a narrow content but it has a broad scope. Race is a gospel issue. The unity of the church is a gospel issue. We cannot dismiss it by calling on the content of the gospel that gets us to heaven, while we skip over the scope of the gospel which ought to shape how we relate to one another on earth.
