Brethren Student Movement exists for students attending Bridgewater College and neighboring campuses in the Central Shenandoah Valley in order to:
- Provide fellowship opportunities and build a sense of interdependent community among Brethren students and the larger student body, providing mutual support and accountability within the priesthood of all believers.
- Provide students with opportunities for worship, study, service, and spiritual growth.
- Empower students for leadership on campus and in the larger church, community, and world.
- Foster a connection between students and the larger Church of the Brethren denomination.
- Provide opportunities for students to connect with the faith heritage of the Church of the Brethren.
