What is Student Ministries at Bethel?

The student ministry at Bethel seeks to be simply known for loving Jesus. We have a vision to be a grace-filled community known for making disciples who love God passionately, love others intentionally, and serve the world sacrificially. We aim to do this by partnering with parents and equipping students.
