Youth Ministry

Going, making, baptizing and teaching…

Preparing youth to become knowledgeable and committed disciples equipped to accomplish God’s plans and purposes in their lives.


Bethel’s Youth Ministry is an awesome place for youth! Our goal is to shape the lives of our youth educationally, relationally and spiritually. We aim to usher young people age 12-17 into a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and to promote excellence of spirit, mind, and body. We accomplish this by:

  • Focusing on developing disciples to promote evangelism within the community
  • Promoting a seriousness and commitment to learning God’s Word
  • Encouraging youth accountability while increasing the youth’s desire to serve the Lord
