We’re glad you’re here!
Bethel Students is the student ministry at Bethel Baptist Church. It exists to see students become obedient followers of Christ and to live out Matthew 28. Our prayer is to see students come to saving faith in Christ, to pursue their spiritual growth, and as they are going, to make disciples.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the church office for more information, at (757) 867-8082 or by email.
On Sunday mornings our students participate in YBF (Youth Bible Fellowship), which covers 6-12 grade. This small group Bible study time is gender and grade-based, and begins at 9am.
On Sunday evenings our students attend home-based ECHO Groups from 5:45pm-7:15pm. This is a time where students will dig further into and ‘echo’ that morning’s sermon. On select weeks ECHO groups will serve as missions or fellowship time.
We also provide a dynamic mid-week large group worship service on Wednesdays called The Gathering from 6:15pm-7:30pm. This is a time where students can worship with their peers while enjoying fellowship together.
Bethel parents are the most important part of Bethel Students. We believe that you are the primary spiritual champions of your home and student’s lives. Our goal as a student ministry is to come alongside the family and support them in living out Deuteronomy 6:4-9 as best as possible. Below are some helpful links to help you with family discipleship:
We are always on the lookout for godly men and women who are willing to come alongside our students and walk with them through the Word, discipleship, and life. If you are interested in serving our student ministry in this capacity, you must contact the church office. Below are the required leadership guidelines and applications that must be completed. Note: Every person interested in working with our students will go through a background check process.
