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 various weeks of the month the student ministry gathers together for different fellowship activities both at the church and throughout the community. Please email Pastor Kevin for details and dates.

The Gathering
Wednesdays ~ 6:15-7:45pm

We also provide a dynamic mid-week large group worship service on Wednesdays called The Gathering from 6:30pm-7:30pm. This is a time where students can worship with their peers while enjoying fellowship together.

The Gathering – Current Series

The Bible presents the Christian life as one lived with purpose and on purpose. Not accidentally stumbling through life but having a vision and a purpose built on the strong foundation of Christ. This is much more difficult than it seems in a world of aimless living. As a ministry, we are going to start embracing a new vision of being a unified and redemptive force for the glory of God. This is a vision that is built on biblical principles and prayerful consideration and one that I think our students can get behind and live out with power.
In order to help in this process, we’re going to be walking through a series I am calling Foundations, focusing on nine attributes of gospel-centered living that I feel God is calling us to walk in. Nine foundational components that must be present in our lives if we are going to bring glory to God the way we’re called to as a ministry. My prayer is that your student will seek to turn to Scripture to answer the foundational questions of who they are, and will grow in what it means to live with purpose for the glory of God.
