Youth Groups

We partner with youth pastors in ministry through student conferences and outreach events-encouraging, motivating, and empowering youth in their walk with Christ.

MegaRally

Hundreds of junior and senior high students from all over the Twin Cities gather at Bethel to be encouraged, challenged, and entertained. They hear from great speakers and worship with well-known bands at this high-energy, Christ-centered experience. MegaRally is typically held the first Sunday of November and March from 6-8 p.m.

Check our events listing for an upcoming MegaRally.

Student Discipleship Conferences

We offer weekend discipleship conferences each year for middle and high school students:

  • Ignite is a 24-hour retreat for students in grades 7-9. They come away inspired and equipped to be more effective servant leaders in their churches and schools.
  • Impact is a 24-hour retreat for students in grades 9-12 to spend time studying the Word of God. Students leave informed and inspired to make an impact in their communities, schools, and neighborhoods.

Both conferences feature Greg Speck, an exceptional communicator whose humorous sketches and true-to-life illustrations captivate audiences of all ages. He has a deep understanding of the problems facing today's teens and identifies easily with youth, capturing their imaginations and hearts while helping them understand God's Word.

Presentations are on a 3 or 4-year rotation so students can attend more than once.

Vespers

Our weekly Vespers service on Sunday nights in Benson Great Hall is another opportunity for your youth group. 

Partnerships and Outside Events
