Christian Formation

A student raises their hands in worship at weekly Chapel.

Enter into a genuine community that’s striving to discover what it means to live out Christ’s love in a complex world.

We know that striving to live more like Christ is a tough task. It engages our hearts, our minds, and our bodies. It challenges our assumptions and exposes us to complicated issues.

But we don't work at it alone. We work together as a community-pushing and encouraging each other along the way.

Meet our Christian Formation team and learn more about the opportunities we provide to help the Bethel University community work together towards life transformation.

Spiritual Formation

At Bethel, spiritual growth happens when we build meaningful relationships with friends and mentors. It's not about indoctrination or spoon-feeding faith.

Student teams meet regularly for prayer and plan events to bring the power of prayer to the heart of our community. The Bethel community is invited to gather together for prayer on Thursdays from 11:15-11:45 a.m. in the Underground.
