Spiritual Formation for All Students

Community Groups

God created us for relationships. In fact, throughout scripture we see that community is essential to living a Christlike life. Community groups at Bethel provide a small group setting in which students discover a place to grow, a place to be loved and challenged, a place to belong and become the person God has called them to be. Learn more about Community Groups.

Small Group Leaders Training

We celebrate when God inspires students to lead small groups.  Whether a group of artists, or athletes, or friends, or roommates, or students in the same major, we want to see all groups flourish. To that end, we offer regular training resources to help you facilitate discussion, handle Scripture well, and bring out the best in your group. To learn more, contact Pastor Matt Runion at matthew-runion@bethel.edu.

Christian Formation Leaders Training and Retreat

When you commit to serve as a leader of a Christian Formation ministry team, we commit to train you and mentor you as a leader.  You will also be invited to a retreat with other leaders: to come away, to slow down, to connect deeply with Jesus and each other. To apply to serve on a Christian Formation ministry team, email us at christian-formation@bethel.edu

If you would like to develop a new ministry, talk with a campus pastor about getting connected, equipped, and empowered. Connect with us!
