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.


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 local bands at this high-energy, Christ-centered experience. Attend our final MegaRally on November 5, 2017, from 6-8 p.m. If you or someone you know has a story of how a MegaRally has impacted you or them, please share the story with us! A portion of it may be included in the finale. 

Check our events listing for an upcoming MegaRally.

Student Discipleship Conferences

We offer a weekend discipleship conference for middle school students:

  • Ignite is a 24-hour retreat for students in grades 6-9. They come away inspired and equipped to be more effective servant leaders in their churches and schools.

The conference features 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-year rotation so students can attend more than once.


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