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.

Youth Crew

Bethel's Youth Crew is ready to serve you by facilitating an evening or morning of youth programming with your high school students! Youth Crew is made up of university students who have a passion to help youth grow as truth-seekers and world-changers! Learn more.


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

Living the Questions

Living the Questions is more than a camp experience. It's a summer program plus a leadership experience! The adventure begins with a weeklong summer program on the campus of Bethel University, followed by a leadership experience. During the nine months of the leadership experience, you will meet monthly with an adult mentor, work on a community engagement project and return to campus for two retreats. Learn more. 

Partnerships and Outside Events

We partner with several area organizations to provide events and training that help equip and empower those who work with youth, including:

  • Summer Camps at Bethel - Summer should be more than a break—it should be an experience. That's why we offer exciting opportunities for students to exercise their minds and their bodies. Register today for one of our academic or athletic camps.
  • Recharge Youth Leaders Event
  • Converge North Central - Each September, Bethel hosts the Youth Pastor Kick-Off Luncheon, presented by Converge North Central. Check our events listing for the next luncheon.
  • Trout Lake Camps - The partnership between Bethel and Trout Lake Camps resulted in a scholarship for camp interns who attend Bethel following their summer of service. After their first summer, students will receive a $2,000 scholarship toward their Bethel tuition. For each summer they return to Trout, an intern will receive an additional $2,000 for the following academic year, as long as funds allow.
