Did you know you, as a Bethel Seminary supporter, are part of a sweeping movement God is using to reach young people for Christ?

Your prayer and your gifts to Bethel Seminary are vital in helping prepare men and women to be effective leaders and ministers of the gospel. One graduate impacted by your support is Nick Hall S’11, 2016 Bethel Seminary Alumnus of the Year.

As a college junior, Nick wrote a paper for an English class about how to reach his generation with the gospel. That paper went viral and sparked a student-led movement that eventually reached 50,000 students and led to the creation of PULSE. As Nick describes it, PULSE is a Minneapolis-based non-profit started by “ordinary kids from North Dakota” to reach a generation of young people for Jesus.

“God loves to use unlikely people from unlikely places to do extraordinary things so that people know that this is God,” says Nick.

To date, Nick has shared the gospel with nearly three million people in the United States and overseas. More than 525,000 people have responded to the gospel.

Nick’s story—God’s story—doesn’t end there.

Five years ago, Nick and the PULSE team felt a daunting call to rally a million people to a prayer and worship gathering on the National Mall in Washington D.C.

On July 16, hundreds of thousands gathered on the National Mall at Together 2016 to glorify Jesus Christ. Throughout the day, major Christian performing artists, speakers, and personalities took the stage, including Casting Crowns, Francis Chan, Hillsong United, Jeremy Camp, Lecrae, and Bethel’s own Campus Pastor Laurel Bunker.

Says Nick, “Bethel Seminary is about … raising up a generation of unschooled and ordinary people and breathing life and faith and confidence into them, and saying ‘You, young man, young woman, you can do anything! Not because you are great, but because God is great.’”

We praise God for the generosity of friends like you whose support of Bethel Seminary equips Nick and others like him to answer God’s call. Your support impacts a generation desperately in need of Christ.

Would you consider making a generous gift to Bethel Seminary at this time when we celebrate the extravagant gift God gave us through the birth of his son? As you partner with us, you’re helping to prepare the next generation of God’s “ordinary” anointed to meet the call—and go.

As Nick so aptly puts it, “All I know is that the time is now. The time is now to give. The time is now to go. The time is now not to play it safe.”
