Bethel's Youth Theology Institute

Bethel University's Youth Theology Institute seeks to help high school students grow as Truth-seekers and World-changers, through dialogue, reflection, and service. Each year the topic focuses on how faith intersects with one of these topics: justice, science or media.

 

Opportunities for High Schoolers

  • Living The Questions: A 10-month leadership experience that begins with a summer program on Bethel’s campus followed by mentor experience, service project, and two retreats 
  • ReCharge: A retreat in November that invites students to re-connect with God and His Word.              
  • Winter Thaw: An overnight retreat in January that allows students to explores how faith intersects with a culturally relevant topic.

Opportunities for Churches

  • Youth Crew: Bring a team of Bethel students to your church for a free night or morning of youth programming. The program includes a devotional, engaging small group discussion and interactive games. We are scheduling dates for the months of October - April.                                                                       
  • Parent Workshops: Host an hour workshop for parents of middle- and/or high-schoolers. Workshops are designed to help parents explore ways to engage with their student around culturally relevant topics.
