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 School Students

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 October-April.                                                                       
  • Parent Workshops: Host an hour workshop for parents of middle and/or high school students. Workshops are designed to help parents explore ways to engage with their student around culturally relevant topics.
