Bethel University extends a huge thank you to all who minister to high school students!

Students today...

  • Long to understand who God is.
  • Want to understand how faith fits with difficult questions.
  • Wrestle with what their calling is.

Bethel wants to partner with you, as you help guide students on their spiritual journey in order to lead them into a deeper understanding of where God is at work in the world, and how they are called to be involved as followers of Christ.


  • Living The Questions: Refer a student to participate in a 10-month leadership experience that begins with a week at Bethel followed by a mentoring relationship, a project and two retreats.
  • Youth Crew: Invite a team of Bethel students to your church for an hour or two of free programming. The program a lesson, small group discussion, and interactive games.
  • ReCharge: Send a few students to attend an overnight retreat in November, for students who want to reconnect with God and His Word.
  • Winter Thaw: Send a few students to attend an overnight retreat, in January, for students to explore how faith intersects with a relevant topic.
  • Parent Workshops: Bethel's Youth Theology Institute are available to facilitate a parent workshop ar your church.

Mentors Needed

Research has found that youth are more likely to stay in church, after graduation, if at least one adult from church made a significant investment in them personally and spiritually during their high school years. For this reason, we strongly recommend students who participate in Living The Questions meet monthly with an adult mentor in your church for the 10-month leadership experience. Please refer potential mentors to our Mentor Information page.
