Preparing Young Leaders to Serve Their Communities

As part of our ongoing commitment to diversity, we've partnered with a local faith-based community affiliate Urban Ventures to recruit top-quality students and support the Act Six program at Bethel. Inspired by the sixth chapter in the book of Acts, the Act Six program is designed to develop a diverse network of local leaders who are committed to building vibrant communities where everyone thrives. Act Six Scholars will engage in long-term mentoring and leadership development opportunities throughout their time at Bethel, under the care of the Intercultural Student Programs and Services team.
