  • High School (Grades 9-12) “Waffles & Wisdom”:  Our class is designed to cut through the confusion of this world and the society they live in by teaching students a Christ-centered look at the major issues they deal with in their daily lives.

Mission Trips

If your student is interested in an upcoming mission, contact Pastor Kevin ASAP.

New Orleans (High School Youth), June 2018

The High School youth are sent on a mission trip each year.  They went on a discipleship training trip to Denver in 2017.  In June of 2018, they will partner in New Orleans with local organizations to meet ongoing needs in that community.  We may serve all or part of the week at a food shelf, clothing distribution center, soup kitchen, children’s program or elder care facility.

Local Outreach (Middle School), June 2018

The Middle School youth mission for summer 2017 was outreach in the local community. They will do local outreach again in June.

Youth Leadership

Kevin Drehmel, Youth Pastor

Kevin Drehmel started as Youth Pastor at Becker Baptist Church in July, 2014. His wife, Amy, and family are originally from Wisconsin and moved to Becker from Illinois. In the past, they have served in ministry in Wisconsin and Texas.

Kevin summarizes his calling in these words: “I am passionate about youth ministry and feel that God has put a calling on my life. I have a love for students and I truly enjoy ministering to them. I have a passion for the lost, for winning students to Christ and advancing the Kingdom!”

In his down time, he enjoys time spent with his family, heading to the gym, traveling (anywhere!), reading, hang-outs with friends, good food, coffee, banana cream pie, hiking, camping, concerts, the Packers, hockey, movies and more.

Life Verse:
“And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.” – Colossians 1:9-10

What’s “The HUB”?

A lot of youth events happen at The HUB, a home-turned-gathering place in the heart of Becker. The HUB is located across the street from Becker Baptist Church at 11952 Hancock Avenue. Look for the white building with the green banner and come join the fun!
