Our mission is to “Move towards Jesus through relationships.” This is relationships with peers, and leaders, but most importantly it is a personal relationship with Jesus! We want to raise up a dynamic force of youth that are actively changing the world for Jesus Christ.
MOMENTUM MISSES YOU!!!
Here are some ways to continue to stay connected with us during this time:
WEEKLY LIVE MOMENTUM SERVICE @ 2pm
Make plans to join us weekly LIVE on Facebook, Instagram or YouTube for our Momentum service. If you aren’t available at 2pm, you can watch it on your own free time later on those sites as well. We’ll be starting a new series called “atypical“. For the next couple of weeks, we’ll look at four imperfect and “atypical” families from Scripture. We’ll discover that not-so-typical families are often used by God because not-so-typical families pray for each other, have tough conversations, and forgive each other.

Discipleship & Evangelism Training
This will be our own trip with an evangelism theme: MISSION POSSIBLE where we will discover that joining Jesus on His mission isn’t easy, but it’s not impossible. It’s a mission that requires us to be real, be helpful, be listeners, and be ready. This will be a 5-day trip full outfitted by a reputable outfitter. We will camp, fish, swim, hike, canoe, hammock, worship, rough it, learn about our mission in life, enjoy the wilderness, play games, have lots of fun, and more! We will also work on student leadership building. Cost of $400 includes transportation, food while camping, group camping equipment including tents, canoes, and cooking gear, and camping permits.) You will want to bring extra cash for food while traveling and souvenirs. Once we determine # of participants, etc., we will solidify the plans for this trip and additional information will come out.

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.
“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
