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
We welcome all students in grades 6 - 12!
We would love for you to join us on Wednesday nights at 6:30pm at The HUB for an exciting, high-energy worship experience. Each service is packed full of fun, friends and great teaching from God’s Word.
1 Timothy 4:12 says that young people should set the example and in Momentum, our hope is that every student that walks through the doors would grow in their faith, in life and in leadership! We can’t wait to see you! Bring a friend and don’t even think about missing it!
Sunday School classes meet at 9:15am every Sunday. Learn synchronized lessons from the Old Testament. Parents & children/youth are learning the same topical teaching at the same time meaning the entire family can easily discuss the Bible more naturally throughout the week!
Grades 6-8 (Middle School) taught by Kim Wheeler in Room #137
Grades 9-12 (High School) taught by Pastor Kevin Drehmel in Room #136
Parents taught by Sue Persons & Mary Walsh in Room #218/Library
Wednesday Night Current Series
Don’t you just love a little friendly competition? There’s something about being a part of a team that makes you excited to root for “us” and root against “them.” With people and with God, we’re often quick to see others like our enemies, but God invites us to see things differently. In this series, we’ll explore the stories of Abraham, Jeremiah, Jonah, Isaiah, and more, as we see how the big story of Scripture reveals that God is for us, we’re called to be for others, God is for our enemies, and Jesus proves that God is for us.
MAKE PLANS AND MARK YOUR CALENDARS…
FEBRUARY 1 – STREET MINISTRY – Join us at The Hub at 3 PM, as we prepare sandwiches, load up blankets, socks, mittens, hats, etc. and head down to the cities to do some street ministry.

High School Youth
“Lead THE Cause”(LTC) mission trip is for all high school students (graduating 8th graders – graduating seniors. LTC will be a week-long evangelism and discipleship training event where students are trained as leaders for THE Cause of Christ—to go and make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19-20). As a group, we will have a unique opportunity to develop a strategic plan for how we will bring the gospel message back to our community. This trip isn’t a summer camp with jet skiing, horseback riding, and an occasional Bible study. It is a week filled with the Holy Spirit, prayer, worship, evangelism training, hands-on experience with sharing the Gospel, and great teambuilding exercises. LTC is also a great way to prepare your student for future mission trips, leadership in careers, and to share the Gospel with their friends and classmates.

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
