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.

New Series

We’ve kicked off a new series on Wednesdays, 6:30pm at The HUB, called “STRETCH” — If your faith were a muscle, how flexible would it be? Could it stretch to your knees? Your shins? Your toes?  Or are you not sure you even have any faith to stretch in the first place? Just like your body, if you want a faith that is strong, growing, and capable of carrying you through difficult challenges, you’re going to need to stretch it. It might be fun. It might be challenging. But it will definitely be worthwhile. In this series, we’ll discover four ways we can stretch our faith from Paul, the author of the book of Romans and a man whose life was completely transformed by Jesus. Thanks to Paul’s words, we know we can stretch our faith by making a commitment, by starting something new, and by letting something go. We can even stretch our faith when we feel like we’ve failed.​

Upcoming Events

SEE YOU AT THE POLE – SEPT. 23, 7am:  In this 30th year of SYATP, perhaps there has never been a more important time to pray for students, school, communities & nations.

Mission Trips

Discipleship & Evangelism Training

On July 20-24, 2020 the youth went on a  trip to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area with an evangelism theme: MISSION POSSIBLE  to 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.  They camped, fished, swam, hiked, canoed, hammocked, worshipped, roughed it, and learned about our mission in life, while enjoying the wilderness, playing games, having lots of fun, and more! 

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!
