Youth

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 starting Sept. 11th 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! 

 

CURRENT SERIES:

When you think of Christmas, you probably think about an event — an event that is (hopefully) filled with gifts, food, family, and fun. But what happens when that event isn’t as joyful or peaceful as we wish it were?  And is the “event” even what Christmas is about anyway? In this series, we’ll discover what this season is truly about. It’s about getting ready to receive God’s gift of Jesus, sharing that gift with others, rejoicing in the surprising gifts God gives us, and taking time to enjoy God’s presence.

 

MAKE PLANS AND MARK YOUR CALENDARS…

DECEMBER 1-15: THE “US FOR THEM” CHRISTMAS CHALLENGE
We’re encouraging teenagers to be FOR others (instead of just themselves) this Christmas with a challenge. Students will be challenged to bring blankets, socks, hats and mitten donations for the homeless.  Each small group leader will collect them for their group until Dec. 18th.  The small group with the most items will win a prize.  The items collected will be distributed to the homeless during street ministry in January. See me if you have any questions.

DECEMBER 18 – MOMENTUM CHRISTMAS @ THE HUB from 6:30-8 PM – Our Annual Momentum Christmas Party is just around the corner! There will be delicious food and treats, fun Christmas themed games and activities, some Christmas carols, a Christmas Message, and of course…our annual White Elephant Gift Exchange Game.  To participate in the White Elephant gift exchange, please bring a WRAPPED gift, no more than $15 in value along with either a bag of chips OR a 2 Liter of Soda.  Everything else is being provided by the Church and Momentum Leadership Team.  DON’T FORGET our Ugly Sweater Contest, so bring your ugliest sweater and we will award prizes to the Top 3 from Mystery Judges!

DECEMBER 22 – SUNDAY NIGHT MOVIE NIGHT 8 PM @ THE HUB – Momentum is having a MOVIE NIGHT! Encourage your small group to come on out for a movie and FREE POPCORN!

Cost (includes LTC, travel, room and board): $700.00 (A deposit of $100 will hold your students spot for the trip. Limited space available. Great Christmas present, parents!!!) 😊 NOTE: We will have fundraisers to help offset the cost of the trip.  Registration details coming in January.

Our high school (those entering 9th grade Fall 2020 through graduated 12th grade in spring 2019) students are invited to attend this summer’s “Lead THE Cause”(LTC) mission trip. LTC is 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.

Youth Leadership

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!
