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.
“Merry Christmas to Me”
Join us Wednesdays at 6:30pm on Facebook and Instagram online starting December 2. Zoom small groups to follow. We will be on break for December 23 and 30.
Another Christmas is almost here, along with the annual onslaught of Christmas music, movies, lights, shopping lists, ads, and inflatable lawn ornaments. We all know the Christmas season is supposed to be about generosity, family, and celebrating the gift of Jesus . . . but to be honest — how much of your Christmas holiday is actually spent thinking about yourself and what you want? Since we’re all familiar with this selfishness struggle, this series will take us back to the very first Christmas — a day that was only possible because of the selflessness, generosity, and sacrifice of God and God’s people. On the first Christmas, Mary and Joseph gave up their comfort, the shepherds gave their stories, the wise men gave their worship, and
God gave everything. So this Christmas, what will you give in response?
November Discipleship – Table Talk Challenge:
Over the last few months, our spiritual habit focus has been on SPENDING TIME WITH OTHERS. If we want to grow spiritually, we need to be engaged in healthy community and Christlike relationships with others — with people who share our beliefs, as well as with people who don’t. With teenagers, we’re convinced the spiritual habit of Spending Time with Others is most important to cover at the beginning of every school year. It’s the time of year when students are building new friendships, joining new classes, teams, clubs, and activities, and beginning a new year with their small groups and more. So, for this activity, students will receive a deck of conversation-starter cards, and students will use them to take on the challenge of initiating conversations with others — especially people who are different from them, either at school or at church. Plus, our volunteers can use them to spark conversation in small groups too! Some of the conversation-starters will be fun, while others will be more strategic, and the cards can be used in a few different (and fun) ways to start conversations.
Building friendships can be challenging, especially during the beginning of the school year when the pressures of school, holidays, and taking that perfect pumpkin patch picture for Instagram are a top priority. Often, we all (our students included) allow our busyness and personal comfort to keep us from noticing the people around us and investing in new relationships. This challenge is meant to stretch students to jump into conversations with new people — especially people who may look, think, or act differently than they do. Through this discipleship activity, our goal is to give students tools to build diverse friendships outside of the church walls through easy conversation starter activities

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!
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
