YOUTH MINISTRY

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.

Current Series:

“Free People”

Our weekly teaching will be available on Facebook or the BBC’s YouTube Channel by Monday. Make plans to join us, IN-PERSON, at The HUB on Wednesday nights from 7:30-8:30 PM for small group time together! Masks required. Practice social distancing!

Rules are not famous for freedom. But in a world where Jesus leads us, rules can do more than keep us safe. They can become our allies and an opportunity to love and serve the world around us. Every student needs to know that the right rules can set you free. It doesn’t always feel like freedom when a rule limits something you want, but what you want changes when you know who Jesus is. You become a free person, and free people don’t dance with danger, free people make decisions that benefit others, and free people give up their freedoms for others.

 

Discipleship Strategy:

DISCIPLESHIP STRATEGY – SPEND TIME WITH GOD: Each year, we have a discipleship strategy that we follow.  Why? Because we believe spiritual growth should be the lens through which we see everything else we do in our ministries. We believe there are four spiritual habits that help teenagers (and adults, too) grow closer to God – spending time with God, spending time with others, sharing our story and using our gifts. Our new focus is spending time with God. If we want to grow spiritually, we need to spend time growing in relationship with God through personal times of prayer, reading Scripture, reflection, and worship. We like to start our focus on this in the spring because usually, each year by spring, we know who our core students are by now, our small groups have solidified, students have matured (a little bit) and it’s a great backdrop to the Easter season. Of course, we encourage them all year to spend time with God, but this strategy is a way for a more focused emphasis on personal connection with God. Starting the end of February and for 40 days leading up to Easter we will have a daily social media devotional for students on all social media platforms.

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!

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!
