STUDENT MINISTRY

FOR GRADES 6-12

Helping students live with Jesus, in community, and on mission

Welcome!

BBC Students is a place for every student (grades 6-12) as they encounter Jesus and His church. We want students to know they’re loved and cared for. We want them to see that their identity is in Jesus, not in their snaps, tik toks, or stories. Our goal is simply this: We want students to know Jesus and to follow in Him. Ultimately we want students not just to find a place to belong here at BBC Students; we want them to live with Jesus on a daily basis, in community with their Small Group, and on a mission to unleash a revolution of love in the homes, schools, teams, and wherever they go!

We also have several retreats for students to have fun through engaging games, small group activities, and powerful worship experiences. 

If you have any questions, please contact me.

Youth Pastor

Join us Wednesday Nights, 6:30-8pm

At The HUB (11952 Hancock St., across the parking lot).
Doors open at 6pm. (No midweek service on December 29)

For Grades 6 – 12

Each week we spend our first hour in a large group. During this time, we provide engaging worship, solid biblical teaching, and chances to respond to the Gospel. We connect relevant Scripture with students’ everyday lives and issues, so they can learn how to respond as a follower of Jesus. Students are encouraged to invite friends to join them!

During our second hour, students meet with their small group. Each small group is broken up by gender and grade. These are led by the same adult leader(s) every week, so students have a consistent mentor guiding them in their relationship with Jesus. We don’t want a student to stay anonymous in our ministry, so we surround them with other students and leaders who know their name and their story. Small groups are important because we truly believe that learning and growing together leads to more healthy, Christ-filled lives!

1. Worship Time

Powerful and engaging worship.

2. Teaching Time

Solid biblical teaching that connects relevant Scripture with students’ everyday lives.

3. Small Group Time

Small groups are broken up by gender and grade.

New Series for Wednesday Nights Starting January 5:  “I HAVE QUESTIONS”

Our Wednesday night worship series will resume on January 5, 6:30pm at The HUB.  Hope to see you then!

 Let’s face it, life isn’t easy. In times of loss, grief, pain, or doubt, it’s normal to have questions — and it’s okay to ask them. If you’ve ever tried to make sense of your circumstances, or wished life didn’t have to hurt so much, or wondered why God won’t fix what you’re going through, you’re not alone. In this series, we’ll hear about a few people from Scripture who know exactly what it’s like. With Esther, David, Peter, Amos, and John, we’ll explore hard questions you thought you weren’t allowed to ask, like “When people are hurting, where is God? When I’m hurting, why does God feel far away? If God is good, why do bad things happen? And when life hurts, is God listening?”

Summer 2022 Mission Trips

LEAD THE CAUSE Mission Trip

We are excited to be taking a team of Sr. High students to Denver, Colorado, for a one-week trip called “Lead THE Cause” (LTC).

LTC is a weeklong immersive discipleship experience in Denver, CO where students gain a solid understanding of the Gospel, powerful tools to share it, and opportunities to engage with the world around them. Ultimately the goal is to learn how to be disciples who make disciples – these are our passions as a student ministry. Our desire is for the students and leaders to grow as a team as they care for and challenge each other. The whole goal of this team is for students to live out what they have learned and grown in after the trip.

Serving Locally

If Lead the Cause is not right for you. but you would like to serve with us locally, please contact Pastor Kevin to be added to our summer local Serve Team. Throughout the summer, we will have opportunities to work on service projects for our local community. Not only will we work hard but we’ll have fun together sharing the Good News of Jesus through our acts of service! If you have a service project that our team could participate in, please let Pastor Kevin know by emailing him at kdrehmel@beckerbaptist.org
