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.

 

As you all know, COVID-19 has impacted all of our lives.  Due to social distancing recommendations and the stay-at-home order, we are not gathering on Sunday mornings or Wednesday evenings in person through. However, we want to stay connected through this time as best as we can.

Currently, we are hosting our Wednesday night program LIVE and ONLINE via Facebook and Instagram on Wednesdays at 2 PM.

Why 2 PM? Our hope is that more students will have the ability and time to tune in during the afternoon when maybe they are getting bored or looking for something to do.  Some students are still able to continue to work in the evening and so we hope this time works.  However, they LIVE-STREAM will continue to be available to watch afterwards as well.  We’re encouraging students to start a watch party with their friends and connect with their small group leader and small group friends to continue the discussion.

Parents, we encourage you to join in with your students too!!!

Current Wednesday Series

To some people, the Easter season is all about candy, bunnies, and colorful eggs. Of course, Easter is a time of joy and celebration, but that’s not the whole story — because, before we can celebrate the joy of Jesus’ victory, we have to first remember the pain of Jesus’ suffering. In this series, we’ll look at Jesus’ final days, death, and resurrection, as well as the experiences of the early Church, as we see how the Jesus who suffered suffers with you and the Jesus who lives now lives in you.

Mission Trips

If your student is interested in an upcoming mission, you may contact Pastor Kevin.

Discipleship/Evangelism (High School)

 “Lead THE Cause”(LTC) mission trip is for all high school students (graduating 8th graders – graduating seniors.  LTC will be 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.

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
