OUR PURPOSE AND WHY WE EXIST
Our purpose is to reach youth who do not know Jesus Christ.
We exist to disciple youth into a relationship with Jesus and develop them to disciple others.
WHAT WE DO
We believe prayer is important for ministering to the youth in this generation. God has something to say and prayer helps to largely connect the hearts of youth to the heart of the Father. We cannot do what we do without prayer and the work of the Holy Spirit.
- Youth Focused Prayer - Monday nights from 6:30-8:00 PM (Zoom until further notice)
- Parents Prayer - The first Saturday of the month from 10:00-11:00 AM (Prayer Room/Zoom)
- Youth Intercession - (more details to come)
RADIATE ENCOUNTER GATHERING
On Wednesday nights we gather for a time of fellowship, a teaching, small groups and then respond to God in worship and prayer. Join us from 7-9 PM. Doors open at 6:30 PM for a time of fellowship fun. We start promptly at 7 PM.
We will seek the Lord as a youth community. Our theme this year is "Stand Firm". We learn together in fellowship, worship, prayer ministry and the word of God. We are learning to love Jesus, join us!
RETREATS, CAMPS AND CONFERENCES
Our youth love to go to camp and retreats. We try to host retreats twice a year and head to camp in the summer for Junior High and Senior High Camp weeks.
Throughout the year, we plan fun events for our youth like The Blitz! Almost all the youth love this event and it is one of the highlights of the year. We also do theme nights, Arts Night, Game Night and other fun sorts of things.
OUR YOUTH COMMUNITY
Our youth community is made of youth, parents and caring adult volunteers. We would love to have you get involved in some way. It takes a village to raise a child and a community so that no youth falls through the cracks. We want this to be a safe community and for those who need a family, your tribe.
You may be curious about what we are all about and the best way to see is to come visit us on a Wednesday night at 7pm. We meet at Bethel Christian Fellowship located at 1466 Portland Ave, St. Paul, MN 55104. You are welcome any time to check us out. We are a community learning to seek Jesus, love the Lord because of His great love for us, going deeper with the Holy Spirit and developing as disciples who disciple others. If this sounds interesting to you, you are welcome anytime to check it out! We offer ministry and events to youth 7th through 12th grade. We would love to walk with you as you develop in your faith!
