Student Ministry: We Believe

The Student Ministry exists to lead 6th-12th graders to love God, love people and make disciples. We look to do this through fun events, great worship, engaging Bible study, and a real sense of family in Christ. 

We meet at THE ANNEX, which is located at 1132 McGee Dr, Norman, OK 73069, west of Bethel's Main Building. 

Big Events include:

  • Disciple Now
    D-Now is an in-town retreat in February where 6th-12th grade students stay all weekend at homes hosted by Bethel church members.  We play games, watch videos, eat, have live praise and worship, and dive deep into relevant Bible study.
  • Spring Break Trip
    We alternate each year between a Mission Trip and a Ski Trip.
  • Falls Creek Summer Camp
    OUR BIGGEST EVENT ALL YEAR!  This is our Summer camp at Falls Creek Baptist Assembly located near Davis, Oklahoma.
  • Fall Out
    An annual Fall Retreat held at Falls Creek where students are challenged to go deeper in their faith.
