Ignite Student Ministries

Bring Light. Bring Life.

Our Student Ministry exists to move our students toward spiritual maturity and growth in their relationship with Jesus Christ through pursuing God, connecting with the church, and engaging the world. We believe that students have a strategic impact to make on our community. Take some time to explore the ministry opportunities that Bethany Church has for students and then if you have any questions or if you would like to serve in this ministry, please contact Billy Hestand our Student Ministry Pastor.

Fun, Friendship & Growth

Wednesday nights are the big event each week in our Student Ministry. We play games and have a message as a large group, but then we break off into smaller groups (we call them Cell Groups) based on gender and grade to study God's word together, and have a more personal time for growth.

Sign a Student up for Cell Groups

Worship Service is for Everyone

We believe there is great power in having many different generations worshiping God together, and we want our Students to be a part of that. Students are welcome and encouraged to join our main Worship Service.

Getting out of Church walls

We think it is incredibly important to get our students outside of our church walls and into the world. We do this in a variety of ways from retreats to service projects, all designed to grow and engage our students in a fun way designed for them.

S.A.L.T. & L.I.G.H.T.

Salt & Light is a leadership development program for a handful of chosen students in Ignite Student Ministry that want to further their spiritual growth in leadership. S.A.L.T. is for High School and L.I.G.H.T. is for Middle School. Not all students that apply will be on the teams. Pastor Billy will contact you if he wants to further the interview process.

Apply for S.A.L.T. and L.I.G.H.T.
