The Bethany college class seeks to glorify God by edifying, encouraging, and equipping college-age believers towards greater satisfaction and joy in Christ both now and forever (1 Tim. 4:12; 2 Tim. 2:22).  This ministry gives young adults the chance to get involved in the local church, experience discipleship, and connect with other college students.

We are very excited about encouraging our college students towards greater satisfaction in Christ! We desire for college students to get involved in the local church and have sufficient opportunities to be discipled and connect with other brothers and sisters in Christ. Our college ministry is open to all students and college-aged individuals 25 years of age or younger.
