College Ministry aims to disciple and encourage students as they deepen their relationships with Christ. We see this happening primarily through connections and relationships with other students, as well as with those who are a little further down the road of life. We gather for weekly small groups and monthly events; and students meet quarterly with their non-student host. Whether you’re a freshman just starting classes, a senior getting ready to face your career, or somewhere in between, we’re looking forward to meeting you, having fun, and sharing life together.

College Small Groups

Small groups are the lifeblood of Bethany Green Lake’s college ministry. Led by nonstudents who are a little further down the road of life, these weekly groups are a place for you to be known, meet others, study the Word, pray for one another, and laugh your heart out. Groups typically meet near campuses, and all have rides available. Use the links below to register, and we will contact you about your placement.
