Leadership Quest is a week for high school students (current 10th – 12th grade students) to grow in their faith by deepening personal discipleship habits, cultivating leadership skills, sharpening relationship-building tools, and discovering God-given confidence and vision for their life. The training received at this camp will yield fruit in the way of humbly-confident servants today and for years to come!

Our 19th Annual August BLAST retreat is scheduled for August 3-6!
NOTE: we are adding some time to this year’s retreat by loading at 6 pm on Thursday night instead of Friday afternoon. If this will be an issue for you, please let Pastor Chris know to talk about your options!

This retreat is open to students who will be in 6th-12th grade in the fall. People interested in participating as Team Leaders or on the Logistics Team (meal prep and serving, planning and executing game plans, securing supplies, supervising, assisting wherever needed, etc.) should contact Pastor Chris ASAP as planning for this retreat will begin in May.

BEFC’s Young Adult Ministry


“A Contrarian’s Guide to Knowing God” – Facilitated by Blake Paulson

Where:  Max & Sidney Salvevold’s (10030 17th Avenue SE, Becker)
When:   Monday evenings from 8:00 to 9:00 pm * Starting June 19th and ending July 31
Cost:  $10 for the book (reading not required, but available for deeper study)

High school graduates, ELEVATE alumni, and/or young adults living in the area…let’s connect for a dive into questions that surround healthy and helpful ways to grow in our relationship with the LORD and discover ways we can help others experience a thriving relationship with Him!  We have set aside six Monday nights (we won’t meet on July 3) to dig into the study “A Contrarian’s Guide to Knowing God.”  Feel free to show up and take in the video sessions and discussion, or dig a little deeper by reading the corresponding chapters in the book.  Either way, we look forward to compelling discussions, meaningful connections, and a little fun along the way!

Let Pastor Chris (763.244.4957) know if you plan to attend, and if you’d like the book let him know by June 11 so he can get it ordered!

“Larry Osborne has mapped out a brand-new path for spiritual formation in A Contrarian’s Guide to Knowing God. This is one of the only books I know that takes you on the path to God without insisting that you be more disciplined and more structured and that you read a lot more. Finally, a book for the rest of us!”
—Dave Ferguson, lead pastor of Community Christian Church and visionary for NewThing Network in Chicago

This book will speak to everyone who has ever felt ‘left out’ spiritually. Larry’s insights cut through the commonly accepted, guilt-induced world of religion as he captures the raw essence of New Testament relationship.
Reading this book feels like a conversation with Jesus over coffee—simple, profound, biblical, yet completely opposite of what I’ve learned from America’s polluted version of Christianity.
Every year one book grabs my attention and speaks to my soul. A Contrarian’s Guide to Knowing God was one of those books.”
—Craig Groeschel, senior pastor of Life.Church in Oklahoma City

These classes are geared to the student who is ready to take the next step in their walk with Jesus, growing their personal relationship with Him. This happens as students participate in the weekly studies of God’s Word, spend time in the suggested readings for the upcoming week, memorize key scriptures, pray together, and put what they learn into action.
