Welcome to Christian Life

The scriptural theme of the 2022-2023 academic year at Bethel University is, "Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.’" Isaiah 41:10.

At Bethel University, we want you to be all that you can be! We are going to provide you opportunities to grow intellectually, spiritually, and socially in a Christian environment. We serve a Lord and Savior who spoke the world into existence (Psalm 33:9) and yet knows the number of hairs you have on your head (Luke 12:7). 

Come and let us work with you to help you become everything the Lord wants you to be. In Chapel this year you are going to hear a variety of speakers and preachers from different denominations who will address this issue. Together we will explore this scripture and many others and see what exciting plans the good Lord just may have in store for you to be. Who is new and coming into your life? What new ideas and concepts will you be invited to explore? What new goals will you strive for and reach in the classroom, artistically, and on the field? We are excited to get started and see what the Lord has in store!

Rev. Dr. Anne Hames, 
Senior Chaplain

Parent Devotional Guide

Each year, our Chaplains coordinate the production of a Parent Devotional Guide to provide Biblical guidance and support for parents and others as they adjust to their students leaving for college. Faculty and staff members from throughout the University contribute to the guide.
