BFSM High School in a Digital Age
Believers Fellowship Student Ministries looks a little different during social distancing! As you can imagine, all of our weekly meetings are postponed until further notice. As our major events come closer, we will evaluate cancelations as they come up. As for ministry involvement now, we are encouraging students and families to check out the three videos that will drop weekly! These are short videos meant to encourage us to get into the Word of God.
Every Monday we want to send out a short devotion to set the tone for the week! This video will explain how to use the tools and resources we lay out for you! Every Wednesday we want to send out a short video where Johnny interviews a leader in the community! These will be opportunities of levity and leverage. We want to have fun (levity), but also glean tips on how to grow in our faith based on the testimony during the interview (leverage). Most Fridays we will post a more academic video. We will start a series called “The Way” where we highlight the differences between Christianity and other world religions. I look forward to this apologetics type course.
Each video will drop through our Facebook page, our Instagram page (IGTV), and our Youtube page. We encourage interactions through comments that are on topic. BFSM will monitor the comments section diligently.
We also will encourage small group interactions through the Marco Polo app. Our small group mentors are willing to join a group of same gender students to talk about the videos posted and have community and connections in social distancing.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Johnny Pearson! firstname.lastname@example.org
Every Tuesday we get a chance to discuss what we are reading in James through the Bible App! You can download Zoom for this and join our meeting all by clicking here.

A few times a year we plan an event that will rock your face off. The event may be intended to bring you closer to God. Sometimes the special event brings you closer to your friends. And sometimes the event brings you closer to your community while you serve those around you. These events sometimes cost money, and usually require a special consent form signed by parents. So if you are interested in coming to a special event you see on the calendar, it is a good idea to meet us at one of the regular weekly events first.
July 11-18 HS Mission Trip
This summer, our BFSM High School ministry team will be taking students on an inner city missions trip to San Francisco. It will be a 2-day drive down and back and we will stay at a church in the heart of San Francisco. We will be working with an organization that has built relationships which gives us the opportunity to come alongside and serve God’s people where they are at! If you have a heart to serve or feel God calling you to this trip, we’d love to have you. We have some important training and payment dates we want you to know about. Signup today with a $50 deposit to hold your spot. Total trip cost will be approx. $650.
May 17th- Training and $200 payment due
May 31st- Training and $200 payment due
June 28th-Training and $200-300 payment due (wont know final amount until after GALA)
July 10th- All-family prayer and sendoff BBQ at BF, 6pm.
In order to defer cost, you are required to participate in the GALA, March 6th. The GALA is an awesome event that helps raise half of the cost for you to go on this trip. There will be (2) auction items/baskets required per student. You will also help by participating the night of the event with decor, setup and cleanup. Baskets will be due Feb 16th so don’t wait! Please stop by BF and ask for your Gala Packet which has merchant letters, a script of what to say and auction basket forms for you to fill out and turn in with your items. If you have questions, please contact Johnny Pearson at email@example.com or Jen Bonham at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are excited to have you on the missions team and see what God will do in San Francisco this summer!
