ANNOUNCEMENT: Bethel will only hold a 10:30 AM worship service at Bethel Fergus Falls today. All Sunday School, confirmation, ministry activities and other worship services are CANCELLED at BOTH CAMPUSES.


PURSUE GOD is a library of Bible-based conversation starters designed to help Christians make disciples.
Bethel Church has identified disciple-making as a priority and has partnered with PursueGod to offer our congregation a tool to disciple others.
PursueGod believes disciple-making should be something every Christian can do, and that’s why they have designed their tools around having simple conversations. Each topic in their library has a short video along with talking points and discussion questions. Just find a topic, share it with family, friends, or a small group, and invite others into a life-changing conversation.
This page will give you an overview of the Pursue God resource. Below is an image to help you understand how it works.
The Process
We've created a simple pathway to help you go "full circle" with a group or mentor. We call it the "3E" process:
  1. Engage: Start talking about the "Featured Topics" below, choosing whatever interests you.
  2. Establish: When ready, start "The Pursuit" (see below) to get established in a "full circle" faith.
  3. Empower: After you finish "The Pursuit," look outward and help someone else pursue God.

Featured Topics posts fresh topics every Monday on their category pages. Click one of the links below to visit the PursueGod website and see what’s featured and to browse all of their content by category.

The Pursuit

Below are the 12 videos of the Pursuit. The Pursuit journey will walk you through what it means to have a relationship with Jesus and help you establish a "full circle of faith." Visit the Pursue God website to find all the resources available for disciple making.

The First Video & Discussion

Below is the first of 12 videos in The Pursuit. View the full list on the Pursuit page.
Talking Points
  • If you make a commitment to pursue God, you will find him. Jeremiah 29:11-13
  • A full circle pursuit of God includes three things: Trusting Jesus, Honoring God, and Making Disciples.
  • Take ownership of your pursuit of God with four personal commitments:
    • Come prepared. Make a commitment to watch the video before you meet. This will make your conversation more meaningful for everyone.
    • Talk & listen. Don’t just bring your ideas and opinions to the table. Develop a teachable heart, and come ready to hear from God and others.
    • Discover truth. We believe the Bible has answers to every question. If you keep showing up, you can expect to discover a fresh perspective on just about any topic.
    • Act on it. The goal in every conversation is transformation, not just information. Be ready to step up and act on what you’re learning.
Discussion Questions
  1. What’s your initial reaction to this topic?
  2. Do you have any questions about faith or the Bible right now? Start a list.
  3. Make a list of areas where you would like to make improvements in your daily life.
  4. Read Psalm 139:17. Is this a new concept for you to realize that God uniquely created you? Explain.
  5. Read Jeremiah 29:11. What do you hope your life looks like in 5 or 10 years? Paint a picture.
  6. Where would you put yourself on the circle above? Explain.
  7. Is there a step you need to take based on today’s topic?

Help someone else pursue God.

After you finish "The Pursuit," look outward and help someone else pursue God.
If you don’t feel qualified to make disciples, just answer two simple questions: (1) Have you trusted Jesus? and (2) Are you honoring God in your daily life?

The greatest thing you can do in life is to help someone pursue God. Here are your next steps:
  • Step 1: Make a list of people who could use your help, and start praying for God to open the door to a mentoring relationship.
  • Step 2: Pick a topic or category that would engage someone on your list, and send it out with a simple invitation to talk.
