“Bethel University is a private christian school in the great state of Minnesota. We compete at the Division III level...this means we cannot give football scholarships. Our goal is to compete academically, athletically and spiritually in every day life. The key is a base desire to serve the King of Kings and be a tough compassionate man! We want to win in everything, every day. There's great joy in going through this TOGETHER and for each other! If you are interested in learning more about Bethel, please fill out our recruiting questionnaire. We'd love for you to pursue us! The people you go to college with will mark your life, and you theirs!”
