Students have the opportunity to participate in various mission activities throughout the year. Offerings include local, domestic, and an international project trip yearly. Previous projects involved street and homeless ministry in New York City, working with orphans in Haiti, a medical mission trip to Ecuador and evangelism in Germany. Evangelism is at the core of every trip as we share the love of and gospel of Jesus Christ around the world. Future projects trips are already under development, so stay tuned.

Fusion Camp

Every summer we pack up the van and head off to Fusion Camp ( This camp is the most fun you can pack into a week! Students spend a week in intensive Bible Study, recreation, special discussion topic times, and worship designed with youth in mind! Fusion Camp is the highlight of our summer! You don’t want to miss this.


New Bethesda has chosen to participate in both Ignite and Journey Conferences in the fall and spring of each year. Multiple churches from across Virginia come together for a great weekend at Eagle Eyrie Baptist Conference Center in Lynchburg. The weekend retreat is packed with worship, Bible study, and tons of activities. It’s a great place and time to get charged up for Christ!
