Erin Kinzel

The Bethel University Department of Religion & Philosophy will host the first “Life-Changing Faith Speech Competition” on Bethel’s campus on April 10, 2021. High school juniors and seniors can tell their faith story and enter to compete for a $5,000, $2,500 or $1,250 scholarship to Bethel.

Students must develop a 3-5 minute speech centered on one of three topics: 1) How have you integrated or lived out your faith in your school or community? 2) How has your Christian faith impacted someone else’s life? 3) How has someone else’s Christian faith impacted your life? 

To enter, students should submit a 30-60 second video preview of their speech by 11:59 p.m. EST on March 31, 2021. Selected finalists will have the opportunity to present their full speech in front of a panel of judges on Saturday, April 10, 2021, on Bethel’s campus.
