Born with Williams syndrome, independent living major Ben Boatman, a freshman, overcame bullying and is now a BUILD student at Bethel.

“It was just one kid. [No one else bullied me],” he said.

This Project Bethel video tells the story of Boatman, who says college isn’t perfect, but he has found hope through studying the Bible with Assistant Campus Pastor Jason Steffenhagen.
