Our Leadership

At Bethany, we recognize a leadership structure comprised of a plurality of Elders (Pastors) and Deacons. These men are identified and recognized by the congregation as active servants and teachers. They are not “super Christians”; they are everyday common men who strive to live by the disciplines specifically described in 1 Timothy 3:1-13 and Titus 1:5-9, and lead by principles of biblical leadership throughout the Old and New Testaments. With two devoted full-time staff Pastors, together they function as a unified team, seeking the Holy Spirit’s provision of wisdom in leading Christ’s church.
