Wisdom and unity, leadership and humility – the elders of Bethel strive to lead and serve with love. Our Shepherding Elders care for the ongoing and emergent needs of the body. Our Trustee Elders prayerfully set the vision of the church and oversee its governance. Bethel believes aspiring to this office is a noble task (1 Timothy 3) and involve the body in the vetting and election of this group each year.

Kalon has been married to his wife Jennifer for seven years. They are foster adoptive parents and have adopted two children: Mary-Faith and Judah.

They are currently active foster parents as well, and in addition to their adoptions, they’ve fostered two additional children (not all at once) over the last three years.
