In August of 2018, two roads intersected – Bethel and Ricky Garner. Ricky Garner has been a pastor and church planter in the DFW area before coming to Tyler. He has been on the pastoral staff of a local church and over the course of the last year, has felt an irresistible call to step out in faith and plant a multicultural church in Tyler. With that being said, Bethel is excited to announce Bethel Bible Hope where Ricky Garner will be the campus pastor!

who we are

Our vision is to be a church that pleases God. We desire to be a genuine movement of missionaries living out the Great Commission through the empowerment of God’s Spirit. A ministry that mirrors heaven: multiethnic, multigenerational, multiplying and fruitful for the glory of God and the good of our city.
