God’s Word says we are designed for community. At Bethel, we want to create opportunities for people to be known and to know others..


Giving financially is a personal way to worship. It’s convenient, immediate, and most importantly, SECURE.

Joshua Aduddell

Missions Associate

Native to Texas; I grew up in Lexington, while my wife, Jade, grew up in Kilgore. We both attended Texas A&M University and became elementary teachers after graduating. In 2012, we met while teaching and got married in 2014. We have three children: Ezra, Elias, and Esme. In 2017, my family and I joined staff with Campus Crusade for Christ (Cru) where we served overseas doing high school ministry in Slovakia. We returned from Slovakia in 2021 and into a new ministry within Cru called Church Movements. This new role allowed us to serve in Bethel with the vision of connecting people to Jesus, developing missional leaders, mobilizing the church, and serving the city. I believe mobilizing and training believers is one of the most strategic roles that can be played today in fulfilling the Great Commission. It is a privilege to be a part of Bethel and to be a part of a church that has a heart for reaching East Texas and the world with the message of the gospel.

Jessie Batson

South Campus Ministry Coordinator & Assistant to the Senior Pastor

I was born and raised in Scottsdale, Arizona, and moved to Texas in 2011. I’ve been a member at Bethel since 2015 with my husband Jordan. We have two beautiful daughters and one son who make us laugh every day. I have worked in various roles at Bethel, and love being a part of the local church. If I’m not at home, you can probably find me at Target, Starbucks, or on a run!

Jessica Hyde

Preschool and Nursery Director - South

I was born and raised in Tyler. My husband, Jason, and I live in Bullard and married in 2013. We love calling Bethel our church home. We appreciate that Bethel presents the wonderful truth of eternal salvation given as a free gift, by grace, through faith alone in Christ alone. We have a son, Lincoln, and a daughter, Mabry. They are one of our biggest blessings. As the Nursery and Preschool Director, one of the things I enjoy most is being able to walk alongside parents and volunteers as we lead, teach, and disciple the next generation of believers in Jesus.

Casey Rivers

Director os Student Ministry

My wife Doni Rivers and I married in 2006. We are both Texas natives but started our marriage in Nashville, TN. After seven years, we moved back to Texas because we have eight kids, and Texas is home to all of our babysitters– AKA grandparents! We are proud parents to Audra, Stellan, Clara, Jude, Vivienne, Pierce, Naomi, and Penelope. Our hearts and quiver are full. I have pursued music with a heart for ministry for over 20 years. We became members at Bethel Bible Church South campus in 2014 and then served as youth leaders at our Whitehouse campus for three years. I am thrilled to be back at the South campus and for the opportunity to serve as Director of Student Ministries. I am also grateful to serve alongside a wonderful team of leaders who have a heart to invest and make disciples of our students for the glory of God.
