Our Deacons

Deacons are the hands and feet of Jesus at Bethel. Whether it’s ensuring Sunday mornings run smoothly or reaching out to meet needs throughout the week, our deacons serve with open eyes and willing hearts. Bethel believes in the scriptural qualifications of deacons (1 Timothy 3) and involve the body in the vetting and election of this group each year.

Preston is their courageous boy and is 12 years old. Peyton is their sweet girl and is nine years old. Charlie and Amy love serving in the Children’s Ministry at Whitehouse.
