Ministry close to your heart?
Obviously, I would have to say our counseling ministry. There is nothing more rewarding or sanctifying then coming alongside of people as the Lord works in their lives; turning trials into all joy. Yet that process of “coming alongside of people” in one another-ing is a vital part of every ministry and purpose here at Bethany Community Church.

Finish this sentence: If I have a free afternoon, I can probably be found
Depends totally on the season, if its spring or summer I’ll be outside, whether its to go on a run or hangout by a pool. I’m all outdoors. If its winter, a good cup of coffee, an even better book, a warm blanket and a fireplace is where you’ll find me.

What is a Scripture verse that is meaningful to you?
I would have to say Galatians 2:20 has been my long-term one. It reminds me so often, how in and of myself I can do nothing, but Christ who lives in me.
