Global and Local Partnerships

Global and Local Outreach Vision: We desire to see the local church established in places where it does not exist and built up in places where it is young, weak, or persecuted while helping the body of believers at Bethany Community Church grow in their understanding of God’s heart for the nations and as we actively live it out through proclaiming Jesus Christ as Lord and preparing His people to worship Him forever.
