Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministry equips ministry partners to provide confidential, one-on-one Christian care to individuals in the congregation and community who are struggling with life’s challenges or who are in crisis, such as grief, divorce, job loss, or chronic and terminal illness.

Bethany’s Stephen Ministers receive 50 hours of training through an international program and have been commissioned by our pastoral staff to offer weekly support. Each Stephen Minister is a dedicated, caring Christian who provides emotional and spiritual support. They are here to help you navigate life’s challenges, step-by-step.


Before You Divorce

Before You Divorce is a program that works towards restoring marriages that are threatened by divorce. This ministry supports couples to restore and rebuild trust and respect towards each other, so that their marriage may prosper.


Prayer Support

Are you in need of prayer? We believe that prayer is powerful and we have a dedicated prayer team that would like to lift up your needs to the Lord. Please fill out the prayer request form and we will add you to our prayer chain. Additionally, if you would like us to follow up with you, let us know and we will reach out to you.


Prepare For Marriage

Have you recently been engaged and looking to get married at Bethany? Bethany understands the importance of having a strong foundation for your marriage, so we require pre-marital counsel if you are planning to be married by a Bethany Church Pastor. Once you have met with the Pastor and confirmed your wedding date, we will connect you with a pre-marriage mentor couple. This couple will be available to meet with you on multiple occasions (usually 6 times), to help prepare you for your new life as a married couple. You’ll be amazed to find out about some things you’ve never considered, and things you’ve already covered well together. It’s an awesome opportunity.


Visitation Team

A cheerful, supportive visit is sometimes the perfect medicine to get someone through the day. We have a team of Bethany Church family members who consider it an honor to pay a visit to anyone hospitalized, residing in care facilities or in their homes. Team members offer prayer, encouragement and friendly conversation.

Support Groups
