Bethel tithes 15% of its planned giving to Outreach ministries.

The Outreach Team consists of approximately 10 people who pray, guide and assist how best to dedicate our time / talent / resources for local, national, and international needs.

Each member of Bethel is part of Bethel’s Outreach Ministries called to Acts of Service in Jesus’ name.
