Outreach at bethany
thoughtfully giving of ourselves and our resources to bless other people
Following Jesus to the fullest includes thoughtfully giving of ourselves and our resources to bless other people.
At Bethany, we’re committed to investing significantly and strategically in local and global initiatives designed for the betterment of others.
Bethany’s local outreach efforts are designed to foster meaningful connections between our congregation and individuals, groups, and organizations in our community.
We believe relationships are most often the setting the Spirit uses to draw people to Jesus. We provide training opportunities in relational evangelism to prepare our people for everyday opportunities to befriend others. We encourage the Bethany community to engage in redemptive conversations and relationships as a reminder of our corporate commitment to personal evangelism
We seek to be regularly involved in blessing our local community. We have long-standing partnerships with local Christian and community organizations that address poverty and homelessness, crisis pregnancy, single mothers in transition, foster care and adoption, teen mothers, and after-school evangelism programs. We have a passion to serve our neighborhood, specifically the area between Peoria Avenue to the North, Arizona Route 51 to the East, Thomas Road to the South, and I-17 to the West.
awareness of the marginalized
Among our core values is a commitment to be “where the line is short.” Wherever the faith community is not heavily involved, that is where we want to be. Specifically, we are appropriately and sensitively involved in serving those marginalized by realities such as commercial human trafficking, under-resourced schools, and the commercial sex industry.
In addition, we partner with the following local organizations through regular financial support and periodic volunteerism:
Through numerous partnerships and multiple short-term groups serving in cross-cultural settings, we participate in God’s creative Kingdom building efforts around the world.
We seek to focus our commitments—both in number of partnerships and dollars invested—in “front line” ministry efforts within our priority areas of church planting, evangelism, and discipleship/education.
Short term missions
Interested in participating in a short-term mission trip? Bethany has the following trips planned for 2020:
June 26 – July 6
Our team will teach a week of English class for adults (both intermediate and advanced English) as an outreach effort of a small evangelical church in a suburb of Frankfurt (Bergen-Enkheim). Unchurched adults and church members will be together in these classes for the week and the church will leverage these new relationships evangelically in the weeks and months after our classes are over. This team is currently full.
July 2 – July 12
Our team will be partnering with Newtownbreda Baptist Church through a week-long Sports Camp for kids, which will reach out to hundreds of kids and their families in the surrounding community. The team will also be involved in street evangelism and outreach with the hopes of spreading the gospel and helping people connect with local churches. This team is currently full.
July 31 – August 8
This medical missions team is partnering with Global CHE to provide basic medical clinics in a remote region of the country. Our teams serve as part of a broader process of ongoing physical and spiritual care by indigenous ministry personnel.
