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.

Have questions?

Local Outreach

Bethany’s local outreach efforts are designed to foster meaningful connections between our congregation and individuals, groups, and organizations in our community.

Relationally focused

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

community minded

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.

partner organizations

In addition, we partner with the following local organizations through regular financial support and periodic volunteerism:

Global Outreach

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.
