Bethany’s Vision of Worship
Bethany is a diverse church family that delights in uniting together to express praise to God in worship that is fueled by God’s Word and open to the Spirit’s active and powerful presence.

Vision for Worship Director
Bethany Baptist Church is looking for a part-time worship director who will engage our congregation in inspiring and relevant worship.
