MINISTRY & LEADERSHIP TEAM

 
PASTOR: 
DAVE BROWER
My life was changed when certain people in my life took the time to introduce me to Jesus. They modeled the life of faith and invested their time to help me develop my own faith. It is because of those people that I am a minister today. Following Jesus changes our lives (John 10:10). My passion is to help people know, love, and follow Jesus.

YOUTH PASTOR: 
SPENCER ROW
Youth ministry has become what makes me. I make sure that when I meet people for the first time, they can tell right  off the bat that I’m a follower of God. That He not only lives in me, but through me and my actions as well. This is the goal of my ministry, and what I try to instill in the youth. My goal and vision set out by God is to see that these kids develop a lasting relationship with Christ that extends far past the walls of the church. Thinking back when I was a youth in high school, I now realize how critical these times for the youth are. They need truth to grab onto, and assurance to never let go.

 CHILDRENS PASTOR: 
DIANE SHAW
My passion and purpose is to introduce children to Jesus in an authentic, kid-friendly way through everything we do. I have been working with kiddos as a classroom teacher and/or children’s ministry director for 14 years, and I absolutely believe that there is no greater privilege than getting to come alongside parents and grandparents, friends and relatives in the spiritual formation of your children.
Vickie
 
PROGRAM DIRECTOR: 
VICKIE ELLIS
My position as program director at Bethesda was Gods idea.  I had been a nurse in Labor and Delivery for nearly 30 years.  I was beginning to think of retirement when Pastor Brady brought the idea of program director to me.  Gods perfect plan.  I loved the people at Bethesda the first day I attended and that has continued for over 10 years.  I feel like I am serving, assisting others with their ministry to serve God.  I absolutely love what I do.  I am truly blessed.

MUSICIAN: 
CHRISTY BEYNON
Serving the Lord through the ministry of music is a joy and a responsibility that I take very seriously. I desire for my life to be an offering of worship to the Lord, whether in my job as a teacher or as a wife to my amazing husband, Dan, or as a mom to our boys, Cort and Jace.
Matt
 
YOUTH WORSHIP LEADER: MATT ROW
Through my ministry as a Youth Worship Leader, nothing excites me more to see children and adults laying it all down to sing and praise our Lord. I love teaching the youth who sing alongside me in the praise band and watching them mature in their relationship with God. I truly feel blessed to be apart of this family and the ministries for Bethesda UMC.
