For the past 25 years Bethany has served as a full-time missionary with Child Evangelism Fellowship of New Hampshire where she has taught God’s Word to children of all ages, has prepared curriculum for all of their ministries and has trained volunteers so the Word of God could be spread even farther. Bethany has also taught in a Christian preschool and has taught the preschool children’s church class in her local church for 32 years. Her passion for teaching God’s Word to children and her love of preschoolers are two factors that have kept her motivated to remain faithful throughout the years. The main factor, however, is her love for God and her life verse – “What shall I return to the Lord for all his goodness to me?” Psalm 116:12. Continuing her service to God as the director of Joyful Footsteps Preschool, Bethany is excited to help the children understand what a wonderful Savior they have.

Bethany lives in Laconia with her cousin, Laura. While continuing to worship and serve in her home church, Bethany is also looking forward to getting to know the family of the Community Church of Alton. In her free time Bethany enjoys event planning, mysteries and spending time with friends and family.
