The Men’s Ministry at Bethany is designed to encourage and exhort men to be leaders in their home, church, and community. Various ministries, classes, Bible studies, and small groups are regularly offered for this purpose of showing men how to mature and lead effectively. Men are also routinely being discipled and mentored in the context of their leadership development including, but not limited to, the training needed to serve the church in the offices of deacon and elder. Retreats, conferences, and breakfast fellowships are also structured into the overall strategy for coming alongside men in order to help them grow spiritually. For more information email

    The Pilgrim's Progress: A Guided Tour

    A Timeless Story of Faith

    The Pilgrim’s Progress, written by John Bunyan over 300 years ago, is one of the most widely-circulated books ever to be published in the English language. In spite of its popularity in the past, many people today are not familiar with this masterpiece. Join the men of Bethany Bible Church as Dr. Derek Thomas leads us in his DVD guided tour of this allegorical work, showing that Christians have as much to gain from this book today as they did hundreds of years ago. 

    Join us and journey with Christian as he navigates the “Christian life” with its trials and struggles and gains. We have two options depending on your schedule. Come, grow in friendships with other men of Bethany and be equipped to better understand our journey of faith

    Our current study is 50 Core Truths of the Christian Faith. Author Gregg Allison unpacks fifty key doctrines of the Christian faith in a clear, engaging way and provides guidance for how to accurately teach them. He also explains how each doctrine connects to daily life, because he believes that Christian doctrine is not only true belief but also true practice.
