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

    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.

    Christians know what Jesus Christ has done―but who is he? What is his deepest heart for his people, weary and faltering on their journey toward heaven? Jesus said he is “gentle and lowly in heart.” This book reflects on these words, opening up a neglected yet central truth about who he is for sinners and sufferers today.
