Family Ministry Director

Tim Peterson

Tim began his Youth Ministry at Bethel in July of 2017.  He comes to Bethel with his wife, Christal, and a lot of energy!  Tim uses a number of tools to develop individuals for service, growth, and mission.  Everything in place can be summed up in two main principles: Relational and/or Discipleship.  This group operates with complete openness and parents have a standing invitation to come to all events.  Not as chaperones, but as mentors living a Christian witness.
