Reaching a City to Touch the World
Over the years, Bethel has helped support over 50 missionaries in more than 15 countries. We’ve also helped to plant new churches in cities in America and across the world, including New York, Boston, Dallas, Orlando, Auckland and Melbourne.
Many of our missionaries we cannot feature here, because their efforts to carry the message of hope through Jesus Christ to the "ends of the earth" carries the risk of their imprisonment or death.
Below are many of our missionaries who are obeying Jesus' command to, "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations..." SCROLL DOWN FOR MORE INFORMATION.
We encourage your to Pray for our missionaries, and consider supporting them as they go into all the world and preach the Gospel.
