About Bethany


At Bethany, we empower leaders of faith through the integration of wisdom, theology, and the arts that point us towards just peace, curious intellect, and wild hope. Our teaching flows from our unique Anabaptist-Pietist heritage and tradition known as the Church of the Brethren. The Church of the Brethren offers a unique blend of practicality and spirituality grounded in service and simple living, reconciliation and peacemaking, scripture and community. It is through this lens for which we hope you create faithful, prophetic change in this blessed, but broken world.

Jeff Foster
(Certificate of Achievement in Theological Studies)

JeffFor nine years I felt the leading of God to ministry. I began my academic journey thinking that I had God all figured out. This journey began at Moody Bible Institute for several semesters, where I gleaned perspective on missions and evangelism. Because of a full-time missionary role, I suspended Moody classes to concentrate on raising support. During that time God began to speak to me about the overall disunity in our Christian church. I came to the conclusion that unity within the body of Christ is the best way to reach lost souls with greater depth. I started exploring the Anabaptist teaching and specifically the way the Church of the Brethren strives toward this vision of unity and reconciliation.
