Bethany Asks "Can I Get a Witness?" in Columbus

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

The Bethany community presented a variety of events at Annual Conference centered around the theme of witnessing, reflecting both the message of 1 John 1:1-2 and the Conference theme,
"Live as Courageous Disciples."

Many visitors to the Bethany exhibit added their voices to the conversation by writing responses to questions about discipleship:
     "Through what scripture text has Jesus been calling you to a deeper discipleship?"    - Nancy Heishman, Moderator
     "My witness is seen, heard, and felt when I . . ."    - Jeff Carter, President of Bethany Seminary

Read the responses shared by Brethren sisters and brothers!

JenniferWhen my husband, parents, and I arrived at Bethany Theological Seminary for my long-awaited visit, I was giddy, to say the least! My whole life led to that moment and that weekend. I could not believe my dream was coming true! From the moment we arrived, we were treated with the utmost respect and hospitality. Not only did the staff and faculty put together an amazing weekend for me, they welcomed my questions, comments, or concerns we had and did it with complete openness which shined through in every person we visited. Everyone had a genuine interest in me, my husband, and my life. I truly felt like each person wanted to help me be sure this is where I was meant to be. I had the opportunity to sit in several classes, which was an absolutely remarkable and enlightening opportunity that only affirmed how excited I am to sit in those classes myself. In addition, I had the opportunity to visit with current students and recent graduates, getting a true sense of how Bethany affects and changes a person's life.
