Pastor John and Kelly Bechtel
Bethel Kids Pastors
John worked at Adult & Teen Challenge for nine years before he and Kelly joined Bethel in April 2018. He is a credentialed minister with the Assemblies of God. Kelly ministered to children for 17 years in New Jersey before marrying John in 2014, and she is excited to be back in kids ministry! They have three beautiful children and one on the way. Their mission statement is, “Giving kids the Message of trust in Jesus, Modeling it, and Mentoring them.” Their vision is to see kids Accept Christ and become Powerful in Prayer, Responsive in Worship, Spirit Empowered, Biblically Fluent, Actively Serving, Bold in Faith, Giving Selflessly, and Living like Christ!
