Bethany Fellowship of Churches
Global Partnership Ministries is a ministry of the Bethany Fellowship of Churches in Peoria, Illinois and is governed by an Advisory Team accountable to the Board of Elders.
The Bethany Fellowship of Churches (BFC) is our sending church where Global Partnership Ministries was birthed in May, 2011 at the urging of the senior pastors and elders. We have been one of BFC’s supported missionaries since 2001. Gary served on staff at Bethany Baptist Church from 1979-1985 and our family continues to attend and be involved. We helped launch Bethany’s first church plant, Living Hope Community Church in Bartonville, Illinois, which held its first service on Easter Sunday in 2003. We serve as members of the Living Hope Community Church.
