Meet Our Staff

Our leaders provide Bethlehem Church with the direction and encouragement to keep the organization moving forward and expanding in new areas as God directs. 


Reverend Tim Heath and his family began their ministry at Bethlehem on 6-19-16. We are excited to see what God will do as we move forward in obedience to the call God has placed on our ministry. 


Pastor Tim and his wife Gail have compassionate hearts for ministering to the membership and the surrounding communities.
