What to Expect

We are eager for you to join us for a worship service! Our weekly gatherings are characterized by an eagerness to encounter the living God together in the context of prayer, singing, the preaching of the Gods word, and fellowship with each other.

The content of the gospel shapes our services. Each week, as we gather for corporate worship, we celebrate the gospel of Jesus Christ with a four-fold order of service: 1) God is holy, 2) We are sinful, 3) Jesus saves, and 4) Jesus sends. Through Scripture reading, prayer, and singing, we rehearse this gospel and confess the unsurpassable worth of Jesus Christ. We then continue in worship as we hear Gods word through preaching.

At the Saturday evening service, the preaching pastor gives the sermon in person. On several Sundays each month, we see a video recording of the sermon, while the preaching pastor is live at another campus. See our Preaching Schedule.

After the service, you will have an opportunity to pray with a pastor or prayer team member. Sunday morning coffee and pastries are served in the Main Hall. All are invited to linger and connect!

Campus Pastors & Leaders

Bud Burk

Bud Burk

Pastor for Children & Family Discipleship, Downtown

bud.burk@bethlehem.church | 612-338-7653 x486

Bud Burk lived in Southern California until he came to Bethlehem in January 2008.

He was born into a believing family who worshiped at a Brethren Church in East Los Angeles. There was evidence of drawing grace in the early years of his life, but it was not until his late high school years that he learned the good and hard experience of conviction of sin along with the wondrous joy of being loved by God in Christ Jesus. Although it is difficult for Bud to pinpoint exactly when he was born again, one thing he knows for sure: “Today, by God’s grace, I trust in Jesus Christ and his work for me on the cross.”

In 1985, Bud received Bachelors in Christian Education from Biola University in La Mirada, California. After graduation, Bud went to work in his family’s steel fabrication business while becoming actively involved in ministry to children at Whittier Hills Baptist Church.

The 13 years that followed were formative years. The Lord gave Bud a passion for ministry to children and young families that became evident over time to the leadership of the church. His responsibilities there grew. He was eventually offered an internship, and later was called to serve as Pastor of Parent and Children’s Discipleship (1998–2007).

During those years, and now at Bethlehem, Bud has received great measures of God’s persevering grace upon him in Christ, enabling him to continue on the trajectory of learning ministry life among people. His primary longing is to see Jesus’ face and to help others long to see him too. This is especially so for parents and their children.

Bud and his wife, Lisa, have been married since 1987 and are quick to offer God thanksgiving for so many years of grace. They have two children, Tom and Charlotte.

Ken Currie

Ken Currie

Lead Pastor for Downtown & Strategic Implementation

ken.currie@bethlehem.church | 612-338-7653 x486

Ken came to faith in Jesus Christ while a student at University of West Georgia. As a result, Ken has a passionate desire to see college students come to Christ, grow in a God-centered worldview, and labor in the lives of others. After graduation, Ken took a staff position with Campus Outreach in South Georgia for four years. Ken then began Campus Outreach in Greenville, South Carolina, where the Curries lived for 10 years (1994–2003).

In August 2003, Ken came to Bethlehem to direct the college ministry at Bethlehem through Campus Outreach Minneapolis.

In July 2011, the congregation approved the elders recommendation that Ken Currie also become Lead Pastor for Outreach, and so had the additional responsibility to oversee, shape, protect, and trumpet Bethlehem’s church-wide vision for outreach.

In January 2013, the congregation approved the elders recommendation that Ken hand over his Campus Outreach Minneapolis responsibilities to another and take up the role of Pastor for Strategic Implementation. He added Campus Pastor to his responsibilities in October 2016.

Ken’s wife, Theresa, also came to Christ as a student at University of West Georgia and shares his commitment to raise up students who love Jesus and are burdened for the world around them. Ken & Theresa have five children: Hannah, Taylor, Kenzie, Emily, and Austin.

Jason Meyer

Jason Meyer

Pastor for Preaching & Vision

jason.meyer@bethlehem.church | 612-338-7653 x476

Jason is our Pastor for Preaching & Vision at Bethlehem. He is both a product of Bethlehem and clearly reflective of its “DNA” in his convictions and activities. He has a visible love for God, for his Word, and for shepherding people.

Jason also deeply loves his family. Jason has been married to his wife, Cara, since 1999 and they have four children. Their two girls are Gracie and Allie and their two boys are Jonathan and David. During the Spring semester of 2010, Jason taught at the Evangelical Theological College of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, while he and Cara completed the adoption of their two sons from Ethiopia.

Jason testifies that he accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior when he was 12 years old, as he came to understand God’s gracious work of salvation. Throughout his high school and college years, the Lord progressively subdued Jason’s heart and affections, and claimed his heart as His throne. The watershed experience of Jason’s life occurred in his sophomore year of college, when God called him to ministry. Prior to this point, he had never even remotely desired to be in full-time ministry. After this point, ministry became the consuming desire of his heart. God has equipped Jason through the Holy Spirit, godly mentors, and college and seminary training for service in the kingdom as a herald of the gospel. Jason is driven by a supreme and overarching passion for God’s glory. Through the proclamation of the gospel of God in word and deed, he desires to see the worship of God spread to all the nations of the world.

This passion for God’s glory drove Jason to go deep and hard in studying the gospel he holds so dearly! Jason holds a Doctor of Philosophy degree awarded in 2007 and a Master of Divinity degree in 2002—both from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. His Bachelor of Science degree was from Oklahoma Wesleyan in 1998. Notably, in terms of his Bethlehem “DNA,” he was a student (vocational elder training), apprentice, and teacher during the period from August 1999 to August 2001 at The Bethlehem Institute. While Jason loved the academic realm, he always found himself leaning toward the church at every step of the way.

God met that desire and gave Jason the opportunity to put his rigorous education into practice in many different contexts for the sake of the church.  He has served as Bethlehem College and Seminary's Associate Professor of New Testament. Prior to that, he served as Interim Pastor at the Parkway Baptist Church of Natchez, Mississippi. In this capacity, he preached Sunday morning and Sunday night sermons. Before that, he provided Pulpit Supply and Teaching for the Louisiana Baptist Convention and served as the preacher and Dean of Chapel at Louisiana College. From 2002 to 2006 he was Pastor of the Orville Baptist Church of Pleasureville, Kentucky, and during the summer of 2001 he taught at the Cameroon Baptist Theological Seminary in Africa.

Bryan Pickering

Bryan Pickering

Pastor for Care & Counseling, Downtown

bryan.pickering@bethlehem.church | 612-338-7653 x489

Bryan and Debby were married in 1996. They grew up in Richmond, Virginia. They have seven children: David (2005), Olivia (2007), Theia Joy (2008), Elsa (2010), Ana Hope (now with the Lord), Ileana (2013), Isaiah (2015). In 2005, they became members of Bethlehem and have lived in the Phillips neighborhood in Minneapolis since 2005. Bryan enjoys being with Debby and his kids, talking to people—walking with them through the good, the hard, and the bad of life—personal ministry, training and equipping others for counseling, discipleship, reading, teaching, music, fishing, football, and exploring the Twin Cities with family and friends.

Bryan has an undergraduate degree in Biblical Studies and the History of Ideas from Southeastern College in Wake Forest, North Carolina. He has earned Levels One, Two, and Three certificates from the Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation (CCEF), and holds a master’s degree in Biblical Counseling from Northland International University in Dunbar, Wisconsin. During 2008–2013, he served as a non-vocational elder at the Downtown Campus of Bethlehem Baptist Church. Bryan is the former Director of Redemption: Twin Cities (a biblical counseling ministry of Bethlehem Urban Initiatives), where he served from June 2014 to April 2017.

Testimony

Through the means of reading the Bible and while attending a church in 1995, I learned that God had enacted a divine rescue plan for sinners like me. By God’s grace, I discovered that although I was without any hope of saving myself—I was dead in his trespasses and sins—God sent his own Son to take on human flesh; to live a perfect life of active obedience; to die a substitutionary, atoning death on the cross on my behalf; and then to rise triumphantly out of the grave.

Jesus took the wrath that I deserved. He took his sin on himself, though he himself never sinned. God gave me eyes to see that Jesus alone is my righteousness. And God gave me a new heart to believe in and trust his gracious provision of Jesus: the Spotless, Perfect, Lamb of God. He caused me to be born again. Though I am weak, frail, and still sin, the Lord is at work in me to fulfill his promise to complete the work he began—to conform me fully into the image of Jesus. I rejoice in the reality that Jesus is mine—and I am his—forever.

Richie Stark

Richie Stark

Pastoral Resident for Youth & Family Discipleship

richie.stark@bethlehem.church | 612-338-7653 x498

Richie was adopted out of the foster care system by the Stark family at the age of 6. Shortly after his adoption, Richie learned of his sin, the penalty of his sin and called on Jesus Christ to save him.

Growing up in the Madison, Wisconsin, area, Richie developed a love for athletics. In high school he lettered in three sports: track and field, basketball, and men’s volleyball. His still loves athletics, especially golf, but at the age of 21 he felt the call to ministry and applied to Moody Bible Institute to be trained in youth ministry.

It was at Moody where Richie gained a deep passion for the Glory of Christ to be exalted among the nations. He realized the importance of solid hermeneutics and biblical exegesis and how that discipline made him grow in his affections for Christ. After graduation in 2001 Richie has worked with students as a youth pastor, teacher, athletic director and coach. In May 2016 Richie graduated from Covenant Theological Seminary with an M.A. in Biblical Exegesis.

Richie is married to Nicki and they have three children, Teo, Eliano, and Anissa.

Mike Tong

Mike Tong

Pastor for Neighborhood Outreach, Downtown

mike.tong@bethlehem.church | 612-338-7653 x451

Mike Tong was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico, to Taiwanese parents in 1979. At the age of 5, the Lord opened Mike's eyes to his need for a Savior—a Savior that he loves greatly, Jesus Christ. At the age of 11, Mike heard the Lord's calling to full-time ministry.  

After growing up in Southern California, that calling brought Mike to complete his BA in International Ministries and Applied Linguistics at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago. Before being called by the elder board to serve on the staff, Mike had been a lay member of Bethlehem for four years while working at Desiring God. During that time, the Lord gave Mike a deep desire to see the body of Bethlehem come together and love one another.

Mike is married to Catherine and has three kids, Christian, Juliana, & Pearl. Catherine works part time as an art teacher at Hope Academy.

Jared Wass

Jared Wass

Pastor for Small Groups, Downtown

jared.wass@bethlehem.church | 612-338-7653 x440

Jared grew up in a Christian home in Denver, Iowa. He came to faith in Christ through a sermon at church around the age of 10.

In 1996, after six years of flickering faith during high school and the first part of college, God brought revival to Jared through a campus ministry. Through the next years of college, he was established in his faith and equipped to share the gospel and personally disciple others through The Navigators.

After college, Jared spent two years teaching middle school Social Studies and coaching high school basketball. In 2003, he joined the staff of The Navigators and worked in college ministry for five years, spending time at Iowa State University and at the University of Wisconsin–Eau Claire. During this time he met and married his wife, Amy.

In 2008, Jared joined Bethlehem’s Campus Outreach Minneapolis as Mobilization Director and became a member of the church. In 2015, Jared transitioned out of his role in Campus Outreach to become Pastor of Small Groups, Downtown. Jared & Amy have three boys: Josiah, Owen, and Micah.

Matthew Westerholm

Matthew Westerholm

Pastor for Worship & Music, Downtown

matthew.westerholm@bethlehem.church | 612-338-7653 x426

Matthew’s father is a pastor, and Matthew was raised in a Christian home. He testifies that his mother explained the gospel when he was 5 years old, and by faith, he responded. His understanding of the gospel increased as he grew.

Matthew received his BA (Music/Church Music) from Trinity International University, and his MA (Systematic Theology) from Grand Rapids Theological Seminary, and his PhD (Christian Worship) from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. His 2016 dissertation explored the intersection of evangelical eschatology and congregational singing.

Matthew serves as Pastor for Worship and Music, Downtown at Bethlehem and Assistant Professor of Worship and Music at Bethlehem College and Seminary. These roles involve overseeing the worship ministry for the church’s historic Downtown Campus and teaching in the seminary’s worship pastor track.  Before moving to Minneapolis, he served at Cornerstone University in Grand Rapids, Michigan, as Dean of the Chapel and Director of Worship Arts (2008-2013) and as a worship pastor at Harvest Bible Chapel in Rolling Meadows, Illinois (1998–2008).

Matthew has written many songs for congregational worship. His song, “The First Place,” has been published in several collections, including the 2013 RCA/CRC hymnal, Lift Up Your Hearts: Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual Songs. Other songs have appeared in Worship Leader Magazine’s SongSelect and on the album, “Live Worship from Vertical Church” for Provident Records.

With Dr. Joel Beeke, Matthew has co-written a chapter on the Lord’s Supper for A Puritan Theology: Doctrine for Life (Grand Rapids: RHB, 2012). He has published in the Puritan Reformed Journal and Themelios. He has contributed articles for Desiring GOD, The Gospel Coalition, and Doxology and Theology. He has presented workshops on worship for the StraightUp Conference, Calvin’s Institute of Christian Worship symposium, the Desiring God Pastor’s Conference, the Canvas Conference, and the Doxology and Theology conference.

John Piper has said, “People are starving for the greatness of God.” Matthew’s passion is to champion the glory of God and help people encounter that glory in a week-to-week, moment-to-moment way by ensuring that when the corporate body gathers together, the greatness of God is seen and savored.

Matthew loves classic and modern jazz, comic books, and Chicago sports.  While he feels comfortable behind a piano, he only feels at home with his wife Lisa and their three boys: Ethan John (2002), Owen Samuel (2004), and Levi Daniel (2007).

    He also serves as Area Director to develop Christian Business Leaders Peer Forums, consisting of “business owners and professionals lit up by Christ, glorifying God in their life, business, and extended marketplace.”

    Expository teaching, involvement with unreached people groups in Kenya, and the books Don’t Waste Your Life (by John Piper) and Heaven (by Randy Alcorn) have all had a major impact in his life. His life verses are Romans 12:1–2: “Present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind.”

    Don & Cynthia live in Plymouth, Minnesota, and are blessed with two believing children and spouses, and six grandchildren as of 2017.

    God gave James the undeserved gift of a Christian home. His dad and mom taught him the Bible, prayed with him, and modeled lives of obedience to God. Around the age of six, the Spirit convicted James of his spiritual neediness and James cried out to Jesus to save him. Throughout James’s childhood and adolescence, he tried to follow and obey God, but always felt a sense of guilt over not doing enough to please him. Through the ministry of Campus Outreach at Northwestern College, James was introduced to the amazing reality that God’s disposition toward him was that of a loving father, because of what Christ had done, not because of what James could do for God.

    James and his wife Betsy have two children and have called Bethlehem their home church for the since 2006. They first attended the North Campus for five years, and they have now attended the Downtown Campus. James & Betsy have served as small group leaders since 2012 and have enjoyed watching God build up his church through the word, prayer, and living life together. James desires to see Bethlehem continue to be a place that proclaims the truth of Christ through the teaching of God’s word, through dependence on God in prayer, and through caring relationships that point one another to our Greatest Joy.

    Growing up in a Christian home, Tom came to know Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior while attending Vacation Bible School at age 8. He graduated from Taylor University in 1985, married Heather, and moved back to the Twin Cities to begin his career. The Lord led the Lutz family to Bethlehem in the late 1990s, and they became members shortly thereafter. Tom served as an elder. In September 2006, a brief job transfer brought Tom and his family to Michigan. Upon their return to Minnesota in 2008, Tom & Heather renewed their membership at Bethlehem. Tom has been involved in leading a small group in his home and in teaching Jr High Sunday School. He also enjoys meeting regularly with a group of men for accountability, encouragement, and studying God’s Word. Several books have made a great impact on him, including Faith in Future Grace (John Piper) and Money, Possessions & Eternity (Randy Alcorn), as has the teaching and preaching from both Romans and Hebrews.

    Testimony

    Through the means of reading the Bible and while attending a church in 1995, I learned that God had enacted a divine rescue plan for sinners like me. By God’s grace, I discovered that although I was without any hope of saving myself—I was dead in his trespasses and sins—God sent his own Son to take on human flesh; to live a perfect life of active obedience; to die a substitutionary, atoning death on the cross on my behalf; and then to rise triumphantly out of the grave.

    Jesus took the wrath that I deserved. He took his sin on himself, though he himself never sinned. God gave me eyes to see that Jesus alone is my righteousness. And God gave me a new heart to believe in and trust his gracious provision of Jesus: the Spotless, Perfect, Lamb of God. He caused me to be born again. Though I am weak, frail, and still sin, the Lord is at work in me to fulfill his promise to complete the work he began—to conform me fully into the image of Jesus. I rejoice in the reality that Jesus is mine—and I am his—forever.

     

    Brian Tabb

    Brian Tabb

    Elder, Academic Dean, Bethlehem College & Seminary

    brian.tabb@bethlehem.church

    God irresistibly called Brian at a young age to respond in faith to the gospel of Jesus Christ through the witness of his parents, and he was baptized at First Baptist Church in Norman, Oklahoma. During Brian's studies at Wheaton College, he fell in love with God’s word and expository preaching, and he sensed a strong calling to study and teach the Word. Brian and Kristin married in 2005 and moved to Minnesota for further training at The Bethlehem Institute (TBI Track 2). God has blessed the Tabbs with three children: JJ (2009), Julia (2011), and Judson (2014). Since 2009, Brian has served as Academic Dean and Assistant Professor of Biblical Studies at Bethlehem College & Seminary.

    Brian & Kristin have been members at Bethlehem’s Downtown Campus for 10 years and have served in various ministries, including small group membership and leadership, Jr & Sr High ministry, outreach, short-term ministry trips, nursery and children’s ministry, teaching TBI courses, and hosting Roseville Meetup gatherings. The Tabbs also served together on the Downtown Campus Global Outreach Committee. With God’s help, Brian serves as an elder to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ at Bethlehem (Ephesians 4:13).

    Rod was born in Los Angeles but did most of his growing up in the Minneapolis area. In the mid 1970s, he responded to the call of Christ while on a date by praying for forgiveness of his sins and submitting to the Lord. He later married the woman he was dating, Martha, and they currently have 7 children and 5 grandchildren.  

    Since coming to Bethlehem in 1989, they have been involved in leading a small group, teaching Sunday School classes, teaching at Wednesday Connection (Martha), and serving on the Elder Council (Rod). Rod works as a mechanical designer and lives in St. Louis Park. His passion is to promote a vibrant community of mature followers of Jesus at Bethlehem.

    Mike Tong

    Elder; Pastor for Neighborhood Outreach, Downtown

    mike.tong@bethlehem.church | 612-338-7653 x451

    Mike Tong was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico, to Taiwanese parents in 1979. At the age of 5, the Lord opened Mike's eyes to his need for a Savior—a Savior that he loves greatly, Jesus Christ. At the age of 11, Mike heard the Lord's calling to full-time ministry.  

    After growing up in Southern California, that calling brought Mike to complete his BA in International Ministries and Applied Linguistics at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago. Before being called by the elder board to serve on the staff, Mike had been a lay member of Bethlehem for four years while working at Desiring God. During that time, the Lord gave Mike a deep desire to see the body of Bethlehem come together and love one another.

    Mike is married to Catherine and has three kids, Christian, Juliana, & Pearl. Catherine works part time as an art teacher at Hope Academy.

    Jared Wass

    Jared Wass

    Elder; Pastor for Small Groups, Downtown

    jared.wass@bethlehem.church | 612-338-7653 x440

    Jared grew up in a Christian home in Denver, Iowa. He came to faith in Christ through a sermon at church around the age of 10.

    In 1996, after six years of flickering faith during high school and the first part of college, God brought revival to Jared through a campus ministry. Through the next years of college, he was established in his faith and equipped to share the gospel and personally disciple others through The Navigators.

    After college, Jared spent two years teaching middle school Social Studies and coaching high school basketball. In 2003, he joined the staff of The Navigators and worked in college ministry for five years, spending time at Iowa State University and at the University of Wisconsin–Eau Claire. During this time he met and married his wife, Amy.

    In 2008, Jared joined Bethlehem’s Campus Outreach Minneapolis as Mobilization Director and became a member of the church. In 2015, Jared transitioned out of his role in Campus Outreach to become Pastor of Small Groups, Downtown. Jared & Amy have three boys: Josiah, Owen, and Micah.

    Matthew Westerholm

    Matthew Westerholm

    Elder; Pastor for Worship & Music, Downtown

    matthew.westerholm@bethlehem.church | 612-338-7653 x426

    Matthew’s father is a pastor, and Matthew was raised in a Christian home. He testifies that his mother explained the gospel when he was 5 years old, and by faith, he responded. His understanding of the gospel increased as he grew.

    Matthew received his BA (Music/Church Music) from Trinity International University, and his MA (Systematic Theology) from Grand Rapids Theological Seminary, and his PhD (Christian Worship) from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. His 2016 dissertation explored the intersection of evangelical eschatology and congregational singing.

    Matthew serves as Pastor for Worship and Music, Downtown at Bethlehem and Assistant Professor of Worship and Music at Bethlehem College and Seminary. These roles involve overseeing the worship ministry for the church’s historic Downtown Campus and teaching in the seminary’s worship pastor track.  Before moving to Minneapolis, he served at Cornerstone University in Grand Rapids, Michigan, as Dean of the Chapel and Director of Worship Arts (2008-2013) and as a worship pastor at Harvest Bible Chapel in Rolling Meadows, Illinois (1998–2008).

    Matthew has written many songs for congregational worship. His song, “The First Place,” has been published in several collections, including the 2013 RCA/CRC hymnal, Lift Up Your Hearts: Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual Songs. Other songs have appeared in Worship Leader Magazine’s SongSelect and on the album, “Live Worship from Vertical Church” for Provident Records.

    With Dr. Joel Beeke, Matthew has co-written a chapter on the Lord’s Supper for A Puritan Theology: Doctrine for Life (Grand Rapids: RHB, 2012). He has published in the Puritan Reformed Journal and Themelios. He has contributed articles for Desiring GOD, The Gospel Coalition, and Doxology and Theology. He has presented workshops on worship for the StraightUp Conference, Calvin’s Institute of Christian Worship symposium, the Desiring God Pastor’s Conference, the Canvas Conference, and the Doxology and Theology conference.

    John Piper has said, “People are starving for the greatness of God.” Matthew’s passion is to champion the glory of God and help people encounter that glory in a week-to-week, moment-to-moment way by ensuring that when the corporate body gathers together, the greatness of God is seen and savored.

    Matthew loves classic and modern jazz, comic books, and Chicago sports.  While he feels comfortable behind a piano, he only feels at home with his wife Lisa and their three boys: Ethan John (2002), Owen Samuel (2004), and Levi Daniel (2007).

  • Deacons
    Jeff Noyed

    Jeff Noyed

    Deacon

    1. Share your testimony. How did God draw you to faith in Christ?
      On Labor Day weekend of 1979, I came to Christ while watching a Billy Graham Crusade on TV. The Lord literally led me to Northwestern College in Roseville where I was able to receive an Associates of Arts and Bible and make many wonderful Christ-centered and transforming relationships with faculty and students.

    2. Tell us about your family and your relationship with your spouse and children. Does your spouse support your move toward becoming a deacon?
      Krista and I have been married for 27 years and have three children. During their years at Bethlehem, all the children came to Christ. Unfortunately one has strayed who is now in her 20's. Our family is not perfect, but we pray and connect with our children and in our marriage. Yes, Krista is supportive of me in the diaconal role.

    3. Do you agree with the Elder Affirmation of Faith and the Church Covenant? 
      Yes.

    4. When did you start attending Bethlehem?  
      1985. We left twice to help with church plants: Celebration Community Church and Jubilee Community Church.

    5. In what areas have you served at Bethlehem?  
      Small Group Leader, Helping Hand Committee, and Greeter

    6. Why are you eager to serve as a deacon at Bethlehem? 
      Years ago I was a deacon as a part of the Helping Hand Committee. It would be appropriate to be officially recognized as a deacon as I am still on the Helping Hand Committee and working as the Director of Jericho Road Ministries (a ministry of Bethlehem Urban Initiatives).

    Perry Ryan

    Perry Ryan

    Deacon

    1. Share your testimony. How did God draw you to faith in Christ?
      I was drawn to God mainly through his gift of my wife and our children. I grew up in a Catholic home with regular attendance to weekly church and catechism but no real knowledge of Christ, and definitely no relationship with Christ. When Michelle and I got married in 1992, we attended church regularly but my heart was not involved—it was just motions. As our kids started at a Christian school, we knew within us that God was drawing us to him and that we had to learn more and raise our children to follow Christ. This led us to Bible Study Fellowship (BSF) in about 2000–2001, which was our first in-depth study of God’s word. 

    2. Tell us about your family. Does your spouse support your move toward becoming a deacon? 
      I think initially Michelle was concerned only with any possible effects on family time and leading the household. She’s very supportive as long as it is not to the detriment of the family. 

    3. Do you agree with the Elder Affirmation of Faith and the Church Covenant? 
      Yes.

    4. When did you start attending Bethlehem?  
      We began attending in mid-2006, I believe.

    5. In what areas have you served at Bethlehem?  
      For the past four years, I have been a co-leader for the Bethlehem 5th & 6th Grade Sunday School. Previously, I served with Bible Study Fellowship as a small group discussion leader for four years. This role included shepherding a group of about 12 men with weekly phone calls, prayer for the group, and leading the discussion periods.

    6. Why are you eager to serve as a deacon at Bethlehem?
      I love Bethlehem Baptist Church. The Elders lead and oversee most areas in the church, but they may need another group of helpers/leaders to carry out tasks and duties; this is where I see deacons serving at Bethlehem. I’m grateful to God for what gifts he has given me and my family and am hopeful that he will continue to use me to serve him and his people. I enjoy serving and leading, and I owe everything to God for how he has been transforming me. Serving as a deacon feels like a natural God-led continuation of this process. 

    Bob Sarna

    Bob Sarna

    Deacon

    1. Share your testimony. How did God draw you to faith in Christ?
      At the age of 28, I was introduced to Linda, my future spouse. God’s providence brought us together. I needed Jesus and she needed a little help with family dynamics. I believe we helped each other see the truth of our sin. Linda spoke truth to me and the Holy Spirit worked on to my heart. One morning driving to work, I gave my life to the Lord. I did not have one of those “instant” transitions to a true Christian life. My view of God certainly changed, but it took several years before I came to a true understanding of who he actually is and what he actually did for me. 

    2. Tell us about your family. Does your spouse support your move toward becoming a deacon? 
      I love my wife, she is my best friend—I am the husband of one wife and can’t imagine life without her. Our home is open to all those that choose to enter; we love to cook for and entertain others—we are hospitable. I enjoy teaching, and I also believe that Linda and I keep our house in order, that our children love and respect us, and that they listen to our instruction. That’s not to say we haven’t had our challenges over the years! My wife is very supportive of my move toward becoming a deacon.                                              
    3. Do you agree with the Elder Affirmation of Faith and the Church Covenant? 
      Yes.

    4. When did you start attending Bethlehem?  
      We’ve been attending since 2007.

    5. In what areas have you served at Bethlehem?  
      I have worked with Pastor Bud Burk as a Sunday School teacher for 5th & 6th Graders for the last eight years. Earlier this year, I spoke with Pastor Bud and Richie Stark, and I have agreed to move to the youth basement and jointly teach Middle School students (Grades 6–8). I also serve in the Nursery with my wife on occasion. Additionally I lead the Thoms’ Barnabas Team and have lead the Meetup group in Minnetonka. Finally, I help with small projects around the church when asked.

    6. Why are you excited to serve as a deacon at Bethlehem? 
      It is my hope that in becoming a deacon I will be able to serve both the flock and the leaders. To the best of my ability, I want to help ensure that our church remains healthy—especially at the leadership level. I also believe that there are several areas of opportunity to assist and serve fellow brothers and sisters in our church. It is my belief that some need to be served while others simply need a little assistance getting through a tough time and/or with a project that they do not have the experience completing on their own. I hope to “come alongside” and help a brother out.

    Nathan Warriner

    Nathan Warriner

    Deacon

    1. Share your testimony. How did God draw you to faith in Christ?
      I was raised in a Christian home, so participating in the church life and responsibilities has always been a part of my life as long as I can remember. I made a personal profession of faith when I was in third grade and have always realized God’s influence in my life. I have been blessed to have evidence of God’s presence in my life through my relationships with my grandparents, parents, friends, mother-in-law, and my wife. I thank God for each of these pointers to him as a constant reminder of his love for me.  

    2. Tell us about your family. Does your spouse support your move toward becoming a deacon?
      I have been blessed with my wife, Renee, of more than 20 years, and two wonderful children (Wellsley, 13; Graham, 11). Bethlehem has been my church home for more than 20 years and the only church home my children have known. Currently I am enjoying the opportunity of sharing a love for serving the little ones with both of my children as they work with me in the nursery. Renee and I have had several opportunities to reach out to the church family in various unofficial capacities in our tenure at Bethlehem. Things like providing meals, help with moving, computer work, and providing rides, etc. 

    3. Do you agree with the Elder Affirmation of Faith and the Church Covenant?
      Yes and yes.

    4. When did you start attending Bethlehem?
      We started attending in the Spring of 1995. 

    5. In what areas have you served at Bethlehem?
      I have had the joy of serving in the nursery once a month for more than 20 years. I also had an early stint in the Prison Fellowship ministry as well as being a substitute in the elementary Sunday School classes. I have worked as a volunteer for various Bethlehem activities like Snow Day, and I have also done some IT support work for Jericho Road. 

    6. Why are you excited to serve as a deacon at Bethlehem?
      It is exciting to think about sharing Christ’s love for his people through his people. God has blessed each of us with many gifts, and I feel that by reaching out in a diaconal way allows us as a church to effectively share these gifts with others. On a personal level, I like working with Renee as a teammate and also as a way to show our children in a real way what it means to serve others in a loving way. I am also excited about the prospect of getting to know more of my brothers and sisters in Christ as we serve together for God’s glory. 

    Renee Warriner

    Renee Warriner

    Deacon; Receptionist, Downtown

    1. Share your testimony. How did God draw you to faith in Christ?
      Although not raised in a Christian home, God gave me the undeserved gift of spiritual eyes and heart to see and love our great God and loving Father. In a Vacation Bible School at the age of 11, the Spirit attested to my spiritual neediness and sinfulness. Among the family of God, I cried out to Jesus to save me from sin, death, and hell. Though my new faith wasn’t nurtured at home, God remembered me and he never let me forget that first bloom of faith, joy, and hope. Many years later, I was re-introduced to the loving Father of Luke 15:11–32.

    2. Tell us about your family. Does your spouse support your move toward becoming a deacon?
      We have two children (Wellsley & Graham) and have called Bethlehem our home church for the past 20 years. We have enjoyed watching God build up his church through the word, prayer, and living life together. Nate and I hope to become deacons together.

    3. Do you agree with the Elder Affirmation of Faith and the Church Covenant?
      I agree wholeheartedly with the Elder Affirmation of Faith and the Church Covenant.

    4. When did you start attending Bethlehem?
      We started attending in the Spring of 1995. 

    5. In what areas have you served at Bethlehem?
      I have served in the Nursery, and with MOMS, the Welcome Team, Jericho Road, and Women’s Bible Studies. I’m currently working as one of the Downtown Receptionists. As of January 2017, Nate and I, as a couple, have served a Downtown member by providing long-term practical care. Our hope is that he will be pointed to our Greatest Joy and feel the faithful love of the family of God.
    6. Why are you eager to serve as a deacon at Bethlehem?
      Nate and I are in agreement, support each other, and believe God’s calling us to diaconal ministry in accordance with 1 Timothy 3:8–13. With the power God allows, I want to faithfully, in word and deed, steward the gifts (1 Peter 4:10–11) that God has given me in meeting the practical needs of fellow believers and the church. I believe God can use me to point others to our Redeemer and provide encouragement to other travelers on the Calvary road.
