• Chad Brannan- Pastor

    My family and I came to New Bethel Baptist in 2017. We feel God has truly led us here to be a part of this wonderful church and community. It is an incredible honor and privilege to serve as pastor here and it is great to see the Lord working in and through so many loving and faithful people. My wife, Carrie, and I have three boys: Riley, Patrick, and Tyler.  In my spare time I enjoy reading and spending time in the outdoors hiking, backpacking, and hunting. As pastor, I believe it is a great responsibility to preach and teach the Scriptures to others and I strive faithfully to do so in a way that holds true to the entire Gospel Message given to us by God’s revealed Word. It is my hope that you would prayerfully consider joining us for worship as we seek to grow together in unity and likeness unto Christ. My favorite Bible verse is Proverbs 3:5-6- “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”

  • Robert Strunk- Youth Minister

    I enjoy ministering here at New Bethel. It is exciting to see the adults, children, and youth who are coming to know Christ as their personal Savior and it is fun to see new faces each week worshiping with us. My wife, Lisa, and I have three children: Nathan, Emma, and Jonathon. The younger two, keep us very busy with various sports and activities while our oldest is constantly coming up with new recipes and adventures for the family. In my spare time, I like to read books, watch movies, and learn about history. My hobbies include music and woodworking which are a big part of who I am and have come in handy in my ministerial life. I would love to know how I can minister to you and your student here at New Bethel. My favorite verse is Romans 8:18- “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is going to be revealed to us.”

  • Stacey Griffin- Music Minister

    I love my family! We are a blended family full of challenges and there is never a dull moment. My wonderful wife, Tammy, is the most important piece in our puzzle. Our two little grandchildren, Alayah and Isaac live with us, but we receive help from our two teenage girls, Bethany and Kairos, as well. Tammy and I also have three older children, Cana, Josiah, and Hannah who no longer live with us. My hobbies include work, church, and child transportation. What excites me most about our church is leading our choir and how much Brother Chad loves the Lord and preaches Jesus every Sunday. My favorite Bible verse is John 9:25- “He answered and said, whether He is a sinner or not I do not know. One thing I know; that though I was blind, now I see.”

    I am excited about the future here at New Bethel. What excites me the most is the people. I love the members here and all the families that have chosen to worship with us and I especially love the kiddos! The children are where my heart is. I have grown up here at New Bethel and have always felt loved. I love doing things with the children whether its Sunday School, Team Kid or VBS, I just love hanging with the kids. I want them to feel loved and to know that Jesus loves them most of all. My family is important to me as well. My husband Ron, and I, have two sons: Scotty and his wife Audrey live in Fredericksburg, Va. with our grandson Liam and our youngest son, Shawn, lives at home with us. I love to cook and especially for the holidays, I love to bake, decorate and fix big meals for the boys. When I have time, I love to craft too. My favorite Bible verse is John 3:16-  “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
