Pastor & Staff


Pastor Andrew (Andy) Jagow was installed on February 4, 2007, as Bethany’s fourth full-time pastor. We thank God for choosing him to shepherd our congregation. Pastor Andy is married to wife Kathy and they have two children. To find out more about Pastor Andy and Bethany, visit his Web log at http://revjagow.blogspot.com/.

Reverend Joseph B. Davis and his family came to Bethany from Maryland in 2004. On January 8, 2012, he was ordained and installed as Special Mission Pastor with emphasis on the African Immigrant Ministry (AIM). Reverend Davis is married to Aletha (shown in photo) with six children. He is very thankful for God's many blessings.

Kimberly Savage, Administrative Secretary, is the friendly voice who answers the phone and manages the Bethany Church offices, making sure everything runs smoothly. If you have any questions pertaining to the calendar, upcoming events, need to add something to the bulletin, or would just like some general information on the church schedule, she's the one to contact.

Olivia Taylor (shown with family) is Director of Bethany Lutheran Preschool. She has a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree in Education. Additionally, she has over 10 years of teaching experience and some experience in human resources. Many visitors and preschool families appreciate the warm and nurturing atmosphere of our preschool. It's a place where God's love grows in the children and their teachers.

Linda Hemphill, Bethany’s Director of Music, coordinates the music for Bethany’s worship services. She has over 50 years' experience as a church musician, the last 20 of which have been at Bethany, where she directs four choirs (two for children, two for adults). Some Sundays she is the proverbial one-armed paper hanger, directing bells, children and/or adult voices, instruments and playing the pipe organ– all with a smile on her face and a love for the Lord shining through.
