  • Congregational Connections

    Congregations who nurture young pastors form a ministry bond with the Bethany Fellows and Leaders as they realize their church will be the beneficiary of this ministry. Many of our incoming Fellows receive scholarships from their congregations, some receiving the full investment of $5000 per year and others receiving scholarships amounting to about half of the annual costs. And increasing number of congregations include Bethany Fellows in their Outreach budgets or offer special occasion gifts. All scholarships and other contributions are greatly appreciated. 

  • Alum Gifts

    Grateful pastors do not easily forget the coaching/mentoring that helped “save their souls,” and find amazingly creative ways to express their gratitude. Many support Bethany financially and encourage their congregations to consider gifts as well.

  • Legacies, Bequests and Wills

    If you would like to offer a Special Gift to Bethany Fellows to commemorate a pastor’s special anniversary, celebrate a joyful church occasion, appreciate the faithful work of a ministry leader, or make a memorial gift, contact Kim Gage Ryan at or (573)489-2729.

    By networking with Christian Church Foundation, Bethany has resources available to assist those wishing to leave a leadership legacy through their will or a special bequest. Gary Straub will assist to bring wishes to action. Contact Gary at or (502) 320-2452.
