Elder Michael chose Bethel for two reasons: 1) Pastor Seesun and his Biblical teachings and 2) the intimate community.

At Bethel we want to encourage and equip the members so that we can all mature as servants of Christ reaching out to the world with the gospel of Jesus. I would love to see our church continue to grow in Christ-likeness, doing what glorifies God and all the while enjoying our relationship with Him."
