Administrative Assistant: Bethany Keaton

Bethany was born a northerner (from Indiana), but she claims the south as her home.  She was raised in a pastor's home and her parents' ministry brought their family from Cincinnati, OH to Spartanburg, SC in 2002.  She grew up with three brothers, learning quickly to fend for herself as the only girl.  She attended Dorman High School and Spartanburg Methodist College.  

Bethany enjoys singing, sports, weekend visits to the lake, trying new recipes and most of all making memories with her family and friends.  Her favorite Bible verse is Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you says the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." 

Bethany has work experience in medical and insurance offices and is now looking forward to a new adventure here in the church office.  She is excited to see what God has in store for the next chapter of her life.
