  • Pastor Jeff Anderson

    Senior Pastor


    or 309-276-7650

    Pastor Jeff (PJ) has served at Bethel since 2003. He and his wife Renata have 3 grown children.  He serves as pastor at Bethel, focusing on providing opportunities for the people to mature in their walk with Christ, that they might find ways to be a blessing to other people.  Bethel is an incredible gathering of people, who in the midst of their busy lives, still strive to grow from their baptisms into mature people in Christ.  As they grow, they minister to each other and to those who do not yet know Jesus that His love and His truth might be known.

  • Pastor Greg Moyer

    Associate Pastor


    Pastor Greg has served at Bethel since December 2018. He and his wife Lisa were married in 2012 and are blessed with three children.  Pastor Greg and Lisa are excited to be part of the Bethel Lutheran Ministries family.  You can often see their family taking walks or bike rides around the neighborhood and enjoying the community parks.  Pastor Greg has a passion for helping people live their faith in everyday life and find joy in following Jesus.  He would love to meet you while out and about in the community or the next time you visit Bethel.

  • Jonathan Guse

    Director of Christian Education


    Jonathan is the Director of Christian Education at Bethel Lutheran Ministries.  He came to Bethel in April 2018.  He attended Indiana University Kokomo where he received his degree in Secondary Education with plans of teaching history at a public school.  Shortly after graduating, he began to feel God's call which led him to pursue full time ministry as a DCE.  He went through the DCE Colloquy program at Concordia St. Paul.  His passion is youth ministry to reach and equip students to think critically about their faith and to pursue continual growth in their Christian walk.  He and his wife, Breanna, were married in July 2012.  Then, they were blessed with their son, Timothy, in April 2016 and daughter, Sophia, in January 2019.  He is anxious to see where God leads in the years to come here at Bethel!
