Our Pastor

pastoral croppedPastor Michael Dunlap was appointed to serve our congregation in June 2014.  He was born and raised 7 miles east of St. Joseph, the middle of two sisters.  He   graduated from Northwest Missouri State University in Maryville, Missouri with an Agricultural Business degree, and from Saint Paul School of Theology with a Masters of Divinity.  His grandmother and extended family lives in Bethany and the surrounding area, so Bethany has always been a “second home.”  He enjoys spending time with his family, traveling, mission trips, and cars.
