An Update from Our Leadership
Chris Palusky, President & CEO
I am honored to continue Bethany’s mission and vision that began almost 75 years ago. Faith in action is brought to life in Hebrews 11 and helps set the momentum as part of Bethany’s legacy: people stepping out in faith, mobilizing, dreaming, and taking next steps (large and small!) to help more children and families.
In 2017, for example, someone stretched to give a sacrificial gift. Someone told their refugee story for the first time at an event. Someone engaged their church to think differently about global orphan care. Someone became a foster parent. Someone made the brave decision to create an adoption plan. Someone welcomed a child into their family and home. Their faith fuels ours, that God will provide, sustain, and empower us to do Kingdom work for His children worldwide.
Bethany envisions a world where every child has a loving family. We could never dream like this on our own. But by faith - together - we’re enabled to do immeasurably more.
Thank you for your faith in us.
Garth Duer, Board Chair
You have helped to make a difference in people's lives. Because you gave, Bethany was able to serve more children in tough circumstances, more families in crisis, more expectant parents, more refugees, and more adoptive and foster families. You have joined us to be the hands and feet of Christ, reaching out to a world in deep need.
I invite you to support Bethany with your prayers as well as your continued gifts. Many challenges and opportunities lie ahead for Bethany - some exciting, others difficult - but God has always provided. I am humbled that God has led you to be part of this good work that touches so many lives. And I trust He will be faithful to complete it.
