Pastors Ben and Leslie Collier have led the people of Bethesda since 2010. They both have a desire to see people come to know Christ and begin to disciple others themselves. In 2014, they were both Ordained through the Assemblies of God. Pastor Ben has always dreamed that Bethesda would stretch beyond the Vanceburg community. During part of 2014 and early 2015, he was able to see that dream become a reality as Bethesda became a multi-site church. It has been a rewarding journey thus far.
Ben preaches and teaches messages that are relevant, and challenge all believers to do more for the Kingdom and grow personally on a daily basis. Leslie leads worship with a passion to lead others into God's presence to worship Him for who He is. Ben is originally from Lewis County, and Leslie from Greenup County. They have been married 10 years and live in Garrison, Kentucky. Both enjoy the outdoors, playing music and being out in the community spending time with people. Our pastors welcome you to Bethesda Church.
