Great news to share! Dr. Shane Garrison has been asked to stay on at Bethany Baptist Church in Louisville, KY as their “permanent” interim pastor.
Garrison has been preaching weekly at Bethany since mid-September. As of Nov. 7, Garrison will stay on until they secure a senior pastor whether it be a few months or longer.
Bethany BC is located on the corner of Taylorsville and Bardstown Road in the Highlands district. It is a historic church with many connections to Southern Seminary, Campbellsville University and numerous mission organizations in Jefferson County.
Garrison is joined by Dr. Tom Bolton who serves as Minister of Music and Bro. Nick Webb who is the Youth and Children’s Minister. Dr. Bolton serves on the music faculty at SBTS in the School of Church Ministries and was formerly the Dean of the School of Music. Bro. Nick is a seminary student pursuing his M.Div.
Bethany’s people are quite eclectic. There is a strong number of senior adult members and a good number of young families, including many seminary connected couples. There is diversity in the church as we have attenders from India, Korea, China, Africa and all parts of Louisville. There is even a Korean church that use the facility called True Light Korean Baptist Church.
In all the church is seeking to reach more people for Christ and become a light in their neighborhood.
