Pastors Kent & denise BEll- Founders

Kent and Denise Bell have served as the Senior Pastors of Bethel Life Worship Center since 2013. Their vision to share the love of Christ with the lost and hurting led them to bring light to the darkness of the victims of human trafficking. Their belief is that it isn't the job of the world to shine light into the darkness...That's the job of the church. While state- and federally-funded programs are often helpful and mean well, it is only the lifesaving power of Jesus Christ that can fully restore the broken.
