MEET OUR PASTOR
Meet Dr. Leigh and Charlotte Upchurch, our church pastor and his wife. This year, they celebrated their 54th wedding anniversary! Dr. Upchurch served as Chairman of the Department of International Ministries at Davis College in Johnson City, NY for 15 years, so his teaching style is reminiscent of classroom learning. While many churches today are geared toward emotionally pumping you up for the coming week, Dr. Upchurch's teachings are geared toward arming you with an understanding of who God is via the Bible, why we believe what we believe, and preparing for life as it hits us from every direction. Read more about Dr. and Mrs. Upchurch's background and family here.

LEARN ABOUT OUR HISTORY AND AFFILIATIONS
Bethesda Baptist Church is an independent, self-governed church that has associated itself with organizations of esteem and like-mindedness. While we are not governed nor controlled by these organizations, they are an invaluable resource, counsel, and friend to us.
