Over the weekend of March 19, 2016, the Bethany Board of Directors met in Hepburn for the primary purpose of hearing from the Vision Working Group. Over the past year, the Vision Group has been developing a new program with a focus on providing foundational biblical learning and discipleship to our young people. Together the Board and Vision Group reviewed and assessed a number of available options, with the result that we have prayerfully discerned a path forward. 
The Board is now following up on several remaining details, and as soon as these activities are complete we will be sharing the exciting news of this new program.  We hope to be able to communicate the new program within the month.
We thank you, our Bethany partners and supporters, for your many prayers and continuing donations as we have gone through this important process.  As well, the Board would like to thank the Vision Group for their many hours of volunteer work to get us to this point.

With the news of the closure of Bethany College in the spring of 2015, a group of people felt drawn together to dream about the possibility of a renewed model for young adult discipleship and spiritual formation. The model for a renewed program was presented to the Bethany Board of Directors and our group was welcomed as an official working group of the board of directors. We are currently referred to as the Bethany Vision Working Group. Over the past few months we have been presenting our dreams and plan for a renewed program to alumni, supporters, and church leaders. These presentations have been met with affirmation and constructive feedback, which has helped to propel the vision further. With God’s leading, we feel that our dreams are becoming a reality.

As part of our next steps we desired to hire a small staff team to dedicate focused time and effort into this project. Thanks to the generous support of several donors we have been able to hire such a team for the short term.

The team began work in early January. They have brought a sense of energy and passion to the Vision Working Group. They are committed to seeing the dreams of the group become a reality. Please continue to pray with us as we seek God’s will for this program through careful research and planning. We strive to honour our rich heritage of Christian education and discipleship and we long to share God’s unending love and purpose for the generations to come.
