Campus Rental Success!

We were thrilled to host Cross-Trainers Baptist Church in our rental facility for their Easter weekend Retreat!

Here’s what they had to say about it:
“Our church was looking for a place that could accommodate a diverse age demographic of 3 months to 60+. We needed a place to use that included a house of worship, a kitchen well-equipped to feed over 100 people, a gymnasium that could facilitate team-building activities, and a sleeping area that was warm, welcoming, and cozy. We found the answer to our prayers at Bethany College.”

Dr. Keith Hillier joins the team as the new Program Lead for the Thrive Discipleship Program! In this capacity, Keith will oversee the development and impHillier_Keithlementation of the program in preparation for a fall start.

Keith has pastoral and para-church ministry experience in both urban and rural as well as monoculture and multicultural environments. Along with his pastoral experience he has served on faculty at several Christian colleges. He is excited about the discipleship process, vision and mission of our program here in Hepburn and is looking forward to getting started.

Keith is married with three children and will be relocating to Hepburn area from Steinbach, MB.

Next, we welcome Darryl Balzer, CA, CPA, who has been hired to oversee all aspects of theDarryl Balzer campus including Facility Management and Maintenance, Business Management and Rentals.  Darryl and his family moved to Hepburn this past spring and have loved the community since day one.  He has been following the progress and slowly learning about the vision for the program. As a follower of Christ, he is always keeping an eye open for opportunities to use his professional accounting background in ministry. He enjoys connecting with people and being part of a team aimed at accomplishing a common goal and in this case the goal of making disciples runs deep within his heart.  His passion for what we are doing here will be a great asset beyond the facilities as he will be a great ambassador for the Thrive program as well and will continue to look for opportunities to use his skills and personality to help form Whole and Holy Disciples.

Please keep these individuals and the Thrive Program in your prayers!

  1. I’m looking for my dad’s yearbook he graduated from Bethany Bible Institute Hepburn I believe it was somewhere between 1946 – 55 his name is Elvin Isaak. He has since gone home to the Lord. Would you have any records .

  2. Lorne, sorry to hear of the loss of your father. I apologize for not replying sooner as we have had volunteers taking care of media responses. All of our yearbooks have been moved to the archives in Winnipeg so we do not have any on campus.

    On behalf of Bethany, Donna

  3. Hi Greg,
