Pastor Mona Safley
Pastor Mona Safley recently came to us from southern Indiana and began as Bethel's Senior Pastor in July of 2017. Her background is quite unusual for a clergy person: she is a former national public speaker, newspaper columnist, and stock broker / Securities Trader.
A Kentucky native, she has lived in large cities most of her life , and grew up in the United Methodist Church. She has been a leader in choir, bell choir, UMW, Sunday School, and UMYF mission trips.
As for family, Pastor Mona has twin daughters, Katherine and Elizabeth, who have recently graduated high school and moved on to first jobs and college classes.
Personally, she treasures her friends, family, and faith above all. She is anxious to make some new friends up here in northern Indiana (Fort Wayne). Away from the church, she enjoys eating out, sports, music events, and taking lots and lots of pictures! Beware-she has been called the "Paparazzi Pastor!"
Come join us on Sunday mornings and help us get to know and welcome our new pastor.
