Steve Dewitt

Speaker
Pastor Steve DeWitt has joyfully served as Bethel Church’s Senior Pastor since 1997. His primary responsibilities are teaching at our weekend services, shepherding the people, leading the staff, serving as an elder, and providing overall vision for the church, which now extends to five campuses in Northwest Indiana/Chicagoland. He’s on the council of the Gospel Coalition and often speaks outside Bethel while he enjoys traveling as a part of Bethel’s global mission efforts. His teaching ministry can be heard through Bethel’s Radio Ministry “The Journey,” which airs daily on Moody Radio. Steve released his first book in 2012 entitled, Eyes Wide Open: Enjoying God in Everything. After serving as a single pastor for many years, Steve was married to Jennifer in 2012. They rejoiced at the birth of their daughters Kiralee in 2013 and Madeline in 2015. The DeWitts live in Crown Point.

Terry Thompson

Speaker
Terry and his wife Kelly are both graduates of Faith Baptist Bible College.  They have two married daughters and six active grandchildren.  Since 1998, Terry has been the lead pastor of Rock Point Church in Crawfordsville, Indiana.  Under Terry’s leadership Rock Point has been transformed from an unhealthy, struggling church revitalization project of 20 people, to a thriving church of over 1,000 in Sunday morning worship.  Terry is a certified leadership coach and has personally worked with 100’s of pastors and ministry leaders.  He and Kelly are also the founders of Small Church USA, a nonprofit ministry whose mission is to encourage and strengthen pastors, pastors’ wives, and churches to revitalized health.
