Bethel Church

San Jose, California
Bethel Church has a rich history of ministry and influence within the South Bay Area along with a dynamic and expressive worship culture. With campuses in San Jose and Santa Clara, CA, Bethel Church is on an upward trajectory with a new infusion of leadership and vision to see their community transformed for Jesus. The worship ministry is currently experiencing a healthy “passing of the baton” from a gifted and high-character leader who has invested years of his life into building teams and culture to a new younger leader who will take the team to new levels of expression, creativity and excellence.

Church Description *

Fueled by a core belief that “lost people matter to God so they ought to matter to us” Bethel Church was founded 71 years ago with a vision to reach the South Bay Area and beyond with the life-changing message of Jesus. This dynamic and growing community of over 1400 is stepping into its most missional and influential days under the leadership of Pastor Tom Van Kempen and the incredible staff God has brought around them.

Bethel is committed to creating a culture where both believers and unchurched people alike are drawn to Jesus in an irresistible way.  Everything they do is designed to reach people far from God and bring them into a growing relationship with Him while inspiring those in Christ to be His hands and feet to their community.  Inspired by excellence and generosity, Bethel Church is a multi-generational community who is married to the message of the Gospel, not the method by which it is delivered.  The method is ever changing in order to stay flexible and respond to the needs of the diverse culture of the community and next generation leaders.  One thing is for certain, God is moving at Bethel Church!
