At Bethel Baptist we like to think of ourselves as a country church in the city. We are a friendly congregation that will make you feel welcomed the first time you walk through our doors. Pastor Parker is an Old Fashioned Gospel preacher, and we have Gospel Style music in our services.
Pastor Randall Parker and his wife, Carolyn, have been at Bethel Baptist Church for 25 years this May. They are originally from the mountains of North Carolina. The Parkers have three adult children: Cindy Haley (Mike), Scott (Carrie), and Ellen Halcomb (Mike), and seven grandchildren: Brock, Emily, Lane, Olivia, Emma, Charlie and Randy.
Before coming to Bethel, Pastor Parker pastored 12 years at Fellowship Baptist Church in North Carolina.
