Our ministers form a team of servant-leaders who build on the foundations of prayer and Christ-centeredness.
As Senior Pastor, Brad takes great pleasure in preaching, shepherding, equipping, and challenging. God has given Brad enthusiasm for multiplying disciples through small groups, which are geared toward forming meaningful connections and relationships.
Brad and his wife, Lori, are blessed with three incredible boys: Drew (18), Mark (16), and Ben (13). The Stamey family are sports fanatics, especially when it comes to basketball. Brad is a graduate of UNC–Chapel Hill, Southern Seminary, and Golden Gate Seminary.
Having served in Russia as a church planter for 15 years, Brad has a passion for missions and a desire to facilitate a “sending” culture. Brad is excited to lead Bethany on an incredible journey as we discover together how to make disciples that are living out authentic Christian community; it is a journey of dying to ourselves and letting Christ live through us.
Minister of Discipleship
Brian, a native of North Carolina, serves Bethany as the Minister of Discipleship. He received his B.A. in Business Administration from UNC–Charlotte and holds a M.Div. from Gardner-Webb University in Boiling Springs, NC. He was previously employed as support staff in two other churches in North Carolina before coming to serve at Bethany.
Brian and his wife April have three sons: William, Samuel, and Owen. They enjoy walking Daisy (their yellow lab) and spending time together in the mountains, especially in the fall. Brian enjoys all kinds of music, and watches SportsCenter exclusively. He also loves Italian food and Pepsi is his beverage of choice.
Brian has a deep desire to see others grow in their walk with Christ, and his hope is for Bethany to continue pursuing Christ. In that pursuit he hopes to see lives being changed, souls being saved, and disciples being made! His passion is to point others to Christ daily through word and deed.
Minister of Youth
Travis has had the privilege of serving as Bethany’s Minister of Youth since May 2013. From his hometown of Mount Gilead, NC, Travis went on to receive a B.S. in Psychology and Sociology from Wingate University. He then went on to receive his M.Div. from Wake Forest University School of Divinity and is currently pursuing a Doctor of Ministry at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.
Travis strives to provide a ministry that relevantly engages the youth culture by meeting each student where he or she is spiritually. Travis’ ultimate goal is for each of his youth to know Christ and make Christ known. John 3:16 is one of his favorite verses – not because it is so well known, but because of the radical implications that it carries. Many people read “eternal life” in this verse as some future event to be obtained, but the passage carries with it the radical implication that life everlasting has broken into this life. The moment we place our faith in Jesus Christ is the moment our lives are changed forever. Travis prayerfully works to help students know Christ and know Him more fully.
Minister of Music and Worship
As Minister of Music, Jackie has the amazing opportunity to serve, encourage and teach others about God through music. Although born and raised in a small town in Pennsylvania, she and her husband, Tony, quickly fell in love with Winston-Salem upon moving here in 2015. She started developing a passion for music ministry while in youth group. Since then, God has provided many opportunities for her to lead worship in various settings. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Shippensburg University and later received her Master of Arts in Music and Worship from Liberty University.
She and Tony enjoy being outdoors and love traveling to new places. They like to visit with family and friends, try new restaurants and sit around a campfire. They also enjoy spending time with their 6-pound Chihuahua, Brutus.
Jackie has a strong passion for worshipping God in Spirit and truth, and desires to lead others to do the same. Ultimately, her desire for Bethany is to offer God worship that honors and glorifies Him. Psalm 115:1 says, “Not unto us, O Lord, not unto us, but to Your name give glory, because of Your mercy, because of Your truth.”
Frances has served as Office Administrator and Ministry Assistant at Bethany since 2003. Her job consists of overseeing all forms of communication to the congregation as well handling the financial affairs of the church.
There is a bench in Frances’ office which is a favorite place for members of Bethany to drop by and conduct business or chat. Frances is a great listener and creates an environment where members feel comfortable coming by the office to share concerns, joys, problems, or just to say hello.
Frances and her husband, Steve, have two children: Stephen and Susan. Her three grandsons are the absolute joy of her life, and she stays quite busy watching them play baseball and basketball.
Frances’ other hobbies include reading, crocheting, and quilting. Being involved in Bethany’s quilt ministry has been one of her greatest blessings.
For Bethany, Frances’ hope is that the church continues to grow spiritually in order to continue the Church’s long history of faithfulness and service to the lost and hurting.
