Bethany Children’s Home officially called and received Reverend Kim Kendrick as Chaplain for the home on December 4, 2015. Kendrick is ordained in the United Church of Christ, and is a 2014 graduate of Lancaster Theological Seminary. Kendrick brings seven years of ministerial experience to Bethany, where she will provide worship and other services for youth and staff.
Kendrick joined Bethany as a supply minister in the spring of 2015, and has since then provided weekly worship services for the campus. Kendrick says,
“I am blessed to be the Chaplain at Bethany because at Bethany I am engaged in holistic ministry – our work impacts every aspect of our young people’s lives. I am honored to help youth address spiritual matters while also walking with them as they navigate family and peer relationships, the academic process, and vocational discernment. I experience my own transformation as I witness the growth of our youth and other staff.”
