Jerad Stager

Pastor Jerad Stager and his family joined Bethel Baptist Church in 2009.  Little did they know what God had in store for them!  Early in his time at Bethel, God began to work in Jerad’s heart to desire the office of a pastor. 

Over the next decade, God used the pastors at Bethel to mentor and prepare him to preach and teach the Word of God. 

After serving as a deacon for a few years, Pastor Stager was ordained in November of 2020 and then installed as Bethel’s pastor in May of 2021. 

Previously, Pastor Stager was a chemical engineer and business manager for 25 years before choosing to leave that career in order to take the oversight of the flock of God.
