Don Whipple, Lead Pastor


Welcome to BBC's website!  I hope that you find the information you are looking for and ways to contact us if you need more information.  My wife, Sue, and I moved to Winamac when I began as Lead Pastor of Bethel in December 2019.  We have served in pastoral ministry since 1975.  The 4 years previous to our ministry at Bethel, we served with Bethesda Outreach Ministries, caring for orphaned and vulnerable children.  God has blessed us with 3 above average sons who are each married to amazing ladies and together have given us 8 extraordinary grandchildren!  I enjoy the ministry of the Word, helping people with their problems and shepherding the church towards its calling in Christ Jesus.  We have discovered a wonderful group of people here at Bethel!  We trust, as God directs, to have the opportunity to connect with you!
