Sam Newnes

College Director

How long at Bethany & in what areas have you been connected/served?

My mom, dad, sister and I have been coming to Bethany as long as I can remember, probably somewhere around 21 years.  I went through Bethany School K-8 and attended youth ministry on Sundays Pre-K through 5th grade, I then attended the Herd and the Way regularly in Junior High and High School.  I then served in the Herd as an intern for 2 years and volunteered another year after that.  I am now the college ministry director here at Bethany. 

What are some of your favorite hobbies?

I enjoy painting/drawing as well as playing board games with my friends. 

What’s something you want people to know about you?

I am passionate for the Church and want to work in some capacity to serve the Church community for the rest of my life. 

What do you love about our community at Bethany?

I love the age range and long standing history we have at Bethany and have really come to love the resource of wisdom we have here and hope to connect with more of those wise members when I get the chance.
