New Ministry Opportunities


“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you! First, I would like to give you a short update of what the Lord has been doing in our lives during this last year. Earlier this May, Bethlehem Baptist Church voted to transition me from a Pastoral Resident position to a full pastoral staff position as Pastor for Worship and Hispanic Ministry. I feel honored and humbled, and ask for your prayers as I continue to serve at Bethlehem. Also, in June, the Lord allowed me to co- lead a short-term ministry team to my home country, El Salvador, where we had different opportunities to spread a passion for God’s supremacy through seminars, sermons (eight in just one Sunday!), children’s ministry, youth gatherings, testimonies, and fellowship. The Lord granted us a blessed time, all sustained by his grace and in his name. Finally, I want to thank you for your commitment to God-centered, Christ-exulting, joy-producing theological education, and for your continued support to The Alex Steddom Fund for international students. My personal life and ministry are influenced daily by the formative time that I experienced at Bethlehem College and Seminary.”

“I rejoice in the Lord even though doing ministry and studying at seminary simultaneously is a great struggle. Because my calling is to be a teacher and pastor, I now serve as a pastor for worship and music at Texas Kachin Baptist Church while studying at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. In addition, I preach a weekly online sermon to a small Kachin Church in San Francisco. Still, I have the desire to return to Myanmar and serve among Kachin churches, primarily through teaching at Kachin Theological College & Seminary in the near future. Even now, I teach an online course called “Biblical Theology of Worship” at Kachin Theological College & Seminary. I thank God for all my brothers and sisters who have contributed to The Alex Steddom International Student Fund, which has impacted the lives of countless individuals. I appreciate your generous gift. May God continue to bless you with grace and peace.”
