Communications Team

We love talking about Bethel. So we take the stories of our students, athletes, faculty, staff, alumni, donors, and friends, and communicate them to the outside world in a variety of ways.

Whether it's writing news stories for the website, creating Bethel Magazine, emailing our alumni, or reporting the latest sports scores, we strive to communicate about Bethel in a style that informs, engages, and inspires. With insight and creativity, we get out the news about Bethel.
