Pastor Rick Smith and his wife, Betty Lou, began serving the Bethel community in August 2016. Pastor Rick grew up in the suburbs of Chicago before moving to Milwaukee to attend University at Marquette. While in Milwaukee, he began his life of ministry by following God's call to the Philippines (where he met Betty Lou), to a Youth Pastor position, and eventually to seminary in Canada. After ministry in Canada, Arizona, Illinois, and Nebraska, they are very excited to be back in Wisconsin. They have two adult children, Stephanie and Michael, one Son-in-Law, Bryce, and two adorable granddaughters named Saoirse and Elora.
Pastor Matthew and Mandie Smith left their Green Bay home and accepted the role as our Youth Director in August, 2019.
