Thank you for taking the time to get to know us and this wonderful church we call home. You are welcome at Bethany United Methodist Church. Regardless of who you are, where you come from, or what you’ve done, you’re welcome. We hope that our website is helpful in learning about the ministries and opportunities at Bethany, and we hope it will inspire you to get involved!
Bethany is a loving and warm church seeking to join God in making the world a better place. We are all seekers, and we still have much to learn as we follow Jesus. We believe that everyone has both things to learn from us and things to teach us.
If you’d like to join the church or to find out more, please don’t hesitate to contact us. As we seek to follow Jesus, we’d love to travel with you.
At Bethany we are blessed to have Rev. David Cochran and his family join us in July 2021. David and Jamie are Stanly County natives. They have been married since 2008 and have been blessed to have Cameron, Caroline, and Cole.
Prior to entering into full time ministry, David was a History teacher and Athletic Director at Carolina Christian School in Locust, NC. Following God's call, David became the Youth and Associate Pastor at Westford United Methodist Church in Concord. After completing seminary, David was appointed to Shiloh United Methodist Church in Concord. Jamie is a Course Coordinator for Cabarrus College of Health Sciences. She enjoys equipping new nurses to provide the best care possible. She also is the faculty representative for the College's Christian Student Union.
David and Jamie are blessed to call Bethany home. We invite you to join us and be a part of this family of God!
