Local Outreach Partners

Bethany’s Local Outreach Team supports numerous ministries in the Seattle region. The ones listed here are part of our annual budget. Our Local Outreach team meets about 4-6x/year, and we love to have new people join us as we focus on things such as the ministry of reconciliation, reaching out to refugees, connecting with the Seattle Police Department, supporting homeless youth.
