Property Development

Bethlehem’s Property Development planing is being led by two outstanding teams of dedicated disciples.

The Property Development Team, chaired by Jim Kautz, began its work in 2014 by reviewing our Strategic Plan then gathering input from members through focus groups, individual conversations, online surveys and congregational meetings. This led to a series of concepts and visions prepared by our architect, Larson Darby. These concepts evolved into a Master Plan and were eventually used to develop budgetary costs.

Property Development Team: Lynne Hepler, Phil Hildebrandt, Bob Gehm, Jim Kautz (chair), Julie Schelstreet, Brian Warner, Jill Wirig

The second team, Capital Campaign Core Team chaired by Brian Warner, is charged with working with The James Company, Bethlehem’s Capital Campaign Consultant, to develop and coordinate a capital campaign that will ultimately determine the overall scope of the project based on the financial support of the Bethlehem community. Through the end of 2016, you will be receiving invitations from this group to prayerfully consider how you can contribute to and participate in this exciting renewal of our church. Every person and family matters, and we hope that you will follow the process closely and be a part of the campaign in whatever way that you’re able.

Capital Campaign Core Team: John Anderson, Clark Andrews, Rob Gregory, Suzanne Heronemus, Phil Hildebrandt, Dee Johnson, Jim Kautz (Property Dev. Liaison), Pastor Mark, Pastor Sarah, John Swenby, Brian Warner (Chair), Mike Weible
