Meet Our Staff


  *James Holloway served as our Associational Missionary/Associational Mission Strategist from April of 1999 through September of 2020. He has now retired from full-time associational ministry, and we are in the process of seeking a new Mission Strategist for the Bethel Baptist Association. Please keep us in your prayers as we go through this time of transition.

Since Joyce has retired Kathy now works 3 days a week. Kathy lives in Georgetown, Georgia, and is an active member of Shiloh Baptist Church in Fort Gaines, GA.  Send e-mail to:
