Kathy grew up in Alpha, NJ, and is the fourth of five children. One of her earliest memories, at age 4, is the day that her mother was baptized on a Sunday evening at church. The look on her mom’s face when she talked about being baptized made an indelible impression. At age 5, Kathy began to attend Sunday School with her mom and always had a desire to serve the Lord. She told her first Sunday School teacher that she wanted to be a missionary in Alaska to share Jesus with the Eskimos. Many godly men and women, Sunday School teachers, taught her the Scripture and what it means to be a follower of the Lord Jesus. At the age of 11, Kathy surrendered her life to the Lord and was baptized shortly thereafter. In her later teens, Kathy could be found at the church nearly every time it was open. Actively involved in Sunday School and Youth Group through her teen years. Kathy met her husband, a blind date arranged by mutual friends, and they were married in 1975. They’ve made their home in Easton for the past 45 years and proudly boast of their two daughters. Jerry & Kathy became part of the Bethel family in 1986.
