Jerry Crivellaro

Born in Easton, Pa Jerry is the oldest of three boys. He met his wife, Kathy, on a blind date in 1974. Not long after their first meeting, she shared the Gospel and invited him to church. In early 1975 he surrendered his life to the Lord and later that year they were married. Jerry became a meat cutter and remained in that profession for 25 years. He then became a business owner and later drove school bus for 7 years until becoming the Transportation Supervisor for Wilson Area School District for three years until retirement. Jerry worked for 4 years as the Facilities Coordinator for Easton Arts Academy and is now officially retired from there.  Jerry’s involvement at Bethel encompasses many capacities over his 30 plus years of membership, such as softball player/coach, youth leader, AWANA secretary, men’s choir, Trustee, Treasurer, and currently as Elder assigned to Outreach. He has also served on short-term missions trips in Ecuador, Brazil, and India.  Jerry and Kathy were blessed with two girls, Kyla Rae and Jeri Jo, and gives all thanks and praise to HIS Lord and Savior for forgiving him of his sins and allowing him to serve.

Dayo Adedoyin

Their journey to Easton (Palmer township), PA, started in Nigeria where Dayo was born into a Christian and loving family. His parents brought him up with an understanding of who God is and the importance of having a relationship with Him. This has developed into a personal and growing faith in God. Dayo and his wife moved to the US over 30 years ago and after residing in several other places and regions in the US, they moved to Western NJ in 2003. After visiting several churches in NJ and neighboring PA, they settled down in Bethel Memorial Baptist Church (BMBC) which has been their church home since then.  Dayo lives in Lopatcong, NJ, with his wife and daughter. BMBC family has been their family away from home (still sounds strange to call a place you have not lived in for more than 30 years “home”, but we all cherish our heritage and background). It has been a joy and privilege to have opportunities, not just to worship as part of the BMBC family, but to serve the Lord through BMBC in various ministries, capacities, and positions, including in leadership.  We thank God that He has found us worthy to be workmen and women in His vineyard here at Easton and to be part of a congregation supporting the wider work of spreading the gospel and developing disciple-makers around the world.  May He find us faithful to our calling.

Bonnie Hanni

Bonnie was born into a Christian Family in Wilson Borough, later moving with her family to Palmer Township. She smiles as she admits that she doesn’t remember a time in her life that Bethel wasn’t a major part of her family as her parents were actively involved in building the church building on Chestnut Ln. She became a custodial employee as a teenager and continues this service today alongside her father. After Bonnie met and married her husband she started to attend his church for a period of time but never lost her connection to Bethel occasionally attending services and faithfully cleaning the church every week.

Pastor Brent

Born in Williamsport, PA, in 1962. His family attended a small Protestant church, but it was through a neighborhood Bible Club at the age of five that he was challenged to personally trust in Christ as Savior. During his Junior High years, he wanted to know for certain that Jesus was his Savior. His church did not emphasize the need for a personal response to Christ, but the Bible Club camp he attended was clear: each person must admit their sin, believe Christ died and rose again for their sin, and then pray to receive Christ as personal Savior.
