About Bethany

At Bethany, we empower leaders of faith through the integration of wisdom, theology, and the arts that point us towards just peace, curious intellect, and wild hope. Our teaching flows from our unique Anabaptist-Pietist heritage and tradition known as the Church of the Brethren. The Church of the Brethren offers a unique blend of practicality and spirituality grounded in service and simple living, reconciliation and peacemaking, scripture and community. It is through this lens that we strive to see the world flourish.


Student Life and Community

We understand that education involves the whole person. Who becomes your community? Where do you work and play, eat and sleep? What amenities does the campus offer? Explore these links to learn more about what to expect.
