Mandy Monson

Youth Pastor

If you’ve joined us on a Sunday service at Bethel, you’ve heard our church’s saying: “When you’re here, you’re home.” That’s absolutely true for me. Like many of us here at Bethel, I relocated to this thriving hub in Maryland from another state. I’m originally from Syracuse, New York–but this area and this church has quickly become “a place to call home.” I’ve been happily serving as Youth Pastor here at Bethel since 2011.

I work with Rooted Youth (6th-12th grade) and serve as Middle School Chaplain for Bethel Christian Academy. I graduated from the University of Valley Forge with a B.A. in Theological Studies.

I love writing and the arts. My husband Phil and I share a passion for traveling and gaming. You can come talk to me anytime about video games, cheese, art, or my cat.

My mission is to equip students to become lifelong believers in Christ who honor God in every area of their lives. I am passionate about integrating creativity and discovery into young people’s experiences with God.

If you’re relocating to Maryland from another state or country, I hope you make the same discovery I did: Bethel is a place to call home where people are challenged to experience God.
