Bro. Marvin's life was interrupted and changed forever in January of 1996 when he and his wife Dianne were both saved by the amazing grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He was called to the Gospel ministry a year later and preached his first sermon in January of 1997. He has been preaching the good news that Jesus Saves sinners ever since. It is their desire to see the lost saved and make disciples who follow Jesus and serve in the Body of Christ. He has been the pastor for Bethany since February of 2017. God has given them both a heart to reach out to all people with the love of God. They believe we must focus on reaching people just like you with the good news that God loves them and has a special place for them in His church. It is their desire to see people truly know God and experience the life changing grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

His vision is to establish God's kingdom here on earth.

My name is Jonathan Lewis. I am the Worship Pastor of Bethany Baptist Church. I was saved by the grace of Jesus in 1995. I was called by God into the ministry of music in 2007. I wanted to be able to give God my very best in leading His people in music; so I enrolled at Bossier Parish Community College and earned my Associates in music in 2010, I then went to Louisiana Tech University and earned a Bachelors in music (with an emphasis in classical guitar) in 2013. I then enrolled at Liberty University in Lynchburg Virginia and earned my Masters in Music education in 2016.

I have a passion to lead God’s people in music and song. I love working with other musicians to play in harmony together and worship our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. I love both the Traditional and contemporary Christian music, and I do a mix of both to minister to all generations.

My favorite quote is:

“The final aim and reason of all music is nothing other than the glorification of God and the refreshment of the spirit.”
By J.S. Bach
