We're excited to have a great lineup of speakers this summer at Durley. Learn more about them below.
Pastor Bethany Abbott is the Associate Pastor of Family Ministries at Monee Free Methodist Church in Monee, IL where she has served on staff since 2013. Pastor Bethany passionately believes that children can have a growing relationship with Jesus and are a vital part of God's Kingdom and His Church. When not working at the church or in the community, you will probably find Bethany with her nose in a book or up to her elbows in some crafting project. Durley camp has a special place in her heart and Bethany is incredibly excited to see what God has in store for Trailblazer Camp this summer! See you then!
