About Our Directory
Our invite-only, opt-in directory is hosted on the Church Center app.
We are excited to offer this feature to anyone who considers Bethany Bible Church as their home. We encourage you to add a profile photo and connect with others in the community.
Your information will remain private until you choose to share it. You can change your privacy settings or opt-out of the directory at any time.
Join Our Directory
Follow these steps to join our directory through Church Center:
Bethany Bible Church sends out invitation emails to active members within the congregation. This email contains a direct link that enables permission through that individual’s profile to access the directory.
If you have not received an email and would like to join our directory, please contact our office to request an invitation email.
Once you’ve accepted the invite through the link in your email, our directory is available to you through the Church Center app or web browser.

- Enter your mobile phone number OR click ‘Use email instead’ to log in.
- When using a web browser, do not close the sign in window when retrieving your code!
- If the directory page does not appear, click on ‘More’ in the top right and choose “Directory” to view.
After logging in, either at the top of a web browser page or at the bottom on the app, the following message will appear and prompt you to share your information if you desire.
Click ‘Share it now.’ to review your profile and select which information to share with others in the directory.
